Film trivia Michael Cimino modelled the film after his favourite film from the 1950s 1955's Captain Lightfoot.

Before Michael Cimino hit Oscar gold with visceral Vietnam War melodrama The Deer Hunter, he directed a little film called Thunderbolt and Lightfoot that starred Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges as Thunderbolt and Lightfoot respectively.

Eastwood provides his usual understated cool as Thunderbolt, but the real star of this film is Jeff Bridges as Lightfoot, a dazzling and charismatic performance that earned the actor his second Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor (he lost the award to Robert De Niro for The Godfather Part II).
