Hi, The script for the French Connection in the part where Irv is tearing apart the car to look for the coke hidden in the car may be an accurate script, but it is not what Gene Hackman actually said (maybe he ad-libbed). When irv says "I tore everything out of this car except the rocker panels" Popeye then says, in his typical excited voice something like "The rocker panels ? what's that ? cmon irv !" with the "cmon irv" being a sarcastic remark in tone meaning something like "why didn't you open the rocker panels, open em up now." Thanks for having this site with the screen script. It's very helpful.

At 3:34 Gene Hackman as Santa asks the littl boy called Eric, "What do you want for Christmas, Eric? Hm? Eric: A Johnny Lightning 500. Is that (in Blake Snyder Beat Sheet terms) the theme of the movie: to get the Johhny Lightning 500 before Christmas. Question 2: Is the car in which Alain Chanier is driving, the car containing the drugs, a Johnny Lightning 500?

Gil, you actually watched the entire film and think they're looking for coke in the rocker panels?

Gil, They found heroin in the rocker panels. Not coke. The plot of The French Connection about heroin smuggling.
