When Emma Hollis said that 'The Enforcer' was her favorite detective movie, I figured she was talking about THIS film:

Ah, Herr Doktor, I was waiting for someone to point this out... and I very nearly added a parenthetical reference to The Enforcer (1976). You're right to call me on this one as Emma does not specify which of the two films with this title she favors. Perhaps, like me, she's a big Dirty Harry fan? Given the subject of her conversation with Frank, however, and the emphasis on the detective genre, I felt it was safe to label The Enforcer (1951) as her favorite. Give yourself a bonus point for catching this, however!
