Herman Miller wrote the screenplay to Coogan's Bluff and then created McCloud, using the same basic story.

Referenced during the "The Cowboy Way" review.
When Mrs. Richardson asks Morse, whom she is trying to seduce, if he will help her with the zipper on her dress and he, against her wishes, firmly zips it up instead of down, this is an echo of the scene between Clint Eastwood's Coogan character and a prostitute in the Don Siegel film.
The fight scene where Thursday and Strange take on Cole Mathews and his gang is filmed as an unmistakeable homage to the fight scene in a poolroom in the earlier film, something made clear when Strange, like Clint Eastwood in Don Siegel's movie, uses a billiard cue, first to hit someone in the stomach and then as a club.
Clip with tarantula very biefly projected on wall of psychedelic dance club. Eastwood had a small uncredited role in the film.
