This game is Emmrich-Moritz, Bad Oyenhaussen 1922. Harry Moseby, Gene Hackman's character, ponders how Black missed the win with 26...Qxh2+ 27. Kxh2 Ng4+ 28. Kg1 Nh3+ 29. Kf1 Nh2#. The alternate outcome is presented as #204 in Reinfeld's 1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate, and on this site as Tactics Training problem #0026289. When this one came up in Tactics Training I recognized it but too slowly, getting -7 for getting it right.
