Did You Know?
The character of Cody Jarrett was based on New York murderer Francis Crowley, who engaged in a pitched battle with police in the spring of 1931 at the age of 18. Murdered on January 21, 1932, his last words were: "Send my love to my mother." See more
In the last scene after Cody and the gang try to escape the refinery (after the Police presence has been made known), the day to night continuity during the escape/shoot-out scene changes far too fast. After a Police character says ..."Get some search lights", the film goes straight from noticeable day-for-night photography to actual night photography. See more
