Goofs

When the cop car stops the speeding station wagon from fleeing the airfield, the wagon runs into the passenger side door of the cop car, which is obvious by the way the cop car rocks sideways. But then they are both shown close up, there is enough space between them for the mafia gunman to get out of the passenger door of the cop car and there is no sign of the cop car being hit in that area.

An Interesting Historical Footnote

Mafia gunmen sent by their boss to kill a rival gang leader take over a small airfield where their target is scheduled to land. While waiting for the man they're going to kill, they terrorize the employees of the airfield, one of whom starts to devise a plan to turn the tables on their captors.

Appalachin or Apple Lake? Clearly the latter is inspired by the former. But that is largely where the similarities end. Heck, it seems like not even all the guys in the film are supposed to be Italian. But, I guess that is a safe move.

How much was known about the Mafia in 1959? Today (2015) we are still learning more, but in 1959 it was quite fresh, with the FBI only just beginning to look into the men involved. In a way, this film is ahead of its time, whether strictly accurate or not.
