Pretty Boy Floyd, a 1930s outlaw, is seen throughout the movie using German-made MP-40 machine guns which were used by Nazi soldiers during World War II and not available in the U.S. until after the war (illegally, of course). He is also seen using 1950's era snub-nose .38 revolvers. Pretty Boy Floyd famously used a pair of 1911-style .45 automatics. See more »

Pretty Boy Floyd is a rather pedestrian and overlong biopic of the famous gangster. Luckily there's an outstanding cast on hand to lend the film some much needed credibility: John Ericson is fine as Pretty Boy, but it's great to see Barry Newman, Peter Falk, and Al 'Elect Me Governor' Lewis playing his various sidekicks. We even get Jason 'Brain That Wouldn't Die' Evers as Floyd's nemesis, the determined local lawman.
