Trivia

During the beginning of the film Steve McQueen is singing with the band. His singing is obviously dubbed with that of another singer who is not even close to McQueen's voice. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the film, right after Slim seats Georgette and Margaret Rose in his car, he closes the door and the camera along with the head of the camera operator can be briefly glimpsed in the rear passenger-side window; then in the next shot, as Slim is backing the car out, the entire crew, as well as their equipment, can be seen reflected on the driver side of his car.

Bleak, but real...
25 June 2000 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Being a parole officer myself,this uniquely sad and frustrating movie is exactly what goes on in the recitivist's life. A good caring wife, new family, he knows what his weak points are, but does them anyway maintaining the downward spiral to the inevitable return to prison. The victim here is not McQueen but the wife and child and their helplessness in getting him to be what they want. A responsible and loving husband/father. This is exactly what we see in the job every day. The sad part, there is no help or hope for the family....
