In the motel scene just before the robbery of the Hayes City Bank, an agent yells out "Floyd - FBI!". At that time, the agency was known as the Bureau of Investigation (BOI). Charles Arthur Floyd was brought down on October 22 1934. It was in in July 1935, nine months after Floyd's death that the Bureau was renamed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). See more »
Not very close to the facts, but entertaining nonetheless
This one follows the exploits of Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd (Fabian) and his gang as they rob banks through out Midwestern states (although it was entirely shot in Texas). It is pretty obvious that director Larry Buchanan is cashing in on the success of BONNIE & CLYDE (1967); for the second time actually as he made a B&C ripoff in 1968. For a low budget picture, they capture the small town feel pretty well. But reading any quick online bio for Floyd will show you the filmmakers are playing fast and loose with the truth. Floyd here - perhaps thanks to Woody Guthrie's song - is a romanticized, modern day Robin Hood-type with plenty of love for the ladies. Fabian acquits himself well in the lead role and the gorgeous Jocelyn Lane plays his love interest Betty. Adam Roarke has a small role as the character Preacher. An amazing amount of the supporting cast (Annabelle Weenick, Camilla Carr, Hugh Feagin, Gene Ross) later showed up in the horror works of S.F. Brownrigg.
