After escaping from the Crown Point jail, John Dillinger robs the local bank. While he did not rob this bank in real life, according to Ed Saager, the garage mechanic Dillinger forced to drive the getaway car, as they were passing by the bank, John Dillinger did jokingly comment, "Geez, I wish I wasn't in such a hurry to get outta here...I'd love to stop by that bank."

During the Little Bohemia shootout when most of the gang is gathered in the lodge's lobby exchanging fire with the FBI, Nelson can be seen in the background loading a 50-round drum magazine into his Tommy gun. During his next close-up, it's loaded with a 30-round box magazine. See more »
One of my all time fave actors played the gun toting thug to the hilt. Also, Ben Johnson was excellent as the obsessive detective dedicated to bringing the hellraising criminal to justice. He did cheat a tad but got the job done with no tears being shed for the hoodlum. Very good action film: I'll never forget the huge cringe I gave when the getaway car ran over a woman and dragged her beneath it for a ways. This was Oates doing some of his best work.
