Anachronisms 

When assistant D.A. Tommy Kelly goes to the D.A.'s mansion to tell him he has enough evidence to convict Johnny Dangerously, he says he has, among other things, recordings, and he holds up a reel of audio tape. This scene is set in the 1930s, but magnetic tape wasn't invented until the late 1940s.

During the chase scene after Johnny escapes prison Alan Hale's desk sergeant character is giving updates during the chase. He is reading the information from tractor-fed paper from a dot-matrix type printer (notice the pin holes along both sides of the paper), which wasn't around in the 1930's. It wasn't widely used until the 1960's.

Character error 

Vermin supposedly found out that Johnny Dangerously's real last name is Kelly after Tommy gets married. However, Vermin and Johnny knew each other as kids, so Vermin would have known what his last name was already.

Factual errors 

Danny Vermin has a (fictional) .88 Magnum revolver, which features an unusually long barrel. Caliber refers to a bullet's diameter, so the barrel should also be unusually thick.
