In this film, Jesse explains to Officer Luther Simpson why he calls him "Suitcase." He said he calls him that after Harry "Suitcase" Simpson, a baseball player who "traveled a lot." Luther replies, "But I've lived here all my life." And Jesse says, "I don't know. It just seemed to fit." (And of course, the officer and ball player share a last name.) See more »
Joe Genest is shown threatening Jesse Stone with a revolver equipped with a suppressor (silencer). With the exception of obsolete Russian Nagant M1895, revolvers are not able to be suppressed because of the cylinder/barrel gap allows hot gas, and therefore sound, to escape. The use of a Nagant M1895 by a hit man would be nonsense. It is a collectible gun, ammo is not readily available, and the use of a common auto pistol with common ammo is what a hit man would use.

You alright, sir?
So, what are you doing here at 4 in the morning?
I'm a cop.
Got a badge?
I *was* a cop, I'm leaving town. I just thought I'd stand here for a while 'til I went.

One of the best reasons we don't go to a 'theatre' anymore
Comments not just for 'Night Passage': My wife and I have quickly noticed a recent ground-swell of others who've keenly picked up on this wonderful CBS-released series with Tom Selleck, Kathy Baker and the ever-entertaining Kohl Sudduth as 'Suit(case)' Simpson. The scripts, dialogs, excellent camera-work, the wonderful lighting, directing, staging ...and the supreme mood created with Jeff Beal's superb music, all set a complete and satisfying tone for enjoying one of the, IMHO, best series ever produced for television, bar none. Selleck, in his maturity, is a great performer in character (he has done so well in recent westerns - which we rarely get to see enough of from today's 'Wacky' Follywood!) and as the 'recovering' scotch-drinking sheriff in the sleepy-but-up-tight New England town he slides into from his former LA police job on his 'last stop', his character lives up to the ideal that Robert Parker must have envisioned in his books. Sandie and I encourage you to try out some of television's best in today's cocky world with the 'Jesse Stone' series. Quality is still among us, believe it or not, and we believe you'll be very pleasantly surprised with the efforts. We now own all 7 DVDs including 'Innocence Lost', and watch them frequently when we need to get away from the world from time-to-time. I, personally, think you'll find them 'timeless.' Watch 'Jesse Stone' - become a believer again.
