Did You Know?

The extras in the fight scenes are people who were nearly exclusively those who are involved or were involved in the London underworld apart from certain stunt-men. after setting up the Leeds fight scene for most of the day the extras had had one too many beers got a little carried away and one of the stars got his head cut open with a punch. at that Cass and some others had to step in as to this day they work security at night clubs and are used to confrontations.See more »
Factual errors: When Cass is being released from prison, the officer who confiscates the notebooks is shown wearing sergeant's chevrons on his epaulets. There is no "sergeant" rank in the prison service. The pullover is part of a Police uniform, and they would not be involved in the running of the prison.See more »
