In the mission "Buzzsaw", Joe made a comment about Vito being able to heal so quickly while they were on their way to send Henry to El Greco.

The game is set in the 1940s and finishes in 1951. Most of the songs on the radio, like the music of Ritchie Valens and Buddy Holly, did not come out until much later in the 1950s. See more
