Late in the movie when Jerry (Russell Hopton
) shows Cagney his money-making scam of selling "swastika charms" there is an abrupt edit, probably a close-up of what the charm looked like. Swastikas had been considered good-luck charms until the advent of the Nazis two years after this movie was released, and the edit almost certainly took place between then and 1941 when other war-related edits took place in Hollywood (e.g., anything relating to Italy in The Marx Brothers A Night at the Opera
(1935). See more
The W/C (if indeed it is such) in the jewelers room had only a sink in it. Although it is not uncommon even today for hotel rooms to have only sinks in them with a communal W/C on the same floor, it does not make sense for there to be a separate room even partitioned off with a door if it only has a sink in it.
