George Raft and Wallace Beery were at odds during filming. According to Raft, before the fistfight scene, Beery asked Raft to let him throw the first punch and then proceeded to sucker-punch Raft, knocking him out for several minutes. "When I came to I got up and called him everything I could think of," Raft said. They then fought for real, and the crew had to break it up. See more »

The version shown on Fox Movie Channel runs seven seconds over 87 minutes. Apparently it is a reissue copy, the missing five minutes due to reediting to fit post code rules. Though it was made for Twentieth Century Films, a new start up film studio organized by Joe Schenck, Bill Goetz (L.B. Mayer's son-in-law) and ex-Warner Bros. production chief Darryl Zanuck, the FMC version is presented under the post merger logo of Twentieth Century Fox complete with fanfare and an end title crediting distribution to TCF. This year a full uncut version was shown at New York's Film Forum which clocked several minutes over ninety minutes. See more »
I love this freekin movie! Walsh is a true master of the cinematic form, his film have been sometimes in my opinion, overlooked. But this film is a favourite of mine because it really gives you the feel of the time the film was set in.\
All the wonderful characters that existed, the lifestyle, the mode of dress, the way they spoke, OK they might be exaggerated, but it is good to know that there were occasion when two men tried to outdo each other with insane stunts.
I just felt it was apiece of history thats should be wathced by many people and appreciated because of that fact.
Can I get it somewhere on DVD? I have only seen it on TV. But for anyone wanting a slice of life movie about that period of time this is the perfect one.
