Trivia The film was shot over a period of 28 days. See more »
Goofs The police broadcast the license number of Dolan's car in which Woods and Goldie are fleeing (1U-42-91), but it's not the same as the actual license plate of their Lincoln which is visible in several shots (4B72-47); when the car is wrecked, it suddenly changes from a Lincoln to a Ford, and now bears the same license number as the one originally broadcast.
