Trivia A "Perfume Apple" was a small, handmade smoke bomb or acid irritant, typically packed in a glass perfume sample. They were widely used by hoods and wise guys circa early 1930's to intimidate small businesses into paying extortion for protection rackets. See more »
Goofs When the Assistant D.A. introduces the photograph in court to prove the defendant/racketeer was present in The Bohemian Cafe as both leading characters and the restaurant owner testified he was, trying to extort a $150 protection fee/membership in the Benevolent Association, the photograph clearly shows a man sitting in a chair at a table in the back corner. He also was briefly seen the day of the extortion attempt with another man in that back corner, before the photograph was taken. However, when the photographer actually snapped the photo, and the flash bulbs exploded, the men at the table were gone, and the chair on the right side of the table, by the door, is empty.
