Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Stanley Kubrick once said in an interview he gave up doing "Crime Films" because Jean-Pierre Melville did the greatest with Bob le Flambeur (1956) and Jacques Becker did the second best with Touchez Pas au Grisbi (1954). He later directed A Clockwork Orange (1971) however stating he never considered it a "crime film", but a socio-political film. See more »
Goofs McKimmie demonstrates the four-dial combination-lock for the gang by turning all four dials before opening and closing it. But when Roger practices his safe-cracking technique on it, he misses the upper-right dial and instead works the lower-right dial a second time (after sandpapering his fingertips). See more »
