Trivia Based on a true story that happened in February 1953. See more »
Goofs The front license plate on the villains' car disappears and reappears between scenes throughout the film. For instance, when Gene and the villains leave the bar and Gene's narration specifically points out the villains made sure he didn't see their license plate (they made him wear taped glasses) as they walk past the front of the car, there is no license plate on the car, but moments later at the railroad crossing, it's there again.
