When the boys are on the train, the whistle of a steam locomotive is heard on several occasions. The movie takes place in 1962 but the last steam locomotive on the New Haven Railroad was retired ten years earlier and, in any case, would not have been used from Connecticut to New York City.

"Adolescent sex fantasies among the adult, urban male."
1962. It was a simplier time. Kennedy was not yet assassinated. Elevators still had operators in them. I was in high school. And, you could make a hit movie like "Boys' Night Out" with not much of a story, but with sevral big stars. As a teenager I had a big crush on Kim Novak. I thought she was the embodiment of the perfect, beautiful, sexy girl. Almost 40 years later I can still say I think she was just about the most attractive female star ever. And, she is very good here as the graduate student doing a study for her advanced degree in Sociology. James Garner was just perfect as her eventual love interest.
