Sheriff Slade is in hot pursuit of the pair, and rich girl Bonnie Lee Packard becomes romantically involved with Curley, and helps the fleeing duo stay one step ahead of the sheriff.Written by
The downtown car chase scene and courthouse scenes were filmed at Lawrenceburg in Anderson county with lots of locals as extras. See more »
In the very last scene when the train goes by, the locomotive and caboose are Union Pacific equipment re-lettered L&N (Louisville and Nashville RR) so the scene must have been filmed in southern California. See more »

Question about the statue in front of the courthouse
I would like to ask a question about the statue in front of the courthouse: Does anyone know who the person is that is represented by the statue in the scenes in front of the courthouse with Michael Sarrazin and Sue Lyon? I believe the courthouse is in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Would appreciate any information anyone would have. Saw the movie many years ago, but really enjoyed it. George C. Scott is good as he always was, plus I remember thinking that Michael Sarrazin and Sue Lyon were also good in their roles. It is a nice romantic movie for teens or really for anyone of any age. But it is probably pretty dated now, by today's standards.
