In Chicago in September 1936, a young con man seeking revenge for his murdered partner teams up with a master of the big con to win a fortune from a criminal banker.
The movie was filmed on the backlot of Universal studios and the diner in which Hooker meets Lonnegan is the same diner interior used in Back to the Future (1985) in which Marty McFly first meets his father and calls Doc Brown.
Glad to meet you, kid. You're a real horse's ass.
Johnny Hooker: Luther said I could learn something from you. I already know how to drink.
Hooker tells Lonnegan he's from the East Side of New York. Yet he doesn't even have the slightest trace of an accent.
The opening animated logo for Universal Pictures is in 1930s style, matching the movie's setting, instead of the 1970s version.
