Two elderly gangsters are released from prison only to find they have trouble fitting in as old men who still take no guff from anyone.
During the shootout on the train the Eli Wallach character says "top of the world ma". This is a reference to the famous James Cagney movie, _White Heat_, released in 1949, and regarded as one of the great classic gangster movies.
I'm tellin' ya, Harry...
Harry Doyle: I know, I know. We could have got away with it.
Archie Long: Did I say that before?
Harry Doyle: Every day for thirty years.
When Archie flags the train, it stops with the engine's drive rods near their highest point on the wheels. But when the train starts to move again, the rods are down close to the ground.
