Officer on rooftop:
Give me your hand. Give me your hand.
In the opening rooftop chase the crook and the officer and Jimmy jump across from one rooftop to another. The distance is no more than 5 or 6 feet and yet when the officer falls and the shot shows him on the ground the buildings are a full alley width apart, at least double what the distance they supposedly jumped.
There is no end title on this film.
An entirely new audio track was created for the 1996 re-release using modern recordings and mixed in DTS surround sound. New elements not present in the original film were added and several important details (such as creaky roof tiles) were omitted. This was the version used on all subsequent theatrical re-issues, home video releases and television broadcasts until 2012, when Universal made a DTS soundtrack retaining the original sound effects.
