First Universal Studios film to win the Best Picture Oscar since All Quiet on the Western Front (1930).
Your boss is quite a card player, Mr. Kelly; how does he do it?
Johnny Hooker: He cheats.
During the draw poker hand that Gondorff wins with three 10s, there are two rules violations. After they draw cards and Lonnegan bets $500, Gondorff says "call and raise". This is not allowed; since the first word Gondorff said was "call", he would only be allowed to match the $500 bet, especially in a high stakes game (unless he was playing with extremely lenient poker players). Furthermore, he would not be allowed to raise a mere $300, or any amount less than $500; all raise amounts must at least match the amount of the prior bet.
The opening animated logo for Universal Pictures is in 1930s style, matching the movie's setting, instead of the 1970s version.
