Based on the story of Ronald Christopher "Buster" Edwards (Phil Collins), one of the thieves involved in "The Great Train Robbery" of 1963.
Buster Edwards' real name was Ronald Christopher Edwards.
We're gonna get famous now. More popular than Christine Keeler AND the Beatles!
Buster and June's daughter Nicky was two years old in 1963. However, in the movie, she is clearly old enough to be in school.
Buster Edwards never got the deal he hoped for. On the 9th December 1966 he was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for conspiring to rob Her Majesty's Royal Mail Train.
The initial U.S. release of this film had its running time cut from 102 minutes to 94 minutes by its U.S. distributor, Hemdale Films. The subsequent video release by HBO Home Video was based on this edited version, however, a more recent release by MGM Home Video includes the complete film uncut.
