Revealing mistake: After Hooker escapes the attack by Lt. Snyder in the phone booth, he runs down an alley. On a cross street in the distance, a modern sedan and large white truck drive by.
Factual error: When Lonnegan brings the briefcase full of money to the cage for his big bet, all of the 100s in the case are 60s federal reserve notes, which obviously did not exist in the 1920s or 30s.
Trivia: Even though it sets the mood for the film, Scott Joplin's ragtime music was no longer popular during the 1930s.
