Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film, in the scene when Ed is cutting Tolliver's hair, we see Ed holding scissors with his thumb and middle finger, yet, in the following shot he is holding them with thumb and index finger. There was no time nor need to change fingers; besides, a clipping sound is heard throughout the scene, which implies Ed never takes off scissors in order to change fingers. (00:10:05)

Ed is sentenced to the electric chair.
Reidenschneider: The more you look, the less you really know. It's a fact, a true fact. In a way, it's the only fact there is.
