Continuity mistake: When Jack Carter drives up to Cliff Brumby's house, watch the shadow on the window in the background. A shadow of someone appears in the window, disappears for a second, and then re-appears in a different place in the window. (00:46:00)
Question: Why does Jack insist that his pint of bitter be in a THIN glass? I've tried doing some Google research on the question and haven't come up with a satisfactory answer. One person says it's a Northerners vs Southerners custom, one says it's in case he needs to use the glass as a weapon, another says he's just being a jerk to the barman as he'd already started to pull it, and a fourth says it's just because that's how Carter ordered it in the novel. Nobody seems to know for certain, though. I'm hoping that maybe someone's seen an interview with Michael Caine or Ted Lewis and has the real answer.
