About half way through the film there's a brief high-speed car chase--two cops in an unmarked '54 Ford chase the fugitive who's driving a '46 or '47 Packard. The picture was made in '54 so the Ford is new and the Packard is at least 7 years old, but both are in good shape. A couple of times there is a close look through the windows at the drivers of "both cars." Actually the cops and the fugitive are shown in the seat of the same beat-up car with dents in the metal window frames, a shabby cloth head liner and broken weather stripping around door edges. The studio must have had a stationary car that "rocked" to resemble the movements of a real car speeding over bumps and around curves, which they used for both the cops and the fugitive. See more
At the very end, when Farnham is leaning wounded against the trailer, he says he recognizes the voice of a police officer as being the voice of the "partner", the mysterious man who called to get the money back. However, it is Bruner, and not Farnham, who had him on the phone. Farnham would not be able to recognize his voice. See more
