Scene 37: [In an awful jumpcut... film damage, I think] We're suddenly in the bathroom with Jerry. He's turned on the spigot to cover the fact that he's actually going out the window and sneaking along the ledge.


Scene 38: Meanwhile, talkative Mugsy has been left alone at the card table, goofing around. Mugsy's card companion has vanished, but he insists that he beat him even though he's playing the card game completely alone at this point.

Scene 55: Rather than heading "uptown" to the FBI offices, Dickson leaves the city and is chased into the foothills of Oregon.

Extended Drive-Drive-Chase-Chase scene.


Commentary: But, I'm going to give Bernard B. Ray (oops, I mean Raymond K. Johnson) a little more credit for keeping the camera work dynamic with footage from a chase car, cutting between Dickson's and Carney's vehicles and generally making good use of the outdoors chase scene to show off that it isn't just in a studio with grips shaking the vehicle's bumpers and backprojection.

Although, I have to take points away from our foley-man who feels like we need tires squealing on dirt tracks. No - we really didn't.
