NOTES

powered by AFI

The four short stories listed above and other stories by Paul Cain serialized in Black Mask magazine were included in the novel Fast One. It is possible that additional stories, such as "The Dark" (Sep 1932) were used as a basis for this film, however only those listed above were credited in the record of Paramount Produced Properties. According to a script in the Paramount story files at the AMPAS Library, written in March 1933, Carole Lombard was considered for the role of Eleanor. Sam Bricker, the properties man, appeared in this film. According to the pressbook, a technical advisor was used to acquaint the actors with the "..details of the parlance, activities and manners of the gambling world." To maintain his anonymity, he was known only as "Mr. 100." Some scenes were shot in San Pedro, CA. At the time of this film, casinos operated legally off the coast of California outside a three-mile radius from the shore.
