NOTES

powered by AFI

The final sequence of The Hoodlum, in which "Johnny Lubeck" holds his brother "Vincent Lubeck" at gunpoint while driving to the city dump, was also shown under the opening credits. An February 8, 1951 Hollywood Reporter article states that Lawrence Tierney's younger brother, Scott Brady, was originally signed for the lead role, but was involved in a lawsuit with Eagle-Lion over his contract; the outcome of the suit is unknown. According to a March 16, 1951 Hollywood Reporter article, Edward Tierney was also Lawrence Tierney's brother and, as also noted in the article, The Hoodlum marked his film debut. A March 23, 1951 Hollywood Reporter article adds Michael Whalen, Raymond Bond, William Cornell, Ray Singer, Bert Davidson and Joe Greene to the cast, however, their appearance in the film has not been confirmed.
