While an excellent movie, IMO, overall, the scene in 1950 with the doublestack container train passing by overhead cracked me up pretty good. Dave

In one of the MGM "formula" 1930's gangster films c.1970 (can't remember whether it was "Dillinger" or "A Bullet for Pretty Boy"), the protagonist is shown climbing onto a cushion-underframe MoPac boxcar that would have taken another thrity years to evolve.

For a correct treatment of the same subject, let's try the Warner/James Dean version of "East of Eden" (1955). Shot on a set in front of a screen, obviously, but they got the rolling stock right.
