    Supposedly Michael Mann did an early version of the script that was never used. His research into prison at the time presumably made its way into “The Jericho Mile”.

    I haven’t read the book, but I’ve heard the criminals came across as more competent there. Supposedly, Grosbard decided that if they kept getting locked up they were probably less slick than Bunker portrayed them.

    Yeah I heard that about Michael Mann, still need to see The Jericho Mile, I liked L.A. Takedown so it stands to reason that Jericho would hold up too.

    I started reading No Beast So Fierce, it’s pretty intense, he’s a good writer but you can tell they definitely softened him up for Straight Time.

    Thanks for Reading!
