It's worth mentioning here that Straight Time is based on the book of the same name by former FBI most wanted man-turned cult icon Edward Bunker, and the book in turn was based on his real life exploits. Bunker is probably known to most people as the short-lived, Souther Drawl-having Mr. Blue in Quentin Tarantino's ultra-violent gangster masterpiece "Reservoir Dogs."
