YMMV / The Wrong Man

  • Retroactive Recognition: Harry Dean Stanton makes his film debut as Department of Corrections Employee.
  • Values Dissonance: Nowadays the case against Manny would probably be thrown out of court, due to the police's flagrant violation of his Fifth Amendment rights, including forcing him to transcribe a note which ultimately incriminated him. Not to mention that the "show-ups" they conducted with witnesses completely tainted the lineup, which now must be observed by a suspect's attorney.
