When Ness and the bailiff remove Frank Nitti from the courtroom, on account of Nitti wearing a concealed firearm, Nitti produces a permit in the form of a carte blanche (please extend to the holder of this card, Frank Nitti, all courtesies) signed by Chicago Mayor William Thompson the Mayor.
According to The Untouchables director Brian De Palma, it was Sir Sean Connery's idea to film the "blood oath" scene between Ness and Malone in a Catholic church. Originally, it was going to take place on the street (in the same scene that follows the church scene). Connery felt that a church would be the only "safe" place in Chicago where the two characters would make such a commitment to fight Capone.
