It's the early days of the F.B.I. - federal agents working for the Department of Justice. Though they've got limited powers - they don't carry weapons and have to get local police approval for arrests - that doesn't stop fresh Law School grad Eddie Buchanan from joining up, and he encourages his for…

- In this film, which was made after one of the many "censorship" reforms, the gangsters are never seen using the common gangster weapon: the Thompson Sub-Machine Gun. In an effort to curb the violence in movies, the new "production codes" forbade the use of the weapon by gangsters on camera for fear that it would corrupt the youth of America (a fact explained in the 一世之雄 (1938) DVD documentary). This is especially evident during the lodge shootout. All of the cops and FBI agents have Tommy guns, 12-gauge pump shotguns and automatic pistols, while the gangsters only have revolvers and lever-action rifles.
- J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, personally approved the script for this movie. He even assigned FBI agents to monitor its production and ensure that it was accurate in every detail. When it grossed over $1,000,000 (an astronomical sum for a film in 1935), he was extremely pleased. There were two famous federal law enforcement agencies in the early part of the 20th century. They were the "G-Men" of the FBI, who worked for the Justice Department, and the "T-Men" who worked for the Treasury Department. Hoover was intensely interested in his "G-Men" winning the publicity and popularity rivalry. This movie certainly helped!
- When Warner Brothers re-released 'G' MEN to theaters in 1948, a new opening scene was added to explain that the 1935 movie did not reflect the FBI of the late 1940s. David Brian plays an FBI official addressing a group of new agent-recruits (among them Douglas Kennedy), for whom the old movie will be a history lesson. TCM's print of 'G' MEN includes this scene.
