- The casting director rejected Faye Dunaway, telling her she wasn't pretty enough for movies and should stick to theater.
- In the fight scene where Marlon Brado's character gets beaten up, for extra realism the director instructed the characters to punch Brando in extremely slow motion and actually connect with Brando's body. Due to the slow speed of the punches, Brando was not harmed at all. The scene was then processed at normal speed and the punches look as though they are causing serious damage to Brando.
