TRIVIA: Sam Raimi originally wanted to adapt and direct this film, but was denied the rights to it.

Tim Curry and Sir Ian McKellen previously appeared together on stage in Amadeus, as the title character and as Salieri, respectively.

The billboard of the "Smoking man" is a parody of a real one that actually blew "smoke" rings. The original was for Camel cigarettes, whose motto was "I'd walk a mile for a Camel!" The "Llama" cigarette motto parodies this with "I'd climb a mountain for a Llama!"

Bob Kane had cited The Shadow as a major influence behind Batman.

Peter Boyle plays a Taxi Driver. He also played a Taxi Driver in "Taxi Driver", 1976.
