Andrea Passafiume at the TCMDb Turner Classics Movie website states: "During the course of filming, Warren Beatty
suffered a serious injury during a particular scene involving a train. According to Peter Biskind
[in his book 'Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America' (2010)], Beatty was nearly killed when he slipped from the train and fell onto the tracks below, leaving barely enough time to move out of the way of an oncoming freight train. Beatty's ankle was badly hurt as a result of the accident, and his recovery delayed the production two full days". See more
It appears that there was an error in Sarge's calculation of how much the Candy Man's heroin-filled baseballs were worth: if "one baseball is worth $19,000, and the Candy Man has prepared 24 of them", then $19,000 multiplied by 24 is only $456,000, not $470,000. Each baseball would have to be worth $19,583.33&1/3 for 24 balls to be worth $470,000. See more
