Trivia

Directed by Dennis Hopper under the pseudonym "Alan Smithee", which is a common Hollywood pseudonym used by any director who is too unhappy with the finished film to put his real name on it.
Vestron Pictures were unhappy with director Dennis Hopper's original 180 minutes cut of the film and re-edited it without his knowledge. Hopper was so enraged he sued the company, but they had already gone bankrupt. He nevertheless insisted on the anonymous Alan Smithee credit.
Though uncredited, the script was rewritten by Alex Cox and Tod Davies.
Bob Dylan has a small cameo as the artist with a chainsaw and an orange hard hat.
