Trivia

At 54, Dustin Hoffman was more than 20 years older than the real Dutch Schultz was when he was killed.
Then Disney head Jeffrey Katzenberg opted to produce this gangster epic instead of Warren Beatty's Bugsy (1991) as he figured Beatty's film was too expensive at $40 million. This movie ultimately came in at $50 million and grossed a mere $15 million on its American release.
To date, remains one of the most accurate recreations of the Chophouse Massacre that took the life of Arthur "Dutch Schultz" Fleggenheimer and several of his men.
Final film for cinematographer Néstor Almendros.
Robin Wright was considered for the role of Drew Preston.
