Did You Know?

Trivia:
Sir Anthony Hopkins chose a moldy, mildewy storage room at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge, California to film his bedroom dream sequence, because he didn't have to dress the walls to look moldy and mildewy. He also used the Lodge Room as a soundstage for a television news insert for a later bar scene, and filmed the front of the Lodge as an emergency room entrance for his ambulance rush sequence. He signed autographs, posed for pictures, and used one of the Lodge members, and his wife in the exterior scene.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): While Matt Dobbs and Geek are discussing Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) during the diner scene, they repeatedly refer to the female lead as "Donna Wynter". The actress's name was in fact Dana WynterSee more »
