Joe Eszterhas originally titled the screenplay "Hearts of Fire". Columbia disliked the title and decided it had to be changed. They assigned a secretary at the studio to go through the script in an effort to come up with another title. The secretary found "jagged edge" in the description of the murder weapon: "a knife with a jagged edge". Eszterhas and director Richard Marquand would still get to use the original title when they collaborated again on 1987's Hearts of Fire (1987). See more »
