Jump to: Cameo (1)
Vic Noto (Bronson) was cast a day before principal photography commenced(less than 12 hours) "I didn't know what the hell I was doing," he said, "nor did I EVER understand who Bronson was. I did scene by scene not even knowing what the movie was about. I didn't read the Script until three months AFTER I was wrapped. I STILL don't know who Bronson was".

Miriam Zucker was brutally attacked by thugs in a New York City subway station several years before making this film. The attack left her partially deaf and with a large scar on her scalp. The scene where her character is attacked and gang-raped by homeless men in the junkyard brought back the feelings of fear and dread she felt during the incident.

The producers were unsuccessful in getting product sponsorship for the film. The only company that was interested was the manufacturer of Drakes Cakes, which would send the cast and crew a box of snacks every week. By the end of the three-month shoot, everyone had eaten enough of the snacks that when it came time to make the scene where the fat bum explodes, the fake stomach was filled with boxes and boxes of Drakes Cakes.

Vic Noto who played BRONSON improvised a line of dialogue a memorable one at that:"Air Support". He came up with it following a volley of "Cut(s)" that were made by the sound technician after picking up many Commercial jets passing by from Kennedy and Laguardia airports. Noto being frustrated, approached director Jim Muro and told him to:" do another take,I'll stay in Character and we can all go to chow and out of this damn heat".The Cameraman later that day shot one of the Planes and it became an insert,
