Robert Kraft, the co-screenwriter of the film was a singer/songwriter and a personal friend of Bruce Willis. He co-produced and wrote a few tracks featured on the soundtrack album including "Hawk Swing". Kraft would eventually become the head of music department at Twentieth Century-Fox soon after in the mid to late 1990's holding that position for a good ten years or more. See more »
When Hudson Hawk gets out of the crate, the packing peanuts stuck to his face move around and change shape. One of them is behind his ear when he looks out the window at the Coliseum. In the adjoining scene when the Butler says, "Welcome to Rome," Hawk turns around and the Styrofoam piece behind his ear isn't there. See more »
Long ago, the Duke of Milan commissioned a little known artist to erect a Mammoth statue of a horse. The time was 1481... The artist was Leonardo da Vinci... The guy on the donkey's just a guy on a donkey.

The German VHS version contains several more lines of dialog, mostly from characters off-screen to make scenes funny in German. For example: When Hudson Hawk falls into the chair after he jumps from the roof of the auction house, the Butler says he collects Concorde tickets because once you get 100 "you get a stewardess for free" and Antony Mario adds that he would prefer the pilot.

Hudson Hawk has cult movie written all over it. Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello have a blast making robberies while singing show tunes. It put me in the spirit of the movie and I enjoyed myself. Everybody in the cast overacts but that didn't bother me at all. This is the kind of movie that after years pass will be considered a cult classic. Check out Hudson Hawk if you want to have a good time. Because like all the best films, you have to suspend your belief in reality to make it work and this movie is fantasy on a whole new level.
