R | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
A young F.B.I. cadet must receive the help of an incarcerated and manipulative cannibal killer to help catch another serial killer, a madman who skins his victims.
Ed Harris turned down the role of Jack Crawford, because he didn't find the role interesting, and would rather have played Hannibal Lecter. He partially got his wish when he played a jailed serial killer, who assists in solving a murder in Just Cause (1995).
Starling! Starling! Crawford wants to see you in his office.
Clarice Starling: Thank you, sir.
During Lector's escape, the "swat" team arrives and jumps out of the police car at the courthouse with their Ithica 37 shotguns. All of them are shown chambering their rounds except the the officer on the right, who pulls back again on the fore stock and asks "ready?" That should've ejected a shell and left the gun unloaded.
There is a 'Moth Wrangler/Make-Up' listed in the crew list.
