When Verbal is thinking back on his time with Keaton towards the end of the film, there is a shot of Keaton answering the door at Edie's apartment. This echoes a similar shot from the movie Miller's Crossing, which Gabriek Byrne also starred in.
How you doing Keaton?
Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.
When McManus lights the "finest taxi service" on fire, he drops the lighter, and the sky-view of the car shows fires starting on three separate places on top of the car: the hood, roof, and trunk.
The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."
