Did You Know?


This movie was going to be made in 1969 with Robert Redford as Logan, and there was to be a re-adaptation of the source novel by Warner Brothers (which owns the rights to this movie) with Ryan Gosling as Logan.


Logan: Wake up.
Francis: Logan, you are here. I couldn't believe it when they told me. What are you doing?
Logan: Logan 6. Well it's not everyday that they authorize a new sandman. I tell you Francis,
Logan: that's him.
Francis: Well maybe, maybe not. What does it matter? Anyway, he ...
Francis: ...


When Logan and Francis terminate the first runner near the start of the movie and the "clean up crew" comes to spray/disintegrate the body, the shadow of the wires that hold up the disintegration unit are visible on the wall.

Alternate Versions

A bootleg audio recording exists of the May 1976 sneak preview in San Diego, suggesting that the preview cut ran approximately 130 minutes. In addition to the inclusion of the scene after the titles where Francis kills a runner who falls into a pool to applause from onlookers, it includes:

  • A longer exchange in the Nursery.
  • A longer Carousel sequence, with no overdubbed computer voice announcing Last Day.
  • Slightly longer scenes between Logan and Jessica, including one where Jessica asks if Logan thinks "flame-out" is the ultimate kill. Another cut bit includes Logan explaining the danger of cubs "flying on Muscle," an unauthorized drug that "speeds up the reflexes" but is "no good for anyone over 13; shake you and me to pieces."
  • A brief snip where Francis hears Logan's page to Cathedral and announces he will go to help him.
  • A longer introduction to Holly, who announces that she is "Holly 13" and that "in ancient times, my number was unlucky."
  • A longer Sex Shop sequence.
  • There is a reference in Box's dialogue to the ice sculpture existing in the preview print because he says "What a pair! I'd like to sculpt you...Let me sculpt you and I'll show you where the others have gone...over there, arms 'round each other...nude, of course..." The dialogue between Logan and Jessica as they pose also sheds light on the plot hole of why Logan signaled the Sandmen to the Runners' hideout. Logan admits that he tried to send her back because he was going to return to the city all along. "That was the plan. I'd been ordered to find out where the Runners had gone and destroy it. That's why I brought in the Sandmen that killed them." He expresses remorse and confusion at his change of heart.
