Scarface has a great storyline, brutal violence as well as having Al Pacino at one of his finest roles. Scarface is one of the best gangster dramas!

Trivia

In the final shootout sequence, Al Pacino grabs the gun by the barrel. Although only blanks were used, his hand was badly burned, and production had to be shut down for a few weeks. The production used that time to film the final gun battle sequence from numerous angles using numerous cameras.


Quotes

Fidel Castro: ...los que no se adapten... al esfuerzo y al heroísmo de una revolución... ¡No los queremos! ¡No los necesitamos!


Goofs

When Tony and the guys are following the white car outside the United Nations building to blow it up remotely, there are two beer cans and two food containers on the dashboard of their car. In the exterior shots of Tony and the guys in the car, the beer can closest to Tony is partially crumbled. But in the interior shots of Tony's point of view, the crumbled beer can is perfectly straight and not crumbed. The beer can is crumbled in the exterior shots and undamaged in the interior shots.


Crazy Credits

SCARFACE is a fictional account of the activities of a small group of ruthless criminals. The characters do not represent the Cuban-American Community, and it would be erroneous and unfair to suggest that they do. The vast majority of Cuban-Americans have demonstrated a dedication, vitality, and enterprise that has enriched the American scene.


Alternate Versions

ABC edited 32 minutes from this film for its 1987 network television premiere.
