In Miami in 1980, a determined Cuban immigrant takes over a drug cartel and succumbs to greed.
The film stayed number one at the British box-office for three consecutive weeks from February 11, 1984 until March 3, 1984 and became the 15th highest-grossing film in Britain in 1984.
...los que no se adapten... al esfuerzo y al heroísmo de una revolución... ¡No los queremos! ¡No los necesitamos!
In the money laundering scene, when the undercover cops are arresting Tony, he is almost smoking his cigar. When he is against the wall there is no cigar in his hands.
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.
To get a 16 rating in West Germany, most of the violence and profanity were toned down.
£33,362 (UK) (5 February 1984)
