When Ray Liotta and Lorraine Bracco filmed the scene where Karen points a gun in Henry's face, during one take, Liotta threw Bracco off the bed, and the gun flew out of Bracco's hand and hit director of photography Michael Ballhaus in the head.
The fuck is that?
After Tommy kills Morrie and he and Frankie are discussing where to chop the body up, Morrie's chest rises and falls, as if he were alive and breathing.
A television version of the film was prepared by director Martin Scorsese, which retained a good portion of the film's graphic violence. It also retained much of the profanity, minus the F- and S-words, which were dubbed over. Scorsese did a televised introduction upon the film's network premiere.
