The most intricate and ambitious scenes filmed in New York City found the film company closing the outbound side of the Brooklyn Bridge for five nights, according to director Michael Lehmann on his audio commentary. From 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., the filmmakers created their own rush hour, with Bruce Willis weaving in and out of treacherous, but painstakingly choreographed, traffic on an out-of-control hospital gurney, which was motorized and controllable and not-freewheeling.
Long ago, the Duke of Milan commissioned a little known artist to erect a Mammoth statue of a horse. The time was 1481... The artist was Leonardo da Vinci... The guy on the donkey's just a guy on a donkey.
As Hawk is riding the gurney behind the ambulance, the plastic IV bag on the gurney gets shot, but you hear glass shattering, as if the bag were an old-fashioned glass bottle. In a subsequent shot, the IV bag is intact again.
Entire subplot of Eddie's dead pet monkey Little Eddie. Eddie puts a photo of the monkey on Kaplan's head and throws him off the castle; the photo is still visible in the final cut just as he goes over the cliff on the limo.
