A young F.B.I. cadet must receive the help of an incarcerated and manipulative cannibal killer to help catch another serial killer, a madman who skins his victims.
Jodie Foster, Jonathan Demme, and Scott Glenn, and a few other cast and crew members did a great deal of research at the F.B.I. training facility in Quantico, Virginia. They studied under criminal profiling Agents, learned about firearms and Agent training, and sat in several classes.
Starling! Starling! Crawford wants to see you in his office.
Clarice Starling: Thank you, sir.
West Virginia State Police uniforms have been forest green since the early 1900's. Their vehicles are blue, with Old Gold and the State Seal on the door. The director asked the WV Department of Public Safety to use some State Police in the movie, but he didn't like the colors of their uniforms. When he asked them to change into the Brown uniforms, they refused and left the set.
After the Copyright notice and MPAA logo, a logo appears with the text "A Luta Continua". This is not a production company credit; instead, it's Portuguese for "The Struggle Continues" ("To be continued").
