A young FBI cadet must receive the help of an incarcerated and manipulative cannibal killer to help catch another serial killer, a madman who skins his victims.
When Clarice visits Dr Chilton after the autopsy, he calls her (what sounds like) 'Scully' instead of Starling. Agent Scully in the X Files is based on the character of Clarice.
Starling! Starling! Crawford wants to see you in his office.
Clarice Starling: Thank you, sir.
When Clarice is interviewing Lecter, a padlock on his cell door goes from locked to unlocked between scenes.
The producers wish to thank Adele, Bobby and the rest of the gang at Bufa's.
The scene where Miggs throws sperm at Clarice is shown from the different angle in the TV network version, so the audience can't really see what Miggs is throwing.
