Secret Service agent Frank Horrigan (Clint Eastwood) couldn't save Kennedy, but he's determined not to let a clever assassin take out this president.
Robert De Niro was the first choice for the role of Mitch Leary, but he turned it down due to scheduling conflicts with A Bronx Tale (1993). Robert Duvall and Jack Nicholson were also considered before John Malkovich was cast.
Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, Frank, thank God. Thank God. I'm dead. I'm dead. I'm dead. I'm dead.
In the scene where the Secret Service counter-snipers attempt to get a site on Leary, it is reported that it is too dark for them to see inside the elevator. Secret Service counter-snipers are equipped with night-vision goggles to allow them to see targets through darkness.
In the hotel Frank watches TV and sees himself on the news as he captures the bell boy.
