Trivia

The roller coaster scene was filmed on and around the Viper at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. The Viper is still in operation as of 2009. It has since been permanently closed.


Quotes

Clarence Worley: In Jailhouse Rock he was everything rockabilly's about. I mean, he is rockabilly. Mean, surly, nasty, rude. In that movie he couldn't give a fuck about nothing except rockin' and rollin', living fast, dying young and leaving a good-looking corpse.


Goofs

The comic book that Clarence shows Alabama is "Sleepwalker #8," and has nothing to do with a ring, a ship, or a man named Nick, which is the plot that Clarence explains to Alabama.


Alternate Versions

The US theatrical version runs 118 minutes and was heavily cut for violence in order to receive an R-rating. This version was released to US theaters in 1993 and as a rental VHS in the US in 1994. It still occasionally shows up on premium cable and streaming services. The Director's Cut (also known as the 'Unrated' edition) runs 121 minutes and is the only version that has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray worldwide, initially appearing as a buy-only VHS and laserdisc in the US. The Director's Cut changes the following: -The death of Big Don and his dealer is more violent. -Drexl beating up Clarence and the subsequent shoot-out in Drexl's club are longer. -The extremely brutal fight between Virgil and Alabama is over a full minute longer and ends with Alabama beating Virgil's body over the head repeatedly with the butt of the shotgun. -The final shootout in the hotel room is longer and bloodier. -Instead of being killed by a random mafioso, Nicky is shot by Alabama in the Director's Cut.
