Trivia

Originally, Keyser Soze was supposed to have the name Keyser Sume, named after Christopher McQuarrie's old boss. He allowed his old boss to read the script, and decided he did not want to be associated with an inherently evil villain, so requested a change be made.


Quotes

Keyser Soze: How you doing Keaton?
Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.


Goofs

During the line-up scene, as the suspects enter the line-up booth, a microphone can be seen above Hockney's position. This is a standard feature of police line-up booths. (In some releases of the movie this is not visible because the scene has been cropped vertically to change its aspect ratio.)


Crazy Credits

The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."


Alternate Versions

When Redfoot hits McMannus with his cigarette, there is a reaction shot of Verbal looking surprised and scared. In the Special Edition it is changed to a reaction shot of Fenster.
