Billy Crystal plays a Hollywood agent who stumbles upon Max, a giant living in Romania, and tries to get him into the movies.
Billy Crystal originally wanted to play the role of the titular "Giant," but was convinced by producers that he would be better as Sammy Kamin.
I don't like heights. This is why I stopped growing at fifth grade.
When Sam and Max are at the bus station to get tickets to Las Vegas and argue over where to go, they leave the ticket office to make a call but never buy the ticket. In the next scene they are on the bus.
