Director Norman Jewison showed the film uncompleted at the 1999 Toronto International Film Festival, without credits or proper color. He had been working on the movie the night before it was shown, and submitted it to the festival with the film still splinted together in hundreds of pieces. Before showing the movie he said to the eager audience, "I'm so nervous that the splints may fall apart."
Ladies and gentlemen, this fine young fighter will be right here in Pittsburg on the boxing cog, this Monday night.
Credits at the end of movie state that Rubin Carter is the only boxer to have received an honorary championship title belt from the World Boxing Council in 1993. This is incorrect as the boxer Joey Giardello also received an honorary championship belt at the same banquet in Las Vegas.
