Edward Scissorhands

In the scene where Edward is being driven into town, the car passes a house with children playing on a slip 'n' slide on the front lawn. The boy that is seen running and sliding was future Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter.

In the scene where Peg Boggs comes into the mansion for the first time, she backs up to the staircase and she looks around for a few moments. If you look carefully at the wall at the top of the stairs in the right-top corner, you'll see an odd spikey shaped shadow. Listen carefully and you'll hear snipping of scissors and the shadow will move. It is Edward looking down to see who the stranger to his house is.

Johnny Depp seems to get his look for Edward Scissorhands from the classic Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari. Watch the original version of Dr. Caligari and notice how much the look and mannerisms of the somnambulist Cesare resemble Edward. The hair, the eyes, Even the makeup is similar.

In the scene where Peg Boggs comes into the mansion she backs up to the base of the staircase. Right behind her, you'll see a statue which looks like the Oogie Boogie man in The Nightmare Before Christmas, released a few years later.

This role of Inventor played by Vincent Price would be his very last in a motion picture. Shortly after narrating and starring in a couple of television shows and a voice-over for an animated film, he passed away in 1993.

Johnny Depp only speaks 169 words in the entire film.

The neighborhood in which the film takes place is a real development in Southern Florida. During filming, the residents of the development stayed in a local motel. While the homes were repainted by the film crew to give the neighborhood the creepy pastel look, the insides were left as they were.

In an interview, Tim Burton, who directed the movie, told the interviewer that it was based upon his own life growing up in Burbank, CA as a teen seen as different from the others.

Mistakes

At the end of the film, we see Edward carving ice sculptures in his mansion. How did he get the ice up there? First of all, it takes place in a warm climate and I didn't see a freezer up there in the castle. He couldn't have gotten ice from town because firstly he had scissors for hands and couldn't have gripped the ice. And, even if by some miracle he could, he wouldn't be able to buy any from town because everyone in town but Kim was convinced that Edward was a killer, so they wouldn't have let him in their shop without calling the police. And Kim didn't bring it to him because she told her granddaughter in the end that she never saw him again after that night. So where did he get that ice?
