Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the film, when Cole saves Campbell from falling, they then proceed to swing down the rope, and if you look closely, you can see a crewmember's arm sticking out of a window holding a piece of equipment attached to the rope, making sure that they don't swing out too much.

Visible crew/equipment: During a scene where Steven Seagal dives over a wall to escape an exploding vehicle, the view changes to overhead and you can see the spotter there to make sure that Steven Seagal hits his mark.

Jack Cole: You know, when you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, I think you're probably happy. Pleased at what you see. And that disturbs me. So I'm gonna take it on as my responsibility to make sure that you never get to look in the mirror again.
Donald Cunningham: I woke up happy, I'm goin' to bed happy. 'Cause you're gonna be dead.

More quotes from The Glimmer Man

Trivia: Steven Seagal had some sort-of religious "breakthrough" before filming began and decided he didn't want to kill any villains in the movie. This caused some friction on the first day, when he was set to film a scene where he killed Stephen Tobolowsky. Tobolowsky, knowing how spiritual Seagal was, ended up convincing Seagal that killing his character was the right thing to do, as it would allow his character to be redeemed and reborn in a new body through reincarnation. The scene was filmed as it was scripted. Later, however, Tobolowsky got a call from the director, who informed him that Seagal kept improvising lines implying that Tobolowsky survived. Tobolowsky ended up having to come back out and record some wonky dialog of his character screaming "Finish me off!" to imply he survived and appease Seagal. In the end, the lines weren't used and Seagal's improvisations were simply cut out, so Tobolowsky is killed off as was originally planned.
