Continuity mistake: Manny is shot in the drug dealer's apartment at the beginning of the movie. He says the bullet went in and out. However, when he's in the bed with his girlfriend and his shirt is off, there is no bullet wound on his arm, or anywhere on his chest or torso.

Continuity mistake: As Tony chases Hector out of the hotel, a white handbag can be seen behind them on the pavement. Afterwards, once Tony shoots Hector, the bag is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Tony is in the refugee camp and he stabs the communist at the doorway, the camera focuses on the Cuban's face where he is standing upright staring straight ahead. The camera then changes to a rear view and the Cuban is suddenly in a hunched over position making for an awkward transition. (00:11:00)

Trivia: In the final scene when Tony's house is being raided, there is a moment where he attempts to grab a gun and then lets go immediately. What happened was that the gun was so hot, it actually burnt Al Pacino's (Tony) hand and he was unable to perform for about a week or two. That allowed director Brian DePalma to shoot the scenes of the shooters moving throughout the house.

Question: When Scarface shoots Frank, Mel says "you can't shoot a cop" and Tony says "who said you was a cop?" This is stated as though Tony wasn't supposed to know Mel was a cop, but did anyway. Though Tony already knew this as mentioned to Mel earlier; "How do I know you're the last cop I'm gonna have to grease?" Why would this dialog take place if Scarface already knew prior?

Answer: Montana replies "who said you were a cop" as sarcasm. Tony knows Mel is a police officer but insinuates that because he is shady and corrupt, Mel doesn't deserve the title. Tony sees Mel as another criminal, not as a police officer.
