Question: When being questioned by police at the beginning, Tony says he did time for 'buying dollars'. Does this mean he traded for US dollars, and if he did, what did he hand over in exchange?
Question: In the scene where Scarface shoots Frank and then Mel, right before he shoots Mel, The dialog goes as follows: Mel- you can't shoot a cop. Tony- Who said you were a cop? Mel- Wait a minute, I can fix this.This is said as though Tony wasn't supposed to know Mel was a cop, but did anyway. Even though Tony already knew this as evidenced by the fact that Tony said to Mel earlier, "How do I know you're the last pig I'm going to have to grease?" Why would this dialog take place if Scarface already knew?
Question: I've had arguments with one of my friends about this line in the film when Scarface says "the only thing in this world that gives orders is balls", my friend thinks he says "the only thing in this world that gives orders is BOSS" (which wouldn't make much sense). What does he say, balls or boss?dan coakley..
Question: Does anyone know the approximate timeline of the movie? I noticed shortly after Tony kills Frank (I think it was the scene when he meets with his lawyer), he and Manny walk near a billboard advertising the "all-new 1984 Corvette". The '84 Corvette went into production in March 1983, so I don't want to call it a mistake in case it is factually correct.
