Scarface

Trivia: The Playstation 2/PC game "Grand Theft Auto - Vice City" by Rockstar Games, is modeled exactly after the movie Scarface; the mansion, the cars, the environment, buildings, the Babylon Club (in the game it's called the Malibu Club), even some of the game scenarios are similar (for instance, the take over the mansion and the chainsaw scene).

Trivia: When Tony meets with his lawyer after being caught, the lawyer states that he can get Tony acquitted from the drugs charges, but he will get sent to jail for tax evasion. Al Capone - the real life "Scarface" - was convicted and sent to prison for this very same crime.

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.
