Scarface

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

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.

Trivia: All of the music on the "Grand Theft Auto 3" Flash FM radio station is heard in various scenes in Scarface. The DJ's name also happens to be Tony.

Trivia: When Michelle Pfeiffer was screen testing, she threw the broken plates at Al Pacino and cut his hand.

Trivia: Miriam Colon plays Al Pacino's mother in the movie, even though in real life she's only four years older than him.
