Trivia: The "Best Make-Up" Academy Award was created after the outcry that this film didn't receive an award for make-up (which was a special award at the time).
Trivia: While on the set for Michael Cimino's "Heaven's Gate", Hurt was so bored on set because of Cimino's attention to detail and slow film making that he went back to Britain, made The Elephant Man, and came back to shoot scenes for Heaven's Gate. For The Elephant Man, he won a BAFTA and was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe; Heaven's Gate, meanwhile, is considered by some to be one of the worst films ever made.
