Scarface

Scarface (1983)

Visible crew/equipment: When the first deal goes wrong and the man with the chainsaw jumps out the window you can clearly see him land on a grey crash mat because it lifts up at the corners.

Continuity mistake: When Tony shoots Manny after he finds out that he has been with Gina, she runs to hold his bloody body, in turn getting blood on her robe. A few scenes later, when Gina comes into Tony's office, wearing the same robe, it is perfectly clean and there is no sign of any blood.

Continuity mistake: Tony and Omar Suarez go down to Bolivia to meet with Mr. Sosa. After Omar has an accident from the chopper,the binoculars are put down on the table on end. Next shot, they lay flat. Next shot, on end again. And so on through out the scene.

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.

More quotes from Scarface


Question: Can anyone please tell me what Tony says to Rebenga as he is stabbing him in the prison camp? It sort of sounds like, "I'm gonna pay you f***." But that doesn't make sense.

Chosen answer: He said, "From a friend you fu**ed."

Question: Was the double cross with the chainsaw scene a set up by F.Murray Abraham? Or was it a genuine deal and did he just suspect it may be dangerous, and sent Tony because he annoyed him?

Chosen answer: While it is never really mentioned I think it is a safe bet that it was a double cross. F. Murray Abraham was seen later in the film to be an informant and killed because of it.

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?

Chosen 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.
