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. (00:27:55)
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. (02:27:50 - 02:30:00)
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. (01:07:20)
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: 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.
Tony Montana: I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.
Tony Montana: In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.
Tony Montana: I kill a communist for fun, but for a green card, I gonna carve him up real nice.
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.
Question: When Scarface shoots Frank, Mel says "you can't shoot a cop" and Tony says "who said you was a cop?" This is stated as though Tony wasn't supposed to know Mel was a cop, but did anyway. Though Tony already knew this as mentioned to Mel earlier; "How do I know you're the last cop I'm gonna have to grease?" Why would this dialog take place if Scarface already knew prior?
