* EnforcedMethodActing: While shooting the scene where [[spoiler: a dying Mozart dictates the Requiem to Salieri]], Tom Hulce deliberately skipped lines so as to make it seem [[spoiler: Salieri could not understand what he was being dictated]].



* ThrowItIn: In the scene when Mozart is dictating the Requiem to Salieri, the audio playback suffered technical difficulties; however, since Mozart is supposed to be delirious with fever, Hulce played his reactions in character and this made it into the final cuts.
** EnforcedMethodActing: Hulce also deliberately skipped lines so as to make it seem [[spoiler: Salieri could not understand what he was being dictated]].



*** A little bit of a tangent, but interesting: When auditioning to voice [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries the Joker]], he simply reprised his Mozart laugh from when he played the composer on Broadway. It worked.

** KennethBranagh, Tim Curry and Mel Gibson were among those rejected for the part of Mozart.
** Meg Tilly was originally supposed to play Mozart's wife but she injured her leg the day before filming and the part had to be recast. Director [[Creator/MilosForman Miloš Forman]] did later hire her again for a another period film set in the 18th century, ''Valmont'' (based on the novel ''Literature/DangerousLiaisons'').
