Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/WoodyAllen initially intended to end the movie with him emerging from a riot with his face darkened from soot; the black rioters would then mistakenly claim him as one of their own. As with ''Film/TakeTheMoneyAndRun'', Allen's editor, Ralph Rosenblum, convinced him to go with an ending more organic to the story that came before it.

Added DiffLines:

* AccidentallyCorrectWriting: During the trial UsefulNotes/JEdgarHoover testifies, disguised as a black woman. While it was meant here as a joke, it would be revealed to the world after he died that Hoover liked to wear women's clothes, something that no one at the time of the movie would have ever believed.


Added DiffLines:

* EnforcedMethodActing: During the training montage when Fielding is learning how to throw a hand grenade, the pin in his hand explodes after he throws the grenade. The reaction by Creator/WoodyAllen is real as he was slightly singed by the incendiary device hidden in his hand, but Woody decided against doing the scene again and left it in the film as is.


Added DiffLines:

* SerendipityWritesThePlot: The musicians in the dinner scene at General Vargas' house were actually to be playing instruments, but the rented instruments hadn't arrived, and rather than wait, Creator/WoodyAllen decided the miming would fit with the tone of the film.
