* CreatorPreferredAdaptation: Creator/PhilipKDick felt that the film (at least, the director's cut, not the butchered theatrical version) was superior to its source material, his novel ''Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep'', and was amazed at how the book was "escalated into such stunning dimensions." The fact that he churned out seventy pages of manuscript a day while flying high on meth just to pay his bills probably had something to do with it.

* AccidentallyAccurate: When Batty and Tyrell are arguing about how to prolong a Replicant's lifespan, Batty mentions something called "EMS". Tyrell says they already tried "Ethyl methanesulfonate" unsuccessfully. Ethyl methanesulfonate ''is'' an actual organic compound with mutagenic qualities, used in genetics. The scriptwriter later admitted he did no research for the conversation and the mention of a real compound in the TechnoBabble was coincidental.

** Deckard's whiskey glasses and bottle, trenchcoat and even the tiles in his apartment have been made into real (albeit [[CrackIsCheaper insanely expensive)]] products. Even the [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/gear/d163/ neon light umbrellas]] are available from Thinkgeek (albeit the Thinkgeek versions are more practical LED/fiber-optic rather then neon tubes).

* ExecutiveMeddling: The ending in the original movie was changed by higher-ups due to its ambiguity, and narration was added to help dispel the ambiguity evident in most of the movie itself. The original ending has been restored and the narration deleted in the DirectorsCut.
