* TroubledProduction: One For a film now considered a sci-fi classic, it's creation was a difficult process: ** The original screenwriter, Hampton Fancher, was eventually distanced from his script for being too protective, and David Peoples created the script that eventually filmed. ** A critical financier dropped at at the eleventh hour, leading to some desperate deals shortly before production began. ** Harrison Ford often went between impatient and bored during production. ** Sean Young was cast by Scott for her Ava Gardner-esque looks, although many preferred another actress, Nina Axelrod. Young was unknown and also inexperienced, which seemed at times to annoy Harrison Ford. ** Scott made comments during the shoot that he preferred working with UK crews (as he did with ''Alien'') which annoyed the mostly American crew. ** Scott, coming from advertising and by his own admittance very controlling over visuals, made Art Director David Snyder's position practically moot. ** The Director of Photography, Jordan Cronenwith, suffered from Parkinson's disease and during the shoot was very weak and worked in a great deal of pain. ** Scott took multiple takes for seemingly innocuous scenes, leading one to wonder if he was really looking for the right look, or just infuriating his producers. ** Test screenings were sharply divided over the tone of the most (in)famous film.

* ScienceMarchesOn: Tyrell's explanation to Roy for why the DNA of a mature replicant can't be altered effectively doesn't stand up to modern understanding of genetics. Then again, this might be intentional, as the script hints that Tyrell may be lying about there being no possibility of lifting the lifespan limitation.

** RobertMitchum was reportedly considered for the role of Deckard at one point as a shout out to his own background in film noir thrillers, but declined the role - which is just as well as he would have been too old for the part anyway.

* TheProductionCurse: ''Blade Runner'' provides something of a variation on the theme: it suffered a similar curse, but instead of cast and crew members, it was the sponsors that got hit.
