* DoingItForTheArt: Nigel Hawthorne, inexperienced in cinema, took the role of Cocteau to prove that he had screen presence for the producers of ''Film/TheMadnessOfKingGeorge''. Hawthorne wanted to reprise the stage role for the movie version. As it transpired this was unnecessary as Hawthorne was the producers' automatic choice for the lead.

** Lenina Huxley was originally revealed to be John Spartan's daughter. Another draft of the script was for Spartan to have a daughter (named Katie Spartan) be a resident of the underground city and one of Friendly's Scraps. During the shootout in the Wasteland, the woman Spartan was protecting was Spartan's daughter, and she would later appear at the end, alongside Friendly.

** This was one of the first movies to show off Wesley Snipes' martial arts skills. Much like Creator/BruceLee, he would have to slow down his moves so they would actually show up on camera.
