** Creator/JamesCoburn's name was kicked around as an early possibility to play Nathan Bryce, but he would've been way too expensive.

* ReclusiveArtist: Newton definitely counts--he rarely goes out in public and leaves the day to day operations of the company to Farnsworth. {{Justified}} as he wants to escape detection ("My life is not secret, but it is private.").

** In his memoir ''The World is Ever Changing'', Creator/NicolasRoeg says he was seriously thinking about hiring "an American non-actor" to play Newton before the man in question finally decided not to do it. Roeg doesn't mention his name, but the clues he gives (a doctor who also was a writer, plus a film director, and who stood nearly 7' tall) basically could only be describing Creator/MichaelCrichton.

** Bowie originally was tapped to write the score and worked on it with Paul Buckmaster. For various reasons, it wasn't used and has never been formally released, though a backwards bass part on ''Low'''s "Subterraneans" was taken from what they worked on.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: For TheSeventies.

to:

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: For TheSeventies.The story supposedly takes place over several decades, but the fashions, technology and virtually everything else remain pure 1970s. This isn't helped by the fact that WeAreAsMayflies to an AlienAmongUs hero who isn't physically aging, meaning that only the appearances of the supporting characters clue us into the passage of time. On top of that, just the fact that Music/DavidBowie plays an alien clearly dates it as in the decade of his Ziggy Stardust sci-fi glam phase (by the time the film was shot in 1975, he had already moved on from that persona and sound).
