* OlderThanTheyThink: The idea of Romeo [[spoiler: still being alive when Juliet wakes up and dying in her arms]] wasn't invented by this movie, but is also found in Italian versions of the story that predate Shakespeare's play, as well as at least two opera adaptations, Gounod's ''Roméo et Juliette'' and Bellini's ''I Capuletti e i Montecchi.''

* StarMakingRole: For Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Claire Danes, at least before ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' really pushed the former to superstardom.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Not only was Natalie Portman supposed to play Juliet before Claire Danes, but John Leguizamo wanted to play Mercutio, before being cast as Tybalt.
** Claire Danes and [=DiCaprio=] were going to be reunited in ''{{Film/Titanic}}'', but Danes was too tired after shooting, so the role went to Creator/KateWinslet instead.
