Trivia / Black Rain

  • California Doubling: Because the production's work visa in Japan ran out, the climactic farm scenes were filmed in Napa Valley, California.
  • Same Language Dub: The Japanese dub of the film is notable for being one of the few ones when this trope is mostly avoided, and for understandable reasons: Normally in Japan, when a Japanese actor or actors participate in a foreign film speaking in Japanese (or whatever language they were speaking in the original film) and when that film is brought to Japan, the actors themselves reprise those roles again in the dubbed version. In this film, due of the deaths of Yusaku Matsuda (Sato) and Tomisaburo Wakayama (Sugai), their roles were voiced by different voice actors. Oddly enough, in the Fuji TV version of the film, Sato's voice remains unchanged from the original English version, while in the DVD release, he was dubbed instead.
