- AFIS 100 Years 100 Cheers: #31
- Fake American: Cary Elwes plays Major Cabot Forbes. Justified as Forbes is a New Englander, about as close to Elwes' English accent as the U.S. will allow.
- Troubled Production: Despite their onscreen friendship, director Edward Zwick recalls that Matthew Broderick and Cary Elwes did not get along on set. Possibly related to the fact that most of Cary Elwes shot scenes were not included in released film.
