Trivia / Into the Night

  • Actor Allusion: Jeff Goldblum often mentions a dislike of snakes in his roles. Here though, after Diana she can't stand them, he says "Right now a snake would be reassuring."
    • When he drives away in Jack's car, he says "Banzai."
  • Descended Creator: Although John Landis often makes cameo appearances in his films, his large role came about through necessity: the Persian actors playing the rest of the four bad guys were unfamiliar with the slapstick tradition, and Landis found it easier to direct them through it if he led by example.
  • Technology Marches On: Even the uber-rich didn't bother with cellphones in 1985.
