Trivia / Red Heat

  • Dyeing for Your Art: Arnold lost and Belushi gained weight for their roles.
  • Fake Russian: Arnold, and some of his "Soviet" co-workers as well.
  • In Memoriam: The film is dedicated to its stunt coordinator, Bennie E. Dobbins, who died from a heart attack on the set.
  • Market-Based Title: The film's title was changed to character-centric Danko in Italy (with a hammer-and-sickle forming the centre of the D, natch).
  • Similarly Named Works: There's also a women-in-prison film called Red Heat from 1985.
