Trivia: The Quiet Earth

  • Name's the Same: Juan In A Million is also known as The Silent Earth (IMDb uses that name), not to be confused with this movie - Juan is practically a Whole Plot Reference of The Quiet Earth.
  • Playing Against Type: Bruno Lawrence was known for playing working-class roughs; he does a good job as a quiet, introverted, tormented scientist, but it isn't a role he would've been expected to play.
  • What Could Have Been: Supposedly Jack Nicholson was offered the part of Zac Hobson, and was willing to do it but wanted more money than the producers were willing to pay.
