* CreativeDifferences: At one point, Director of Photography Vittorio Storaro nearly quit the project when he and Creator/WarrenBeatty clashed over the use of the camera. Storaro wanted a dynamic fluid movement, while Beatty wanted static shots. Finally, a compromise was made between the two men. The film would open with static shots, and as it progressed, more camera moves are added. This style had similarly been applied to another film, that being ''Film/{{Network}}''. Yet by 2011, Beatty described the process with Storaro this way: "There's no greater cinematographer. We were in total agreement and had continual conversations."
