- Enforced Method Acting: That long sequence where Frank is running through the streets? None of that was planned. They just sat the camera on the back of a car and had the actor run through the streets. Those times where he nearly gets hit by a car and a bus, the actor really could have been hit by a car or a bus.
- Setting Update: The original 1949 movie takes place in San Francisco, while the 1988 remake takes place in Austin, Texas.
