Movie Trivia:

  • Alan Parker offered the role of Harry Angel to Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro himself before Mickey Rourke was cast.
  • Shirley Stoler was originally cast in the part of "Izzy's Wife", but was replaced by Judith Drake. Stoler's voice can still be heard at the end of the scene, singing the song, "I Cried For You".
  • When Harry Angel visits Margaret Krusemark for the first time, Margaret orders her maid to bring them tea; she and the maid speak briefly in French, which Angel obviously doesn't understand. The maid is asking "Should I bring out the best cups?" and Margaret responds "No."
