  • From a budget of just under $1 million, the film went on to gross ten times its production costs in its initial release.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): As the scene in which Terry coaxes Edie into walking home with him dissolves, Eva Marie Saint breaks character by abruptly stopping and turning around to head back towards the crew area near the camera.
  • Marlon Brando was paid $100,000, Elia Kazan received $100,000 plus 25% of the box office.
  • The real-life model for the film's Johnny Friendly character (played by Lee J. Cobb) was International Longshoremen's Association boss Michael Clemente (Johnny Friendly also has aspects of former Murder Inc. head Albert Anastasia, who was a top enforcer for the crime family that ran the Hoboken docks, the Luciano - later Genovese - family). In 1979 Clemente and other members of the Genovese family were indicted for corruption and racketeering on the New York waterfront.
