Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Harvey Keitel's role was previously played by Scott Glenn in The Silence of the Lambs. Keitel and Glenn appeared together in Puerto Vallarta Squeeze (2004). They are also both former U.S. Marines.
  • The novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris was first published in 1981, ten years before Anthony Hopkins was cast as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs. Nevertheless, it would seem that Welshman Hopkins was destined to play Lecter as the emblem on the flag of Wales is of a large red dragon on a green and white field. In the Welsh language, the flag's name is "Y Ddraig Goch," meaning literally The Red Dragon.
  • In William Blake's "Great Red Dragon" series of paintings, there are two with very similar names. The novel "Red Dragon," by Thomas Harris, uses the title of one painting ("The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun"), but in describing the image, gives a description of another ("The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed in the Sun"). Due to the muddled reference, the first adaptation of the the novel, Manhunter (dir: Michael Mann), Francis Dolarhyde is obsessed with the painting that Harris cites by name, while this film features the painting as described by Harris, which is a back view of the dragon with his tail wrapped around the woman.
  • Michael Jackson lobbied for the role of Dolarhyde.
