Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Jeremy Irons did meet the real 'Claus Von Bulow' though not until several years after the release of the film. Irons commented "he didn't tell me anything I didn't already know."
  • According to casting director Howard Feuer, Glenn Close was paid "an outrageous fortune" for three weeks' work as the leading lady. And while leads Jeremy Irons and Ron Silver were paid quite handsomely, supporting players Julie Hagerty, Fisher Stevens and Uta Hagen had to settle for scale plus 10.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): Von Bülow abruptly switches his eating hand in the restaurant.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): In the opening shot flying over the estates in Newport, visitors can be seen at some of the mansions. As the film is set in 1983, some of the mansions would have been open to the public like The Breakers or Marble House.
