Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • SPOILER: A few weeks into filming, Jaye Davidson got ill from flu. A doctor was called to the set to take a look at him. The doctor entered Jaye's tiny trailer, examined him and came out to talk to director Neil Jordan. The doctor asked Neil "Have you considered the possibility that she might be pregnant?". To which Neil and the other crew began to laugh. The doctor looked bemused, and was only let in on the secret a few minutes later. He felt very foolish.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): SPOILER: When Jude confronts Fergus in his apartment, Fergus tells Jude that Jody died after he was hit by a Saracen armoured car. However, the military vehicle that hits Jody is actually an FV-1611 "Pig".
  • Producer Stephen Woolley owned a repertory cinema in London called the "Scala", when there were funding issues with the film Woolley ended up borrowing money from the Scala to keep the production afloat.
  • SPOILER: The casting of Dil proved extremely difficult for the filmmakers (Stanley Kubrick had at one point warned Neil Jordan the role was probably uncastable) until the casting director (Susie Figgis) received a tip-off from director Derek Jarman about Jaye Davidson. Davidson was later "discovered" by the film's casting agents at a wrap party for Jarman's film Edward II (1991), and was offered the opportunity to try out for the role of Dil. Davidson was (by his own admission) very drunk and not particularly enthusiastic (he thought it was just a joke at first) but eventually took the role in order to pay for a pair of hand-made leather riding boots he had seen in a copy of Vogue magazine.
