Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Alan Parker's two sons, Alexander Parker and Jake Parker composed the incidental music for the film. His younger son, Alex, composed and performed the end credits track.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Near the end of the film, when the protesters are outside David Gale's execution, there is a clear shot of a large banner hung across a barricade which reads "Mark 6:10 Murder does not stop Murder." Mark 6:10 actually reads "And He said to them, Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave town." (NASB), so the bible quote actually has nothing to do with murder at all.
  • The scene where Gale is drunk in downtown Austin (6th street) was somewhat improvised and shot with two lights and a camera. "Most of those people aren't extras," Alan Parker said to an audience at the University of Washington.
  • Kevin Spacey was the third choice to play David Gale. George Clooney and Nicolas Cage both rejected the part. Nicolas Cage had the script and gave it to Parker, but was already busy with other projects.
