Movie Trivia:
  • Mike Nichols briefly considered directing this film.
  • After the success of A Bridge Too Far (1977), producer Joseph E. Levine wanted to work with writer William Goldman and director Richard Attenborough again and bought the rights to Goldman's book with the intention of having Attenborough direct it. Attenborough accepted the assignment because he could use it to finance the film he really wanted to make, Gandhi (1982).
  • Norman Jewison was set to direct the movie before Richard Attenborough signed on.
  • The role of Corky was originally offered to Jack Nicholson, but upon hearing that he would have to wear a hairpiece to play the role, Nicholson turned it down.
  • Sir Laurence Olivier was set to play Ben Green, but had to drop out due to illness.
