Burke: Let me tell you something. I was making it a real point to mind my own business. Maybe you oughta try that for a while. Start right now. You give me back my ball, I'll give you yours.
- The prison where the movie was shot, the former Wyoming State Prison located in Rawlins, Wyoming, has daily tours and much of the set remains intact from when crews filmed there in 1987.
The electric chair (which was never used in Wyoming) was built into the actual gas chamber of the Wyoming Prison and the death scenes were filmed there. The original chair, was carefully removed and an electric chair was built in its place. During the shooting, Viggo Mortensen's convulsions were so violent the arms of the chair were broken and needed to be repaired.
The high altitude sun in Wyoming caused shooting issues in the scene where the prisoners are stripped to their underwear and forced to stand outside all day. Due to technical issues, the scene was shot over and over and the prisoners in the background become sunburned on one side of their bodies only as extras were not provided sunblock.
The water that Viggo Mortensen runs through in his underwear was real. That part of the prison had been flooded for years, the temperature in the room was below 50F and the water temperature was 46F. Mortensen's shivering is real. He insisted on shooting the scenes without a double, and only at being forced to relented for some close up scenes.
The "gate" for the entrance to the prison does not exist. It was built onto a back wall section of the prison. In the process of cutting a hole in the wall for vehicles, the wall, constructed by prison labor, it was discovered, had many odd items in it as filler including a snow plow.
