Trivia Edit

  1. There is an iconic shooting star shot; a nod to Steven Spielberg.
  2. Robert De Niro did a lot of working out several months before the movie, and during the shoot to make him the muscular Max Cady, reportedly taking his body fat down to only three percent.
  3. The thick accent Robert De Niro used to play Max Cady reportedly gave Martin Scorsese the creeps. As a joke, De Niro would call Scorsese's house, leaving voicemails as Cady.
  4. This was Gregory Peck's final appearance in a theatrical film release before his death on June 12, 2003, at the age of eighty-seven.
  5. Robert De Niro would only get under the Bowdens' car if a stuntman could prove it could be done.
  6. The score by Elmer Bernstein is not only an arrangement of Bernard Herrmann's original Cape Fear (1962) score, but also includes parts of Herrmann's unused score for Torn Curtain (1966).
