- In 1978, when Martin Scorsese was at an all-time low due to a near overdose resulting from an addiction to cocaine, Robert De Niro visited him at the hospital and told him that he had to clean himself up and make this movie about a boxer. At first, Scorsese refused (he didn't like sports movies anyway), but due to De Niro's persistence, he eventually gave in. Many claim (including Scorsese) that De Niro saved Scorsese's life by getting him back into work.
- In preparation for his role, Robert De Niro went through extensive physical training, then entered in three genuine Brooklyn boxing matches and won two of them.
- Martin Scorsese shunned the idea of filming the boxing scenes with multiple cameras. Instead, he planned months of carefully choreographed movements with one camera. He wanted the single camera to be like "a third fighter". *Raging Bull (1980)

The idea of dying doesn't scare Vasquez (Goldstein) - it just tees her off that she'll be missing a good scrap. *Aliens

"You know, when Escape from New York first came out, a lot of people said, 'I don't quite understand this movie ... is this some kind of comment that, like, New York is a prison?' and years later a lot of people are saying, 'You know, New York is looking a lot like that movie.' In Escape from L.A., it's a story about a guy who just wants a cigarette. He just wants a cigarette! Everybody laughed back then because there was no red meat, no cigarettes in the movie. Well, look around! It's happening! You can barely smoke a cigarette anymore and although I quit smoking six months ago, the anti-smoking laws are enough to make me want to smoke!" #KurtRussell

Originally the alien was to be found in the closet of the escape shuttle that would later be named the Narcissus. Ron Shusett thought that it would be a great moment if it was done right, Ripley would run, get to the safety boat, and its launched, the ship explodes and it's in the escape shuttle with her in the closet, this would have been the payoff.
After Dan O'Bannon had returned to the US, Ron and Ridley were having a chat , perhaps two thirds through the movie production. The command module of the Nostromo as seen in the opening sequence had been economically converted and redressed so that it became the interior of the Narcissus which was the escape pod. 
Ridley said to Ron "You know, wouldn't it be great if we had one more surprise because you've got a chestburster, and the robots head coming off. If we could have one more amazing thing in the lifeboat"
In view of the original alien in a closet ending, Ridley said "Can't we beat that?" Then he came up with another idea "She's somewhere, he's somewhere and she is there, but it's with her, can't it be somewhere she and the audience can't see it, it's camouflaged so well, and it just emerges!
"Right, okay, so where's the alien going to be?"
"The roof?",
They agreed "No, that's too easy because people don't look at the roof, it should be hiding in plain sight"
Besides that Ridley had already filmed the scene where the alien comes down like a bat on Brett, and wouldn't have been able to tolerate repeating himself
Ridley's view was " It should be that the audience can see it, but they don't know where they're seeing it."
Ron said "Ridley you're absolutely right"
Ridley replied, "okay, let's work on this"
Ivor asked "What if the alien is like a chameleon, and he's going into another stage? Giger's concept was biomechanoid, so if you front lit the alien, so the audience could see it, that would be an amazing coup. " *Alien 1979
