You can get more trivia on Amazon.com

The Miami Beach scenes were actually filmed in St. Petersburg at the Don Cesar resort.

When Noodles (De Niro) is watching TV, there's an interview with a character called James Conway O'Donnell. In Goodfellas (1990) De Niro's character was called James Conway.

In preparation for his role as David 'Noodles' Aaronson, Robert De Niro requested a private meeting with renowned crime boss, Meyer Lansky, upon whom the character was loosely based. The request was denied.

Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and James Woods later appeared in Casino (1995). In both of these films, De Niro's character is Jewish.

Claudia Cardinale reportedly wanted the role of Carol, but was turned down by Leone.




Each one for himself, and God against all.

Really?  Wow, I would rather have seen her in this role.  Carole is Noodles's girlfriend, right?  I've got to take a shower and refresh my memory...

Yes, go to refresh, Il Buono ;)
Carol is the nympho girlfriend of Max in the 1933 period, but she was previously raped by Noodles during the jewelry robbery. Noodles' girlfriend was Eve.

I add this little trivia, that perhaps is already widely known: the restaurant scenes with Noodles and Deborah were filmed in Venice, on an island called Il Lido, where there is the Casino. Between 1990 and 1995 I spent there (I mean the island, not the Casino...  ;D) my New Year's Eves without knowing this fact, although OUTIA was already my best movie! Poor me! Gotta forget that you talked with Sergio, Il Buono, or I'll chain my neck one day or another, and...  ;D

Bye and bye

WoW! I was there too for long times (4 years), as i worked in a restaurant as cook. Somebody told me Leone came often in that restaurant!

Don't imagine it to be that impressing.  I didn't understand a word in Italian.  Except for Claudia Cardinale, Per un pugno di dollari and Clint Eastwood. ;D
