[1] Competed in the 1992 Cannes Film Festival
[2] Continuity Error #1 - When Shannon and Joseph first go to meet the ward boss, Shannon is splattered in the face with blood. She wipes some of it away, but later in the scene, the blood is back on her face.
[3] Continuity Error #2 - Shannon falls off her horse into the muddy water, submerged nearly to her neck, yet when we next see her on her horse her white shirt is dry and pristine.
[4] During shooting the scene where Shannon lifts the bowl covering Joseph's crotch, Ron Howard wasn't happy with Nicole facial reaction, so without telling her, he told Tom Cruise to remove his underwear so he would get the reaction he wanted.
