- Steven Spielberg requested that no one gain admittance to the movie once it had already begun, just as Alfred Hitchcock did during the release of Psycho (1960).
- In the final battle scene, Ryan informs Miller that they can use the mortar rounds like grenades. Many of the rounds they toss, however, explode at different times inconsistent with the angle of the throw and where they would have landed. Some of the explosions occur before the mortar rounds hit the ground.
