Trivia

  • During shooting, Edward G. Robinson was almost totally deaf. He could only hear people if they spoke directly into his ear. His dialogue scenes with other people had to be shot several times before he got the rhythm of the dialogue and was able to respond to people as if he could hear them. He could not hear director Richard Fleischer yell "cut" when a scene went wrong, so Robinson would often continue acting out the scene, unaware that shooting had stopped.

Goofs

  • When Thorn is in the Soylent Green factory, he knocks two factory employees off the catwalk. A stunt mattress can clearly be seen sticking out from underneath the conveyor belt where the second one lands.
