David Bowie was reportedly somewhat intimidated by Catherine Denueve but got on easily with Susan Sarandon.

Susan Sarandon was not completely thrilled with the way her seduction scene with Catherine Deneuve was conceived. In the film, Deneuve gives Sarandon something to drink, then Sarandon becomes light-headed and loses her inhibitions. Sarandon didn't like that angle - she stated that it didn't matter if you were straight or gay, no one would need to be drugged to be talked into sleeping with Catherine Deneuve!

Apparently, Ridley Scott was set to direct the film, but decided to pass when he heard Bowie was in on the deal.

There was a strong rumour that both lead actors used body doubles for the famous shower scene.

The lighting for the movie followed the Scott brothers' concept, 'Blag Dog'. It was the second movie to do so after 'Alien'.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions

HBO had an alternate version. But it's been a while since it has aired.
