Tom Cruise did a wonderful job in this movie and news stories in the years after Legend had played in theatres often quoted him saying that it had been his favorite film and he was heart broken that it had not done better at the box office.

Since, though, he seems to have disavowed any knowledge of it (presumably because it flopped in the box office).
Thanks to Jason Chapman
The swamp witch 'Meg Mucklebones' was actually played by a man! This was Robert Picardo, who also plays the holographic doctor in Star Trek Voyager and the 'Cowboy' in "Innerspace"!
Thanks to Laurent ÉCrivain
The Swiss-German actor David Bennent (Gump) was 18 when filming Legend. He got his first role in the very interesting 1979 film, based on the Günter grass novel, Die Blechtrommel (The Tin Drum) because, at the age of 11, he had the body of a six year old and the story was about a boy who threw himself down a flight of stairs at the age of 3 to stunt his growth and never grow up to be like the decadent adults around him during the pre-nazi and nazi era. From what I have heard from Ridley Scott during his commentary, he finally grew up to the normal height of 5'9" and is now 36 years old.

The Devil is played by Tim Curry who also played the alien transvestite in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Bogus Trivia

There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Legend".
