IT’S THE THIRD FILM TO EVER WIN ALL OF THE "BIG FIVE" OSCARS—BEST PICTURE, ACTOR, ACTRESS, DIRECTOR, AND SCREENPLAY.

The other two were It Happened One Night in 1935, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in 1976.


SEAN CONNERY WAS THE FIRST CHOICE TO PLAY LECTER.

Connery read the script and found it “revolting.” Daniel Day-Lewis and Derek Jacobi were also considered.


LECTER NEVER SAID "HELLO, CLARICE."

The line that most people think was a quote is actually, "Good evening, Clarice."


THE AUTHOR DID NOT BASE HANNIBAL ON ANYONE.

He was a general composite of all of the evil that Thomas Harris saw while doing research. "There is no one, thank goodness, like him," said FBI profiler John Douglas, the inspiration for Jack Crawford.


SCOTT GLENN BROKE DOWN WHILE RESEARCHING HIS ROLE AS CRAWFORD.

Douglas gave Glenn a tour of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit in Quantico, Virginia. After hearing tapes of serial killers Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris raping and torturing a 16-year-old girl, Glenn walked out “in tears,” and was suddenly in favor of the death penalty.


BUFFALO BILL WAS BASED ON THREE SERIAL KILLERS.

They were Ted Bundy, Gary M. Heidnik, and Ed Gein. Thomas Harris even attended some of Bundy’s murder trial and sent him a copy of Red Dragon.


LEVINE NEEDED LIQUID COURAGE BEFORE PERFORMING THE DANCE.

Before the big scene, Levine “took a couple shots” of tequila.
