- The events in this film occur after the events in "Manhunter (1986)" (qv).
Although there are several characters common to both films, there are only
two actors who appear in both movies. Ironically, both actors play different
characters in both movies. 'Frankie Faison' (qv) plays Lt Fisk in
"Manhunter (1986)" (qv) and Barney in
"The Silence of the Lambs (1991)" (qv), and 'Dan Butler' (qv) plays an FBI
fingerprint expert in "Manhunter (1986)" (qv) and an entomologist in
"The Silence of the Lambs (1991)" (qv).
- 'Gene Hackman' (qv) was first offered the role of Hannibal Lector, and
was set to direct. When 'Jonathan Demme' (qv) took over as director, he
offered the role of Clarice first to 'Michelle Pfeiffer' (qv).
