Trivia from Broadway Danny Rose

  • This is Nick Apollo Forte's first and only movie to date.
  • The reason Mia Farrow wears sunglasses most of the film is that Woody Allen did not feel she could pass herself as a tough Italian "broad", so he had her wear the sunglasses most of the film to hide her eyes, making her seem more sultry and mysterious. The only time she removes the sunglasses is when her character is supposed to be more vulnerable.
  • The deli owner who informs Danny Rose about the fate of one the characters in the movie really does own the deli where the scene was shot. He was a retired comic and actor who retained his SAG card named Leo Steiner. He was only cast after the actors Woody Allen brought to the location were inadequate.
