Trivia from Crimes and Misdemeanors

  • Role of Prof. Louis Levy, subject of Cliff Stern's documentary in this film, is played by non-actor and therapist friend of Woody's, world renowned Martin S. Bergmann, clinical professor of psychology of New York University post-doctoral program.
  • One third of the film had Woody Allen's character shooting a documentary on old vaudevillians, with Mia Farrow as the head of the institute to which they belonged. Allen didn't like the scenes in the final cut.
  • In the film's post-production Allen cut an entire third of the film. He then rewrote and reshot deleted third of the film from scratch. As a result, Sean Young's scenes were cut out, and Daryl Hannah's role reduced to a brief cameo.
  • Allen launched the project under the one-word title "Brothers," a variation on his earlier interest in writing films about sisters.
