Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead (1990) Trivia

Richard Dreyfuss' part was to be played by Sean Connery, who abandoned the film for a bigger paycheck in The Hunt for Red October.

The title comes from one of the final lines of "Hamlet", where a British ambassador enters the Danish court to find Hamlet, Claudius, Gertrude, and Laertes all dead. The ambassador's line is, "...To tell the King his commandment is fulfilled, that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead."

The opening song at the beginning of the movie is Pink Floyd's "Seamus" (Meddle, 1971). The version included in the movie is an instrumental version. The album version has vocals. During the theatre company's performance of pseudo-Hamlet, a sound bit from Pink Floyd's "Echoes" (also from Meddle, 1971) can be heard. The sound of the rapier sword is the first note heard in "Echoes".

The pieces of paper blowing around throughout the course of the movie are actually the pages of the Latin Vulgate Bible, as can be seen on the close-up of Rosencrantz's apple pinwheel (specifically, The Prophecy of Zacharias, chapter 8).

Originally, the two leads (who appropriately spend the movie mixing up their own names) were cast the other way around.

While on the ship bound for England, Tim Roth remarks, "I think I'll spend the rest of my life on boats." He does just that in the La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano ("The Legend of 1900"), in which his character spends his entire life on a cruise liner, never once stepping on dry land.

This movie is based on the original Broadway production of "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" by Tom Stoppard and opened on October 9, 1967 at the Alvin Theater, ran for 420 performances and won the 1968 Tony Award for Best Play.

Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead (1990) Goofs

Incorrectly regarded as goofs: When Rosencrantz and Guildenstern first encounter The Player, it is day, and then suddenly changes to night. At times, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are in a night-time setting, but when the shot changes to show the The Player and his Tragedians, the sky is blue/grey. However, this is probably intentional. Absurdist drama often features a vague or ill-defined setting, including time of day. Tom Stoppard also wrote the stage play on which his screenplay is based, which features several such apparent jumps in time continuity as a means of promoting or maintaining a sense of confusion in the audience.
