Trivia:

  • When Mills realizes whose head is in the box, there is a single-frame shot of that person.
     
  • The screenplay had references to a partner Mills had when he still lived in the country, named Parsons. Parsons was shot and killed while on a bust with Mills, and consequently Mills is overprotective of Somerset in some scenes. All references to Parsons were deleted before shooting began.
     
  • Andrew Kevin Walker, the writer of the film, appears as the first corpse.
     
  • One version of the script contained a few scenes following the final confrontation between the detectives and John Doe. In one of them, Somerset is recovering in the hospital after being shot by Mills, and the captain delivers a letter to him from Mills which reads, "You were right. You were right about everything."
     
  • Mills and William Somerset discuss the book "Of Human Bondage", which was written by W. Somerset Maugham.
     

Credits Fun:

  • Credits roll down instead of up.
     
  • The opening credits are done over broken, blurred images of John Doe removing the skin from his fingertips and sewing it into his journals.
