Ted Tally also did the screenplay adaptation for 'Red Dragon' which proved that even with Anthony Hopkins back as Lector, Brett Ratner is no Michael Mann. Let alone Jonathan Demme or Ridley Scott.

'Thomas Harris' , author of the novel "The Silence of the Lambs", has never watched the film because he is afraid it will influence his writing.

As much as I love this film it also killed the reputation of the serious horror film. When this film came out it was called a horror film. When it started being so successful it started to be called a ... psychological thriller. After that point any dramatic horror film was called a psychological thriller. It's too late to go back. A lot of people I know still argue with me to this day that this film, Seven, and other films are not horror films. They're psychological thrillers. It is now in the minds of the normies.

John Hurt, Christopher Lloyd, Patrick Stewart, Louis Gossett Jr., Robert Duvall, Jack Nicholson, and Robert De Niro were all considered for the role of Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Jeremy Irons turned down the offer.

Jonathan Demme cast Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter based on his performance in The Elephant Man (1980).

Originally Anthony Hopkins was supposed to be holding a sausage when we first see him standing there. He was supposed to detach it and pass it to Starling through the drawer.








Ok. I made that up.

Anthony Hopkins described his voice for Hannibal Lecter as, "a combination of Truman Capote and Katharine Hepburn."

Anthony Hopkins studied videotapes of serial killers as part of his research for the film. After noticing that Charles Manson hardly ever blinked when he spoke, he did the same for Hannibal Lecter. (He did, however, blink at least once during Lecter's conversation with Clarice in his "open-plan" cell.)

I do my best to correct anyone that uses the term "psychological thriller."

The inspiration for the Silence of the Lambs was the real life relationship between University of Washington criminology professor and profiler Robert Keppel and real life serial killer Ted Bundy. Bundy helped Keppel in his investigation of the Green River Serial Killings in Washington. While Bundy was executed 24 January 1989, the Green River Killings went unsolved until 2001 when Gary Ridgway was arrested. On 5 November 2003, Ridgway pleaded guilty to 48 counts of aggravated first degree murder in a King County, Washington (Seattle) courtroom.

I never knew that. Now I notice the Truman Capote influence in the voice. Laughing

Jodie Foster claims that during the first meeting between Lecter and Starling, Anthony Hopkins's mocking of her southern accent was not rehearsed and that Hopkins improvised it on the spot. Foster's reaction of horror was totally genuine, as she felt personally attacked, though she later thanked Hopkins for generating such an honest reaction.
