Trivia

Rather than shooting on location, director Francis Ford Coppola insisted on building sets, to add to the artificiality of the proscenium. Set construction proceeded to such an extent that a replica of Las Vegas' McCarran Airport - complete with a jetway and jet airliner (built from the nose section of a crashed plane) - was built and used for the penultimate scene. The sets for the film consumed the entirety of sound stage space at Coppola's recently-acquired American Zoetrope studio. Because of the maze of wiring and flammable scrims, backdrops and other materials, production designer Dean Tavoularis half-jokingly referred to the Vegas Strip set - the centerpiece of the film - as a "firetrap", saying it caused him to have "nightmares about fires" during the film's production.

Goofs

Though shot inside a sound stage, the opening shot of the front of the Fremont shows a completely wet street. Though done for lighting effect, nonetheless Las Vegas gets less than five or so inches of rain a year and the rainfall that does manage to hit the ground, evaporates almost immediately. See more »

Quotes

Leila: If you wanna get rid of a circus girl, all you've gotta do is close your eyes.
Hank: Yeah? Then what, circus girl?
Leila: She disappears. Like spit on a griddle.

4 February 2004 | by CanhenhaSee all my reviews

I have to start by saying that I've had this film on videotape for so long and have seen it so many times that I believe the tape must be damaged by now. I'm a huge fan of Francis Ford Coppola's films, not only his "Godfather" films, but also what he has produced in the 80's and 90's. "One from the Heart" stands as one of most beautiful and poetic art pieces I've seen, ever. He created an entire world on set, something that resembles Vegas, but that I feel, extends a bit beyond that, someplace where love does exist (and Frederic Forrest and Terri Garr are great, because they do represent the average man and woman that want to surpass their mediocrity and have the dream, represented by the late Raul Julia and the gorgeous Nastassja Kinski). The beautiful score by Tom Waits, and the entire dance acts are so wonderfully entwined, that it's impossible not to feel the taste of real cinema there. The cinematography is stunning and I can only sum this up by saying that this film is an incredible experience to watch. Please do so.
