Hughes, in order to receive the MPPDA's approval, deleted the more violent scenes, added a prologue to condemn gangsterism, and wrote a new ending.
In addition, a couple of scenes were added to overtly condemn gangsterism, such as a scene in which a newspaper publisher looks at the screen and directly admonishes the government and the public for their lack of action in fighting against mob violence and a scene in which the chief detective denounces the glorification of gangsters.
They were directed by Richard Rossen, earning Rossen the title of "co-director". In the scene where Tony kills Rinaldo, Cesca says the word "murderer", but she can be seen mouthing the word "Scarface".
The original script had Tony's mother loving her son unconditionally, praising his lifestyle, and even accepting money and gifts from him. In addition, there was a politician who, despite campaigning against gangsters on the podium, is shown partying with them after hours.
The script ends with Tony staying in the building, unaffected by tear gas and a multitude of bullets fired at him. After the building is on fire, Tony is forced to exit, guns blazing.
He is sprayed with police gunfire but appears unfazed. Upon noticing the police officer who had been arresting him throughout the film, he fires at him, only to hear a single "click" noise implying his gun is empty.
He is killed after the police officer shoots him several times. A repeated clicking noise is heard on the soundtrack implying he was attempting to fire while he was dying.
The first version of the film Version A was completed on September 8, , but censors required the ending be modified or they would refuse to grant Scarface a license.
Paul Muni was unable to re-film the ending in due to his work on Broadway. Consequently, Hawks was forced to use a body double.
The body double was mainly filmed by way of shadows and long shots in order to mask Muni's absence in these scenes. Unlike the original ending where Tony tries to escape from the police and dies after being shot several times, in the alternate ending, Tony reluctantly hands himself over to the police.
After the encounter, Tony's face is not shown. A scene follows where a judge is addressing Tony during sentencing.
The next scene is the finale, in which Tony seen from a bird's eye view is brought to the gallows and hanged. However, Version B did not pass the New York censors and Chicago censors.
Howard Hughes felt the Hays office had suspicious intentions in rejecting the film because Hays was friends with Louis B. Mayer and Hughes believed censorship was to prevent wealthy independent competitors from producing films.
Confident his film could stand out among audiences more than Mayer's films, Hughes organized a press showing of the film in Hollywood and New York. Hughes disowned the censored film and finally in released Version A with the added text introduction in states that lacked strict censors Hughes attempted to take the New York censors to court.
This release version led to bonafide box office status and positive critical reviews. Hughes was successful in subsequent lawsuits against the boards that censored the film.
Due to the film's urban setting, nondiegetic music not visible on the screen or implied to be present in the story was not used in the film. Adolf Tandler served as the film's musical director, while Gus Arnheim served as the orchestra's conductor.
Gus Arnheim and his Cocoanut Grove Orchestra perform " Saint Louis Blues " by W. Handy and " Some of These Days " by Shelton Brooks in the nightclub.
The serious play Tony and his friends go to see, leaving at the end of Act 2, is John Colton and Clemence Randolph's Rain , based on W.
Somerset Maugham 's story " Miss Sadie Thompson ". The play opened on Broadway in and ran throughout the s. A film version of the play, also titled Rain and starring Joan Crawford , was released by United Artists the same year as Scarface.
This was most prominent through the subtle and arguably incestuous relationship Tony Camonte and his sister share. After battling with censorship offices, the film was released almost a year late, behind The Public Enemy and Little Caesar which had been filmed at the same time.
Scarface was released in theaters on April 9, State censorship boards in Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, and Kansas and citywide censorship boards in Detroit, Seattle, Portland, and Chicago banned the film as well.
Joy visited state censor boards individually, stating that while the Hays Office was against the positive portrayal of crime, gang films were actually documents against gangster life.
Joy was successful and eventually all state and municipal censorship boards allowed Scarface to be released, accepting only the cut and censored version of Scarface.
The film was released on DVD on May 22, , and was released again on August 28, , in celebration of the th anniversary of Universal Studios , by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Both versions of the DVD include an introduction by Turner Classic Movies host and film historian Robert Osborne and the film's alternate ending. At the time of release, audience reception was generally positive.
He goes on to say the film "should never have been made" and showing the film would "do more harm to the motion picture industry, and everyone connected with it, than any picture ever shown.
Hecht did; however, criticize Muni's performance. Having known Al Capone, Hecht claimed that Muni portrayed Capone as too "silent" and "moody", more similar to "Hitler".
The film initiated outrage among Italian organizations and individuals of Italian descent, remarking a tendency of filmmakers to portray gangsters and bootleggers in their films as Italian.
In the film, an Italian American makes a speech condemning gangster activities; this was added later in production to appease censors.
This, however, did not prevent the Italian embassy from disapproving Scarface. The decisions were upheld by the Films Appeal Board each time.
It was banned on April 24, under its original title. No appeal was lodged. Various reasons include pandering to sensationalism, glamorizing the gangster lifestyle and implying an incestuous relationship between the protagonist and his sister.
Several cities in the United States including Chicago and some states refused to show the film. The magazine Movie Classics ran an issue urging the people to demand to see the film at theaters despite the censorship bans.
Upset at the inability to make money from Scarface , Howard Hughes removed the film from circulation. The critics' consensus reads: "This Scarface foregoes his "little friend" and packs a different kind of heat, blending stylish visuals, thrilling violence, and an incredible cast.
In , Scarface was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
Scarface was acknowledged as the sixth best in the gangster film genre. The version was placed 10th, making Scarface the only film to make the same "10 Top 10" list as its remake.
Scholars debate whether Scarface classifies as a film with historical significance or as merely a Hollywood gangster-era motion picture.
Burnett, author of gangster novel Little Caesar from which the film of the same name was based on, Fred D. Pasley, a prominent Chicago gangland historian, and ex-Chicago reporter Ben Hecht.
Valentine's Day Massacre contribute to the film's realism and authenticity. Sherwood stated the film, "merits According to film studies professor Fran Mason, a prominent theme in the film is excess.
The opening of the film sets the stage as Big Louie Costillo sits in the remnants of a wild party, convincing his friends his next party will be bigger, better, and have "much more everything".
The death scene of Costillo sets the next tone of excess. In this scene, the audience sees only the shadow of Tony Camonte with a gun, hears the shots and the sound of the body hitting the floor.
The violent scenes become more severe as the film progresses. Most of the violence in the film is shown through montage, as scenes go by in sequence, showing the brutal murders that Tony and his gang commit such as roughing up bar owners, a drive-by bombing, and the massacre of seven men against a wall.
A scene shows a peel-off calendar rapidly changing dates while shot by a machine gun, making the excessive violence clear.
The violence is not only perpetrated by the gangsters. The police in the final scene with Tony and Cesca spare no effort to catch the notorious Camonte siblings, visible through the disproportionate number of police officers and cars surrounding the apartment complex to apprehend one man.
Tony and the police's excessive use of violence throughout the film normalizes it. In the scene in the restaurant in which men from the North Side gang attempt to shoot Tony with a Tommy, he obtains pleasure from the power.

Quotes [ first lines ] Fidel Castro We don't want them! We don't need them! Crazy Credits SCARFACE is a fictional account of the activities of a small group of ruthless criminals.
The characters do not represent the Cuban-American Community, and it would be erroneous and unfair to suggest that they do.
The vast majority of Cuban-Americans have demonstrated a dedication, vitality, and enterprise that has enriched the American scene. Alternate Versions When originally released in theaters the film featured an intermission which is absent from subsequent home video and theatrical releases.
Connections Featured in Chuck Norris vs. User Reviews Scarface 24 March by Coxer99 — See all my reviews. Was this review helpful to you? Initial critical reception was negative due to its excessive violence, profanity, and graphic drug usage.
Some Cuban expatriates in Miami objected to the film's portrayal of Cubans as criminals and drug traffickers. In the years that followed, however, critics have reappraised it, and it is now considered by some to be one of the best films in the crime genre, and one of the greatest remakes ever made.
Screenwriters and directors such as Martin Scorsese have praised the film, and it has been referenced extensively in pop culture, especially in hip hop music ,   as well as comic books, television programs, and video games, although over the years, the film has been regarded as a cult film.
In , Cuban refugee and ex-convict Tony Montana arrives in Miami , Florida , as part of the Mariel boatlift , where he is sent to a refugee camp with friends Manny Ray, Angel, and Chi Chi.
The four are released and given green cards in exchange for murdering a former Cuban general at the request of Miami drug lord Frank Lopez.
They become dishwashers at an eatery, but a dissatisfied Tony proclaims that he is meant for bigger things. Frank's right-hand man, Omar, sends the four to purchase cocaine from Colombian dealers, but the deal goes badly.
Angel is dismembered with a chainsaw, while Manny and Chi Chi rescue Tony and kill the Colombians. Suspecting that Omar set them up, Tony and Manny insist on personally delivering the recovered drugs and money to Frank.
During their meeting, Tony is attracted to Frank's trophy wife , Elvira. Frank hires Tony and Manny. Tony reunites with his mother and younger sister Gina, of whom he is overprotective.
Disgusted by his life of crime, his mother throws him out. Manny is attracted to Gina, but Tony tells him to stay away from her. Frank sends Tony and Omar to Cochabamba , Bolivia to meet with cocaine kingpin Alejandro Sosa.
Tony negotiates a deal without Frank's approval, angering Omar. Sosa claims that Omar is a police informant and that Frank has poor judgement; Tony witnesses a beaten Omar hanged from a helicopter.
Tony vouches for Frank's organization, and Sosa, taking a liking to Tony, agrees to the deal, but not before warning Tony never to betray him. Back in Miami, Frank is infuriated by Omar's demise and the unauthorized deal struck by Tony, while Tony starts his own independent cocaine operation.
At a nightclub, Bernstein, a corrupt police detective on Frank's payroll, attempts to extort money from Tony in return for police protection.
Tony spots Gina fraternizing with a man and beats them both when he sees him grope her. Hitmen then attempt to assassinate Tony, who escapes but is wounded.
He confronts Frank and Bernstein, certain that they orchestrated the attack; Frank confesses his involvement at gunpoint and begs for his life, but he and Bernstein are killed by Manny and Tony, respectively.
Tony marries Elvira and becomes the distributor of Sosa's product, using his profits to build a multi-million-dollar business empire and construct a vast, heavily guarded estate.
In , a sting operation by federal agents results in Tony being charged with tax evasion and money laundering , with an inevitable prison sentence.
Sosa offers to use his government connections to keep Tony out of prison, but only if Tony assassinates an activist intending to expose Sosa's drug operations.
During a public dinner, Tony accuses Manny of causing his arrest and Elvira of being an infertile junkie, causing Elvira to leave him.
Tony travels to New York City to carry out the assassination with Sosa's henchman, Shadow, who plants a radio-controlled bomb under the activist's car.
However, when the activist is unexpectedly accompanied by his wife and children, Tony tries to call off the hit. Shadow refuses to back down, and Tony kills him before he can detonate the bomb.
Tony, at his mother's behest, tracks down Gina and finds her with Manny; in a fit of rage, Tony shoots Manny dead, after which Gina tearfully tells Tony that they were married the day before.
A distraught Tony returns to his estate with Gina, and begins a massive cocaine binge in his office. While dozens of Sosa's men begin to invade the estate and kill all of Tony's guards, Gina accuses Tony of wanting her for himself and shoots at him.
One of Sosa's men kills her and is in turn killed by Tony. With assassins outside his office, Tony turns a grenade launcher -equipped rifle on them, mowing down many.
Tony is repeatedly shot by the remaining attackers, but continues to taunt them until he is fatally shot from behind by The Skull.
Tony's corpse falls into a fountain below, in front of a statue with the inscription "The World is Yours". Additionally, Geno Silva portrays the assassin who kills Tony Montana, credited as The Skull.
Scarface began development after Al Pacino saw the film of the same name at the Tiffany Theater while in Los Angeles. He later called his manager, producer Martin Bregman , and informed him of his belief in the potential for a remake of that film.
Bregman and Lumet's creative differences saw Lumet drop out of the project. Lumet had wanted to make a more political story that focused on blaming the current Presidential administration for the influx of cocaine into the United States, yet Bregman disagreed.
There's a prohibition against drugs that's created the same criminal class as prohibition of alcohol created the Mafia. We'd had dozens of these things.
But then Bregman came back to me and said, Sidney has a great idea — he wants to do it as a Marielito picture in Miami.
I said, That's interesting! Sidney's idea was a good one. Stone researched the script while battling his own cocaine addiction.
Attorney's Office and the Organized Crime Bureau. It's very destructive to the brain cells. Pacino insisted on taking the lead role as Tony Montana, although Robert De Niro had been offered it and had turned it down.
Meryl Streep 's immigrant character in Sophie's Choice also influenced Pacino's portrayal of Tony Montana. Bauer and a dialect coach helped him learn aspects of the Cuban Spanish language and pronunciation.
Pfeiffer was an unknown actress at the time, and both Pacino and De Palma had argued against her casting, but Bregman fought for her inclusion.
Bauer got his role without even auditioning. During the audition process, casting director Alixe Gordin saw Bauer and instantly noted that he was right for the role of Manny, a judgment with which both De Palma and Bregman agreed.
He was the only actual Cuban in the principal cast. John Travolta was considered for the role. Despite the film being set in Miami, much of the film was shot in Los Angeles due to the Miami Tourist Board declining requests to film there as it feared the film would deter tourism to the city with its themes of drugs and gangsters.
The production was halted twice for severe weather events in California. Production was shut down for more than a week while Pacino recovered.
Less than two months before the film's release, on October 28, , Scarface was given an X rating by the Motion Picture Association of America for "excessive and cumulative violence and for language.
We'll accept the X rating and appeal. Instead of using popular music from the period in which the film is set, the music in Scarface was produced by Academy Award-winning Italian record producer Giorgio Moroder.
Reflecting Moroder's style, the soundtrack consists mostly of muzak-like synthesized new wave , electronic music. De Palma said that he repeatedly denied Universal's requests to release the film with a "pop" score because he felt Moroder's score was adequate.
Scarface premiered on December 1, , in New York City , where it was initially greeted with mixed reaction. The film's two stars, Al Pacino and Steven Bauer, were joined in attendance by Burt and Diane Lane , Melanie Griffith , Raquel Welch , Joan Collins , her boyfriend Peter Holm , and Eddie Murphy , among others.
Scarface was initially released by MCA Home Video on VHS , CED Videodisc , Laserdisc , and Beta in the summer of — a two-tape set in 1.
The last VHS release was in to counterpart the 20th anniversary edition DVD. The DVD was remastered and re-released through Universal Records.
The television version of Scarface premiered on ABC on January 7, The film received a North American DVD release on the film's fifteenth anniversary in , featuring a non-anamorphic widescreen transfer, a "Making of" documentary, outtakes , production notes, and cast and crew biographies.
This release was not successful, and many fans and reviewers complained about its unwatchable video transfer and muddled sound, describing it as "one of the worst big studio releases out there".
Scarface was released on Blu-ray on September 6, , in a two-disc, limited edition, steelbox package:  the set was criticized for its poor picture quality due to usage of an old master created from the DVD release.

However, there are still many good things about this system. This is perhaps less applicable to our world and rather helps you better understand the character of Tony Montana.
Right before he gets shot to death, Tony boasts about his own greatness while still trying to get the bad guys with his shooting.
It's not entirely clear if he is really brave or simply has nothing to lose. In any case, the phrase is one of the most iconic ones he had.
The first very interesting truth Tony Montana reveals about "this country" is the sequence in which a man can get the best things in his life.
First, he needs to make money. It is essential for survival and for sustaining his own life and the life of his family in the future.
Then, he can get power with the help of this money. And once he gets the power, he will be able to get women, and, consequently, start a family if he wants.
As a part of his drunken monologue after Elvira leaves him, Tony mutters these two sentences. He is in a restaurant and people around him had just witnessed his fight with Elvira.
He is drunk and tries to leave while talking about how everyone needs people like him to point at and say that he is the bad guy.Tony Montana Pacino und drei seiner Kollegen bekommen den Auftrag, Drogen von Kolumbianern zu kaufen.
