I saw a wonderful interview with Bob Hoskins once who was originally cast as Al Capone. DePalma was honest with him and said they were really after De Niro but would he mind being stand by. When they did get De Niro, being more expensive and also paying off Hoskins the original shoot-out on the train was abandoned. Hoskins said he was at home eating his breakfast when the pay-off cheque came through. He was astonished to be paid so he rung up De Palma saying, "Have you got any more films you don't want me to do?" Not sure how true this is, but it's a great story.

To quote Clint Eastwood, I had to look it up.

So the Eisenstein reference refers to a film he did according to this article below. It refers to Battleship Potemkin, I’ve not seen this.

Your education in film is incomplete if you haven't seen Battleship Potemkin! Available on Blu-ray from Kino.

The nice thing about running a Plex server (if you can live with the side effect of being a freaking crazy person to go through the effort in the first place) is that you can choose what poster art displays for each film. I’ve went in and manually changed just about everything to the original theatrical one sheets.
This * 1000.

I recently did the covers to all the Star Wars movies using the ones available with individual characters and small lettering.

The score is just so good it’s unbelievable. I had the original issue years ago and then got the deluxe version which remains one of my favorite soundtrack albums.
Yes Ennio Morricone's score for this film is excellent and really drives home the emotional impact of the major character deaths.

I was a projectionist when this first came out and remember running it in 35MM. Generally speaking projectionists usually just thread the film, start it make sure it's all good and then saunter off and forget it (if you are running the platter system where all reels are cut together to run as one long feature) until it runs to its end. But I remember this was one film I would pull up the stool and sit next to the projector, watch through the window and listen through the tinny monitor.
