Crew/Equipment Visible
In the scene where Oskar Schindler and Itzhak Stern negotiate with the Jewish investors outside the ghetto, Steven Spielberg is reflected on the rear window (his jacket is blowing in the wind).
This was considered as the most expensive black and white film made till date, with a budget of 22 million US dollars.

During the filming, the atmosphere was so grim and depressing that Steven Spielberg asked his friend Robin Williams if he could film some comedy sketches.

After filming this movie, Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes to real became very good friends.

Earlier Harrison Ford was offered the title role but declined, saying that some people would not be able to look past him as a star to see the importance of the film.

Steven Spielberg was not paid for this film as he refused to accept a salary, citing that it would be "blood money".

To the fact Ralph Fiennes put on 13kg by drinking Guinness for his role. Steven Spielberg cast him because of his "evil sexuality".

Steven Spielberg actually refuses to autograph any materials related to this film.
