Thirty-three years after the release of "Scarface" (on December 9, 1983), Brian De Palma's flashy, coke-fueled tale of Cuban immigrant drug lord Tony Montana now seems like a staple of '80s cinema. It provided pivotal early career breaks for a number of stars, from Michelle Pfeiffer to Bauer to F. Murray Abraham, as well as for screenwriter Oliver Stone. Along with fellow gangster Michael Corleone of the "Godfather" trilogy, Tony Montana is the role Al Pacino is most likely to be remembered for. And of course, the movie had an enormous impact on pop culture, from gangsta rap to video games to countless parodies involving someone quoting Tony's "Say hello to my leetle friend." Here are 25 things you probably didn't know about "Scarface."
