- The play that inspired "Frankie & Johnny" opened on October 27, 1987 at the Manhattan Theatre Club and was transferred to the Westside Arts Theatre in early December that year. "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune" won the Dramatists Guild Hull-Warriner Award for Best Play and was nominated for the Outer Critics Circle Award. The roles of Frankie and Johnny were originally played by Kathy Bates and F. Murray Abraham, two performers who were considerably less photogenic than the film's glamorous stars. This was a point made by several critics who refused to believe that any woman who looked like Michelle Pfeiffer could have gone years without a date.
- Additional cast: Jane Morris (Nedda), Greg Lewis (Tino), Al Fann (Luther), Fernando Lopez (Jorge), Tim Hopper (Lester), Harvey Miller (Mr. Rosen), Sean O'Bryan (Bobby), and Lucinda Crosby (Abused Neighbor).
- Additional credits: Jim Harrison (supervising music editor), Cinema Research Corporation (opticals), and R/Greenberg and Associates (main and end title design).

If you love romantic comedies, Frankie & Johnny is right up your alley! In fact, this film might rank up as one of the best in the genre! Directed by Garry Marshall(brother of Penny) Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer have dynamic chemistry as two folks looking for love in the wrong places! This movie will make you laugh as well as cry hoping that Al and Michelle hook up! I will not tell you the rest of the plot but I know you will enjoy it very much! The supporting cast adds to the fun of a well crafted movie that does not gets the recognition that it deserves! The film's soundtrack is top notch as well leaving you wanting for more!
