Audio problem: Near the end of the movie, when the Ambassador is dragging the child up the aisle of the church, in several spots you hear the child scream but his mouth isn't open. (01:45:35)
Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) finds the triple 6 on his son, Damien's head, beneath his hair. The nanny tries to kill Thorn but he kills her. Thorn rushes to a church with his son and the police pursue. In the church, he's about to kill his son with the daggers and the police shoot. For a moment, we don't see if Thorn killed his son or not. The scene changes to a funeral and we see young Damien turn around and smile to the camera...
Mrs Baylock: Have no fear, little one... I am here to protect thee.
Trivia: The smile that Damien gives at the very end wasn't scripted. Originally, Damien was supposed to "look really mean," but Harvey Stephens couldn't keep a straight face: he started to smile, then laugh. Richard Donner decided that the smile made Damien look even more evil, so it stayed in the movie.
Question: Something that puzzles me about the thee Omen films taken together. In the first film of the series the very young Damien is taken into a church. As the son of the Devil he has a great aversion to all things Christian, so he has a huge tantrum, and screams, struggles and resists going into the building. So how is it, that, as the series progresses, he can enter Christian buildings without any ill effects? (The denouement of the third and final Omen film is set in Fountains Abbey, a venerated Christian church in Yorkshire).
