Clue (1985)

Trivia: The producer's first choice for the role of Ms. Scarlett was Carrie Fisher, but she was unable to sign onto the film because she'd recently admitted herself to a rehab facility to battle drug addiction.

El Dorado (1966)

Trivia: In the scene near the end of the film where Mississippi, JP, and Bull are attempting to sneak into the saloon through the back, Mississippi disables the guard at the back door by disguising himself as a Chinese person. In the original release of the film, he puts on the disguise, then squints his eyes and speaks in vaguely Asian-sounding gibberish. This was deemed insensitive and inappropriate, and when the film is shown on television, the scene cuts awkwardly to avoid the offensive expressions and dialog.
