Did you know?
Beat scholar Brian Hassett pointed out some of the multiple sources beyond the novel also used/referenced/seen in the movie: Director Walter Salles and screenwriter Jose Rivera used the scroll version of On The Road (published 2007), not the 1957 edition, as the working blueprint. And then all sorts of little touches were added from Neal, Jack & Allen's letters, Carolyn Cassady's autobiography, the 2 different LuAnne Henderson interviews, "The Town And The City," Jack's audio recordings and articles and notebooks, Allen Ginsberg's "Denver Doldrums," "Dakar Doldrums" and the "Martyrdom and Artifice" journals, John Clellon Holmes' "Go," Gifford & Lee's oral biography "Jack's Book" - all noticed specifically.

Johnny Depp turned down the role of Sal Paradise when the film was in early development in the early 90s.

Because Amy Adams had just become a mother when shooting began and she's playing a drug addict on the movie, she decided to not use much make-up and incorporate her natural tiredness due to having a baby to the role.

In the opening scenes, Sal Paradise hitches a ride on the old farm truck. The large, round hay and straw bales in the background weren't available until 1972, when Vermeer built and sold the model 605 baler. Even then, the bales were much smaller and looser until the late '70s or early '80s on United States farms.

Set in 1949, but the characters ride in a 1950 Hudson.

Among Sal's books is a copy of Saul Bellow's "Seize the Day", which was first published in 1956.

Sal Paradise: The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.

Is this the first film adaptation of 'On the Road'?
Yes, it is. Attempts have been made to film it in the past, but this is the first to make it to the screen. There was also TV movie produced in Canada.
