Trivia

The opening scene, in which Jon Rubin (Robert De Niro) is shown around his crummy new apartment by the landlord (Charles Durning), is a parody of a then-contemporary television public service announcement for the New York Urban Coalition, in which a similarly slimy landlord shows off a dilapidated apartment to a black man. The movie scene follows the commercial rather closely, and both De Niro and the unnamed black renter accept the apartment with the same words: "I'll take it." The commercial, however, is in black and white. (The public service campaign, titled "Give A Damn", was also responsible for the same-named 1969 hit single by the pop group Spanky & Our Gang.)
