While shooting scenes on top of a high grassy slope, Cary Elwes broke his toe. André the Giant couldn’t walk up that hill, which was a huge slab, so he drove a rented, small four-wheeler and threw Elwes the keys to try it. Elwes went over a rock, which got caught between his toes and the pedal, crushing his toe. He couldn’t delay the shoot and thus shot his scene. In the film, you can see him limping when he’s running into the swamp. Costume designer Phyllis Dalton made a special shoe for him.
