MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME The Facts

The script called for Aunt Entity (Tina Turner) to drive a vehicle. All of the vehicles were stick shifts, which Turner couldn't drive, so a special automatic had to be constructed.

 
The line "Remember, no matter where you go, there you are" is also spoken by Buckaroo Banzai (1984).

One of the restaurants in the post-apocalyptic city is The Atomic Cafe, a reference to The Atomic Cafe (1982), a documentary about the Cold War, nuclear fear and propaganda films from the government.

When introducing Max to the Thunderdome crowd, Dr. Dealgood calls him "The Man with No Name". This is a reference to Clint Eastwood's character in Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns," particularly Per un pugno di dollari (1964), where his character also enters a town as a drifter and plays the two ruling factions against each other for profit.

Scenes filmed but cut from the final film:
  • Max comforting the dying Ghekko while facing Bartertown from the desert dunes and telling him it's "Tomorrow morrow land”"(this scene can be glimpsed in the Tina Turner video for We Don't Need Another Hero);
  • Max waking in Crack in Earth in the middle of the night and remembering his wife Jessie and crying, realizing he is no better than the people he has hunted for so long.
