The Robert Carter character, who makes short, humorous films, represents Robert Benchley, whose 1935 film, How to Sleep, won Best Short Subject in 1935. Fitzgerald met Sheilah Graham at a party at Robert Benchley's apartment near Fitzgerald's in the Garden of Allah apartment building. Benchley was an American humorist who began working on films in 1925, and made a number of short films for MGM and Paramount during the 1930s similar to the one in character Robert Carter's scene in Beloved Infidel. During the 1920s, he was a member of the Algonquin Round Table in New York, and an editor and columnist for The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and New York World.
