Trivia

The character of "Charles Higgam" is an obvious parody of the Anglo-Australian journalist Charles Higham, who wrote two defamatory books about Orson Welles (in one of which he complained about this parody). People connected with this film have also hinted that the character of "Juliet Rich' is an unflattering depiction of another Orson Welles attacker, film critic Pauline Kael. See more »

Trivia Facts
25 December 2006 | by (arizona) – See all my reviews

In his Arizona-published book, THANKS FOR TUNING IN, author Richard Ruelas contends that performers Bill Thompson and Pat McMahon (from Arizona's fabled WALLACE AND LADMO SHOW) have bit parts in the film. Welles had shot his footage in Phoenix. IMDb may want to add them to the cast list.

The legal disputes involving Welles' daughter are sad. She seems to be one of those people who wants to own something no one else has or has access to. I've lost hope the issue will ever be resolved, and we likely will never see the footage. I hope I'm wrong. Not only for fans of Orson Welles, but even for fans of John Huston, who was always great in his acting appearances.

Huston has an interesting account of the shooting in his 1979 memoirs, AN OPEN BOOK.
