In the first few minutes of the movie there is a drive up a road to the Hollywoodland sign. The road ends at a sightseeing/tourist spot and parking area at the foot of the "H." In reality the road passes behind the sign and above it on the hill. The hillside at the "H" is too steep for a road/parking area and there are no traces of one ever having been there.
At the premiere of "The Buccaneer", the announcer (Bill Baldwin) says that the film stars Fredric March, Anthony Quinn, Douglas Dumbrille, Walter Brennan and Beulah Bondi, as if the last four actors named all had star billing. In reality, Quinn was a little-known 23-year-old at the start of his career and, like Dumbrille, Brennan and Bondi, had what was very much a supporting role. The most prominently-billed actors after March in the title role were Franciska Gaal, Akim Tamiroff and Margot Grahame.
