In the scene where Joe (George Burns) is looking through his old photos and other memorabilia, he looks at a photo of a young couple - presumably Joe and his wife - and it makes him start to cry. The photo is actually a picture of George Burns and his real (late) wife Gracie Allen. They were a famous show business team from vaudeville through early television. She died in 1964. See more
In at least two scenes early in the movie, the microphone cables attached to the characters are visible. Both of the scenes show the three stars photographed from a distance with a telephoto lens as they walk toward the camera. They are walking on very crowded sidewalks. Look at Art Carney when he is on our right in one scene and you will plainly see the wire that is attached to his lapel microphone as it is easy to spot through his transparent shirt. It goes from his belt up to where it disappears inside his jacket. In a later scene still early in the movie George Burns has a very visible mic cable outline leading up to his lapel inside his jacket. George is on the left wearing a blue jacket. See more
