In the film, Baum is shown as an extra in Hamlet when the theater burns down. In reality, Baum had played Hamlet on numerous occasions, and the play being performed the night of the fire was an original work by Baum titled Matches - all known copies of the script and other Baum originals were destroyed in that fire. Baum was performing in another theater the night of the fire, but he owned the one that burned. See more
