Harlan and Donald Edgerton are based on Homer and Langley Collyer, two reclusive brothers who lived in a New York City brownstone and who tragically died there in March 1947. Homer was blind and paralyzed and depended upon his brother to bring him food. Langley was killed when a tunnel of stacked newspapers collapsed on him. Parallels between the real life Collyer and fictional Edgerton brothers include false rumors of great wealth hidden in the home and a vast hoard of accumulated items that included dressmaker's dummies, stacked newspapers and a Model T car. The Collyer Brothers, like the Edgerton Brothers, were what are now termed compulsive hoarders. See more
