The French "arthouse" film that Don watches in this episode has not been definitively identified. According to series creator Matthew Weiner, "It's a very rare French film. A film by a famous director. I won't tell you the name. I won't say the title. I'll never tell. Because I don't have the rights to it." The best clue to the film's identity is the poem we hear recited during the excerpt shown: "Ballade des Dames du Temps Jadis" ("Ballad of the Ladies of Times Past"), written by medieval French poet Francois Villon.
