Goofs

  • It is possible that all "mistakes" in the film that involve visible equipment are intentional, or at least intentionally uncorrected: the film, after all, is about the artificiality of making a film, and the initial credit sequence shows filmmakers shooting the film itself.

Quotes

    • Jerry Prokosch: Whenever I hear the word "culture," I bring out my checkbook.
    • [to his assistant]
    • Jerry Prokosch: Come here.
    • [he places his checkbook on his assistant's back and writes out a check]
    • Fritz Lang: Some years ago - some horrible years ago - the Nazis used to take out a pistol instead of a checkbook.
