- Although it is not identified as such, the musical that Norma and Louise attend is Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake's "Shuffle Along."
- In the film, Louise Brooks wears her hair long until her first dance lesson in New York, after which she cuts it into a bob, ostensibly to stand out from her classmates and/or to be more fashionable, as the flapper style popularized women having shorter hair. In reality, Brooks had worn a bob since she was a child.
- Norma: Men don't like candy that's been unwrapped.

In The Chaperone, Brooks is something of a fixed entity, a fully-formed force of nature already heading toward her peculiar form of glory. She has stuff to do all day — studying by day and partying by night, while Elizabeth McGovern as Norma has time to look inside.
Reviews might be “mixed,” but don’t let that deter you. The Chaperone is a fascinating, exquisitely made film about the early life of sultry silent-screen star Louise Brooks, who traveled from Wichita, Kan., in 1922 to New York City with a proper chaperone named Norma Carlisle.
The Chaperone is case of a not-so-good movie made by people who are unquestionably talented.
