  • Lana Turner plays an actor whose career started as a movie extra. Turner started her own career as an extra in Star Is Born, A (1937).
  • Kirk Douglas stands no more than 5'7" and wears super high lifts that almost distort his walking. If you look closely at him in long shots you can spot the lifts (it's really apparent in "Seven Days in May").
  • The scenes showing the production of the fictional low budget horror film was based on how Val Lewton produced _Cat People (1942)_.
