An excerpt of Welles' 1930s War of the Worlds broadcast was recreated for this film, however none of the dialogue heard in the film actually matches what was originally broadcast.
Actress Oja Kodar, who appears in a muse-like fashion in this film, was Welles' real-life girlfriend at the time.
Hidden within a montage of footage of Howard Hughes is one brief shot of a man disembarking from a ship who looks similar to Hughes, but is actually actor2 Don Ameche.
Wells filmed a trailer that lasted for almost five minutes and featured several shots of a topless Oja Kodar. The trailer was rejected in the US as it was deemed to long and over-indulgent.
