Facts about

Because Orson Welles was having tax problems during the production, at the end of shooting his salary for the movie was garnisheed by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. This upset Welles so much that just before he finished looping his dialogue in post-production, he stormed off the studio and left the country. All that was left to be looped was the last 20 seconds of his end speech in the courtroom. Incredibly, editor William Reynolds fixed this problem without needing Welles. Reynolds took words and pieces of words Welles had spoken earlier in the movie, and pieced them one by one into those 20 seconds.
Average Shot Length & Median Shot Length = ~11 seconds.
During his closing arguments speech Jonathan Wilk (Orson Welles) mentions that he has practiced law for 44-45 years. Welles, however, was only 43 years old when the movie was made.
