Facts about

James Gleason plays Max Corkle, a character he originated in Here Comes Mr. Jordan (also directed by Alexander Hall and later remade as Heaven Can Wait).
In the newspaper montage, the third item in the Lyons Den column reads: "Save up your gas money and go over to Danny McGuire's place in Brooklyn. You'll see the current Vanity cover in the flesh."

After Kitty (Rita Hayworth) and Danny (Larry Parks) finish their fight about how the information in the play is all wrong, Hayworth picks up a snow globe from a table and throws it at a mirror. It is the same snow globe that Charles Foster Kane drops when he dies in Citizen Kane. Charles Foster Kane was played by Orson Welles, who was Hayworth's husband at the time.
