The character of Bernstein was named after Orson Welles' guardian Dr. Maurice Bernstein, a Kenosha (WI) surgeon who became close to the Welles family after having treated Orson Welles' grandmother in her final illness.
Charles Foster Kane:
During the picnic scene towards the end, Welles had to shoot against a back-projection because a location shoot was too costly and time-consuming. The stock footage used for the exterior was taken from King Kong, hence on closer inspection the four birds that fly by are in fact very definite pterodactyls. RKO told Welles to take the pterodactyls out of the shot, but he liked them, and decided to keep them.
The film's opening title card is presented in complete silence, briefly with no music.
