Trivia

Orson Welles actually knew William Randolph Hearst and his mistress, Marion Davies, the two figures that Citizen Kane (1941) essentially lampoons. Both co-writer Herman J. Mankiewicz and cinematographer Gregg Toland had been ejected from one of Hearst's famous parties at his elaborate homestead San Simeon for excessive drinking.
