Trivia

According to Orson Welles, the nightclub set was available after another film had wrapped and that filming took 10 to 12 days to complete. For these scenes Welles had Dorothy Comingore's throat sprayed with chemicals to give her voice a harsh, raspy tone.

Goofs

When Mr. Thatcher has Mrs. Kane sign the contract at Mrs. Kane's Boarding House, Mrs. Kane goes over the closed window and opens it. In the first shot, the window could only be raised to the height of Mrs. Kane's shoulders, but in the second, it is above her head.


Crazy Credits

In a very rare move the director's credit is shown on the same card as the cinematographer's. This was Orson Welles's personal decision to show his thanks to cinematographer Toland for his enormous contributions to the film, meaning equal rights.
