The true story of the influential and controversial columnist, Walter Winchell.
The character of Dallas Wayne is a fictionalized version of real-life Winchell confidante and speakeasy owner Texas Guinan.
But he's HITLER! You're only Walter Winchell.
Walter Winchell: That's where you're wrong. I'm Walter Winchell, he's only Hitler.
Near the end of the film there is a shot of two newspaper headlines: one saying Winchell lost his radio show and the other that the Stork Club was closing. The articles under the headlines do not refer to either subject, and most of the wording in one article is repeated exactly in the other.
Richard Kent Green was Stanley Tucci's stand-in for both the Central Park scenes in New York and the photo shoot for the poster.
