In the editing suite scene, the female editor is seen smoking as she operates the editing machine. Since the film is set in the early 50's, the film would have been nitrate which was highly inflammable. Potentially, the whole studio could have burnt down. In 1951, film production was transitioning away from nitrate to safety (non-flammable) film stock. The fact that only one frame is burns indicates that the editor was working with safety film. Had it been nitrate, the entire reel would probably have caught fire.
The movie's title "Hail, Caesar!" appears onscreen as the title of the biblical epic that Eddie is watching in dailies.
