Following the death of a publishing tycoon, news reporters scramble to discover the meaning of his final utterance.
To keep studio execs off his back, Orson Welles claimed the cast and crew were "in rehearsal" during the first few days of shooting, when in fact they were actually shooting the film. It took a number of days before the studio caught on.

When the photographer at the party snaps the photograph of the former-Chronicle-now-Inquirer reporters, he is standing much too close to capture them all inside of the frame. At that distance (about 3 feet) he would only be able to capture about 3-4 of the men sitting there.
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.
