Howard Hughes is a driven man who amassed wealth and recognition as a Hollywood mover and shaker, aviation giant and man of mystery.
Tommy Lee Jones bagged the lead role for $25,000 when Warren Beatty turned down a $1 million paycheck to play the part of Howard Hughes.
What is supposed to be the Hughes XF-11 aircraft is actually a WWII P-38 fighter (however, this is understandable since the real XF-11 would have been unavailable for the movie).
After the closing credits there is a short News Of The Day newsreel about the Spruce Goose including footage of the real Howard Hughes
