In New Jersey in 1935, a movie character walks off the screen and into the real world.
Cecilia (Mia Farrow) mentions Okay America! (1932) while discussing Lew Ayres' career with her sister (played by Farrow's real life sister Stephanie Farrow). The female lead of Okay America! (1932) was the Farrows' mother Maureen O'Sullivan.
Oh Cecilia, be careful! You all right?
Theater Manager: You're gonna like this one, it's better than last week's, more romantic.
Although the film is set in 1935, the "inner" film has no specific date so the reference to the Copacobana Club, which opened in 1940, could simply be forward thinking by the director of the inner film. Also Tom remarks in New York that 24 hours previously he was in Egypt. It would be many years after 1935 that he could have done that journey so quickly by air.
Alexander Cohen's name is listed as "Alexander H. Cohen" in the opening credits, although the middle initial is dropped in the end credits.
