A Hollywood fixer in the 1950s works to keep the studio's stars in line.
The name of the movie studio in Blake Edwards' earlier film S.O.B. (1981) was called "Capitol Studios" it being a similar name to the Coen Brothers' fictional film studio of "Capitol Pictures" in both Hail, Caesar! (2016) and Barton Fink (1991).
Mary Jo was a guest at a costume party. This isn't even her dirndl.
When Eddie's secretary tells Eddie that he has a call on line 2, Eddie picks up the telephone handset but does not press the line 2 button. The last call Eddie had on that telephone was on line 1, so he still would have been using line 1 on that line 2 call.
The movie's title "Hail, Caesar!" appears onscreen as the title of the biblical epic that Eddie is watching in dailies.
