The movie begins with a "1964" dateline and later has a "five years before" card on screen. At one point, a radio broadcast informs listeners that the Brooklyn Dodgers will soon be moving to Los Angeles. By 1959 they had already done so and in fact played the Chicago White Sox in the World Series that year.
The end credits contain the standard disclaimer that all characters are fictional. But Howard Hughes, as well as his aides Noah Dietrich (played by Martin Sheen) and Robert Maheu (Alec Baldwin) are real people.
