The unconventional love story of an aspiring actress, her ambitious driver, and their eccentric boss, the legendary billionaire Howard Hughes.
You make an old guy courageous, Marla...
Marla Mabrey: Is that a compliment, Howard ?
Howard Hughes: You're not calling me Mr. Hughes... Makes me feel so much younger.
In one scene, Howard and Harlan discuss the fact that Marla is the only RKO contract girl with the initials MM. Later in the film, however, we learned that Mamie's last name also begins with the letter M.
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.
