Allusions (2)

  • Jimmy: I wanted a place just like Xanadu but without such the dorky name.

    Xanadu was the name of Charles Foster Kane's vast estate in the movie Citizen Kane (1941). Since the character of Kane is partially based on newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, it is safe to say that Xanadu is in turn based on Hearst's estate San Simeon.

  • Bill's butler Cadbury shares his name with Richie Rich's butler.
