    • The character of Jedediah Leland was chiefly based on a real-life drama critic, Ashton Stevens, who had been a friend of Orson Welles's family. The character of Mr. Bernstein takes his name (though little else) from Dr. Maurice Bernstein, who was the Welles family doctor when Orson Welles was a child and later became his guardian after both his parents had died. Everett Sloane, who plays Mr. Bernstein, bore quite a noticeable facial resemblance to the doctor.
