  • Trivia

    • Apparently, John Carter never told Mr. Anderson that Lou was a little person, because Anderson seemed surprised when he saw Lou for the first time. The 1880's were not as progressive as now (and in fact, even now, in the 21st century, it's unlikely that a person in Lou's position wouldn't be stared at in public and in the workplace). Though John seems like a person who would not judge another person by their outward appearance, it's unrealistic that John would completely omit that information when he recommended Lou to Anderson.
