* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Lonesome Rhodes, at least in his public persona, appears to be something of an amalgam of Will Rogers and Arthur Godfrey. Godfrey had already inspired the 1956 film ''The Great Man'', directed by and starring Jose Ferrer.

** Griffith said years later that the direction that Kazan gave him for that scene was to mentally "fuck her" and his lecherous, leering smile was the result.

-->'''Mel:''' Suppose I tell you exactly what's gonna happen to you. You're gonna be back in television. Only it won't be quite the same as it was before. There'll be a reasonable cooling-off period and then somebody will say: "Why don't we try him again in a inexpensive format. People's memories aren't too long." And you know, in a way, he'll be right. Some of the people will forget, and some of them won't. Oh, you'll have a show. Maybe not the best hour or, you know, top 10. Maybe not even in the top 35. But you'll have a show. It just won't be quite the same as it was before. Then a couple of new fellas will come along. And pretty soon, a lot of your fans will be flocking around them. And then one day, somebody'll ask: "Whatever happened to, ah, whatshisname? You know, the one who was so big. The number-one fella a couple of yeares ago. He was famous. How can we forget a name like that? Oh by the way, have you seen, ah, Barry Mills? I think he's the greatest thing since Will Rogers."
