** This is Juan Trippe's reaction to the airline bill about to be defeated in the Senate and thus Pan Am's monopoly being finished, only instead of "Oh crap", he says, [[PrecisionFStrike "Fuck!"]]

* RomanceOnTheSet: In universe. The film depicts Creator/KatharineHepburn and Spencer Tracy hooking up on a movie set while she's still in a relationship with Howard; [[RuleOfDrame in reality]], she and Howard had already broken up.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Not entirely, since the movie does show Hughes' possessive nature, his paranoid wire tapping of Ava Gardner and his obsessive nature but it plays down a lot of Hughes' shadier and sleazier side and frames him as a ByronicHero. Likewise, the film stops in the late 40s, right before Hughes enters his darkest phase (the purchase of Creator/RKOStudios and his hermetic retreat). Some critics have noted that the film is a movie about Hughes as he might have made a movie about himself.
