** 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!"]]
** Also, just when it seems like Hughes has gotten over his mental issues at the end of the film, the sight of a pair of men in germ-resistant suits [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin causes him]] [[DownerEnding to relapse]].

* NoEnding: As men in black suits start walking towards him (or at least he ''thinks'' they're walking towards him) he starts saying "The way of the future" repeatedly. Brief flashback, then he says "the way of the future" a few more times. Roll credits.

The story, which takes place smack in the middle of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfHollywood, documents Hughes's production of the films ''Film/HellsAngels'' and ''The Outlaw'', his efforts to establish and grow Trans World Airlines and to develop reconnoissance and troop-transport aircraft for the Army Air Forces during World War II, his relationships with Hepburn and Gardner, and his ever-worsening obsessive-compulsive disorder. It won five out of eleven AcademyAward nominations, including Best Supporting Actress (Blanchett).

* 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.
