* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: William Randolph Hearst, on whom the title character is based, was not happy when he heard about the film. Instead of railing against it and ordering his newspapers to trash it, he instead ordered them to make no mention of it whatsoever. This is credited for helping it to perform far below expectations in theaters.

* CreatorKiller: Had it not been for the controversy with William Randolph Hearst, Welles might have had a smoother Hollywood career. However, Welles himself stated that it was the disaster of ''Film/TheMagnificentAmbersons'' that really ruined his Hollywood career.
