* Howard Hughes' court hearing at the end. I'm not sure if the real Howard had as spectacular a hearing as in the movie.
** Actually, he did. Some of the quotes (like the one that includes "I will leave this country and never come back--and I mean it!") come directly from the transcript of the hearing. Further proof that Howard was basically a moment of awesome incarnate.
* OneSceneWonder [[ErrolFlynn Errol Flynn]] starting a fight at a party. He steels a man's chair and the man throws a snowball at him in retaliation. Words are exchanged and the man calls him a limey bastard. Flynn corrects him - hes a ''Tazmanian'' bastard, thank you very much - then punches him down. When the man gets up and comes after him he knocks him down again, despite being held back and having another man between them.
* Hughes calling out the Hepburns for talking a big game about socialism when they have a ton of money themselves.
* Hughes in a plane filming a dogfight, and simply pulling out another camera when his zeal for a closeup gets his first one destroyed.
