Trivia: Network
  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: The actual line from Howard Beale's rant is "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Often misquoted as "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!" Also, Beale doesn't shout it out the window; only his viewers do, although their wording differs slightly... which makes this case of Beam Me Up, Scotty! understandable.
  • Fake American: Australian Peter Finch as Howard Beale.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Amusingly, You can spot a young Perry White among UBS's news staff.
