Trivia / The Royal Tenenbaums

  • Deleted Scene: The DVD includes a brief scene where we get to meet Eli's family. His wife is an artist and the scene ends with a full frontal shot of a naked woman who is posing for her.
  • Hostility on the Set: By all accounts, Gene Hackman did not get along well with Wes Anderson, prompting the majority of the rest of the cast and crew to come to Anderson's defense whenever Hackman acted up.
  • Real-Life Relative: Richie and Eli who desperately wanted to be a Tenenbaum are, of course, real-life brothers.
