Other mistake: When Arthur is in the bath tub, Hobson brings him a martini on a tray. Arthur grabs the glass. It shoots over to Hobson then back to Arthur and he picks up the glass again without even putting it down.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Linda is in the car with Bitterman, she says, "Oh, here comes Mrs. Nezbeth..." While she is saying that in that shot, she turns around and looks out the rear window of the car. In the next couple of shots, outside of the car, Mrs. Nezbeth is coming from the opposite direction Linda looked.

Trivia: John Belushi was the first choice to play Arthur. Belushi thought the script was excellent but he turned down the role as he had already played a hard-drinking guy in ‘Animal House', and feared being typecast as a substance abuser.
