Trivia: When Ed Wood meets Orson Wells, Orson tells Ed that the studio wants Charlton Heston to play a Mexican in one of his films. He is referring to his film Touch of Evil, which was in pre-production at that time. In it, Charlton Heston played Roman Miguel Vargas, a Mexican.

Trivia: Martin Landau became the first Oscar winning actor to win for playing another actor.

Continuity mistake: At the wrap party for "Bride of the Atom," when Dolores starts screaming at Ed "These movies are TERRIBLE!" her hair is curled in ringlets that hang down to the tops of her shoulders. She then stalks out of the warehouse, and Ed follows her. When he catches up to her in the parking lot, and she tells him she is leaving him, you can clearly see that her hair is suddenly much shorter and curlier.
