Factual error: Dr. Lecktor's cell has the hinges on the inside of the cell. They should be on the outside so Lecktor can't compromise them.

Factual error: When Reba is in the darkroom with Dollarhyde she mentions that he speaks very well but avoids fricatives and sibilants. In linguistics sibilants are a form of fricative and Reba would have known that since she'd obviously studied linguistics. The writers likely meant that he just avoids sibilants (to avoid sounding homosexual) but wanted it to sound more technical. Sibilants in English are the 's' in "see", 'sh' in "shout", 'z' in "zoo", and the 's' in "pleasure". Fricatives would include sibilants as well as the 'f' in "fine", 'v' in "vine", 'th' in "that", and 'th' in "thing" (01:17:30)

Trivia: In the final confrontation between Dollarhyde and Graham, Tom Noonan had to lie in a pool of stage blood for several hours as the crew worked on other shots. After all this time, the stage blood dried into a thick, cement-like adhesive that all but fused Noonan to the carpet.
