Continuity mistake: After Garfield has finished his speech at the stock holder's meeting, he returns to his chair and crosses his legs. They cut away and then quickly cut back to him in a long shot and he crosses his legs again in the exact same manner.

Trivia: Jorgy was based on Malcolm Baldridge, a prominent New England industrialist who served as Ronald Reagan's first Secretary of Commerce - right down to the moustache.

Trivia: When you first meet Kate, she states how ironic it is that she is Jorgy's lawyer fighting for him to save his company. The movie never explains why that is ironic. If you read the play this movie is based on, you will understand that Kate's mother cheated on her father to be with Jorgy, and their life was completely absorbed by that New England company that Kate hated.

Trivia: The movie featured Garfield eating a lot of doughnuts. He actually doesn't eat junk food - the doughnuts he ate were special-ordered from a health-food company that were low-fat, no sugar, and weren't fried.


Lawrence Garfield: When capitalism gets f - -ed up, the communists come back. They're waiting in the bushes. First thing they do is shoot the lawyers.

Lawrence Garfield: Gotta be hungry to eat a donut? I never heard of such a thing.

Lawrence Garfield: I love money. I love money more than the things it can buy. There's only one thing I love more than money. You know what that is? other PEOPLE'S money.
