Trivia: There are 7 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Dudley Moore was said to have based his performance partly on Peter Cook, whose excessive drinking had soured his and Moore's comedic partnership in the '70s.
- There's a framed photo of Harry S. Truman on Arthur's father's desk. The other photo, to the left of Harry S. Truman, is that of Winston Churchill, and it appears to be autographed.
- Bud Cort was originally suggested for the role of Arthur.
