Did you know?
Jane Alexander's Oscar-nominated performance amounts to little more than 8 minutes screentime.

Screenwriter William Goldman was called to an impromptu meeting with Redford (the film's producer) along with Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. At that time, Goldman's draft of the screenplay had been accepted and they were waiting on hearing from Woodward and Bernstein. At the meeting, they presented Goldman with a new screenplay - written by Bernstein, and then girlfriend Nora Ephron. Goldman refused to read the screenplay (for legal reasons) and walked out of the meeting. Only one scene from that screenplay ends up in the final version of the film: a scene where Bernstein outsmarts a secretary to get in to see someone. This scene was pure fiction - it did not happen in real life. (Woodward was allegedly unhappy with Bernstein's script as well, because it depicted Woodward as a naive novice reporter and worshipper of Bernstein's superior talent. Woodward later called Goldman to apologize for the incident, telling him, "I don't know what the six worst things I've ever done in my life are, but letting that happen, letting them write that, is one of them.")

Above the desk of Carl Bernstein is a large button with the "Baltimore Bullets", NBA logo. The Baltimore Bullets did not move to the Washington D.C. area until the October 1974 season. The film covers the period from June 1972 until the January 1973. Displaying support for a sports team from the city of Baltimore would have been considered gauche by the district's sports fans in the early-1970s.

After calling the White House asking for Howard Hunt, Redford/Woodward calls the Mullen Company where he was told by Charles Colson's secretary he also worked. The insert of him dialing the phone shows the number ending in 1414 which is the number he previously called to get the White House.

In the first note to Woodward from Deep Throat, he says to meet at 2 AM in the garage. Woodward takes a cab and gets out in front of the Kennedy Center to switch taxis. At that time, there is a crowd of people leaving the Kennedy Center, as if leaving a performance. No performance at the Kennedy Center would have gone that late.

Ken Clawson: Please, listen, now, if you're going to refer to that alleged conversation with Sally Aiken, you can't print that it took place in her apartment. I have a wife and a family and a dog and a cat. Ben Bradlee: A wife and a family and a dog and a cat. Right, Ken, right, yeah. Uh, Ken, I don't want to print that you were in Sally's apartment...
