When Jon Hamm was in the auditioning stages for Don Draper, creator Matt Weiner guessed that Hamm, like Don, was not raised by his own parents. In real life, Hamm's mother died of colon cancer when he was 10, after which he largely lived with his grandmother. In addition, when Hamm was 20 his father also passed away.

IBM Selectric IIs are shown used in the offices. They weren't available until the 1970s. Mad Men takes place in the 60s.

Q
Why did Don pay the elevator operator to say that the elevator was broken?
A
In the season one episode "Red in the Face", Roger makes a drunken pass at Betty after a dinner party. As revenge, Don arranges a lunch where he and Roger down copious amounts of alcohol and eat equally heroic amounts of shellfish. When they get back to the office, the elevator operator (as per Don's instructions) says that the elevator is out of order, forcing them to climb the many flights of stairs to the Sterling Cooper offices. The combination of oysters, booze, and vigorous labor make Roger sick and he ends up puking in front of some clients.
Q
How come no one can tell that Sal is gay?
A
It seems obvious to most viewers that Salvatore Romano, or Sal (Bryan Batt) is gay, yet the only one who seems to pick up on this is the one executive from Belle Jolie who is also gay. During the time period in which the character appears (1960-1963), gay culture was a far less prominent part of the culture than it is today. Furthermore, in the early sixties the kind of debonair sophisticate behavior which Sal exhibits had not yet become associated exclusively with homosexual men.
Q
What is Duck Phillips' role at the end of season six?
A
In season six, Duck is working as an independent head hunter connecting prospective employers and employees. We see Pete talk to Duck early in the season when he's disatisfied with Sterling-Cooper. In the season finale, Duck accompanies a client to Sterling Cooper to interview for Don's job.
