Toby Jones's character Arthur P. Jacobs, Marilyn Monroe's then publicist, later became well known as the producer of Doctor Dolittle (1967), Planet of the Apes (1968) and its sequels and Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969).

The notebook that Arthur Miller wrote and that Marilyn was seen crying over is most likely his initial draft of his play "After the Fall", which features a character that was a parody of Monroe. The play remains one of Miller's most unpopular works.

In the opening sequence, Marilyn appears singing "Heat Wave" in the screen of a movie theater. She sang that Irving Berlin song in There's No Business Like Show Business with a totally different set and costumes.

The beauty spot on Marilyn's face is missing in one scene and moves from the left to the right side of her face in at least one scene.

On Colin and Lucy's first date (dancing in the nightclub), the image is briefly transposed (seen in the musicians' positions on the stage and the bassist's temporary left-handedness).
