Trivia
Many of the sets, including the exterior of the broadcast building, many of the interior walls, and a biplane buzzing a signal tower, were computer generated.

George Lucas has stated that the two main characters, Roger and Penny Henderson, are actually the parents of Richard Dreyfuss's character from Lucas' American Graffiti (1973); making this film a bit of a semi-prequel.

Goofs
The portrait in Gen. Whalen's office shows the general wearing a service dress green uniform which was not adopted by the U.S. Army until the mid-1950s. In 1939, when the movie is set, the general would have worn a khaki uniform.

When Penny and Roger are first arguing, they go through swinging doors onto the stage. When the cut is made, in the middle of the conversation, they are suddenly in the middle of the stage and the doors are nowhere to be seen.

At the end of the film the camera pans up to the top of the building, showing the damaged WBN logo. However, the holes where the letters came out of the wall are missing.

Claudette: Caught me at a bad time, kid. I'm in.
