    1. Alfred Hitchcock
    2. Stanley Kubrick
    3. David Fincher
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Alfred Hitchcock

    The titles pay homage to graphic designer Saul Bass’s skyscraper-filled opening titles for Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest (1959) and falling man movie poster for Vertigo (1958); Weiner has listed Hitchcock as a major influence on the visual style of the series.

  6. 6 Which Beatles song featured in the series?

    1. Tomorrow Never Knows
    2. Blackbird
    3. Inner Light

    Wrong!

    Tomorrow Never Knows

    Weiner paid big bucks to close out that “Lady Lazarus” episode, spending $250,000 to license the rights to The Beatles’s “Tomorrow Never Knows”—which was a small price to pay for authenticity.

    Zou Bisou Bisou

    The show managed to score their #1 on the World Digital Song Sales chart during the season premiere of season 5, in which Don's new wife Megan serenades her husband in front of his 50th birthday party guests. The scene was an introduction to Megan as we didn't really know much about her as a person at this point and Weiner really wanted to emphasis how different she was from the rest of the characters right off the bat.
