Trivia

According to Thelma Ritter, Alfred Hitchcock never told actors if he liked what they did in a scene, and if he didn't like it, "he looked like he was going to throw up."

Goofs

At around 52 minutes: When Jeff's nurse goes to the door saying she's going to find out the name of the freight carrier that is taking off with the trunk, someone who sounds nothing like James Stewart has dubbed him with the peculiar sounding line "I'll keep an eye on the alley". Jimmy Stewart is holding the binoculars over his mouth but we can see that he's not moving his lips! Prior to that, when he says "don't do anything foolish" his lips are still moving after the audio is heard.
