When Jake first goes to Mr. Mulwray's office and lets himself in to search it (at 20 minutes), he looks through the desk's drawers. Upon opening the third drawer (the drawer before the empty one), a magnifying glass is visible (as is the red toiletries box he will remove). The camera cuts to his face, and when it returns to the drawer, the magnifying glass is suddenly covered by a booklet reading "Alexandria- Los Angeles". It was not there originally, but after appearing, it remains until the drawer is closed.
The film opens with the 1940's Paramount logo.
