When Gittes takes Evelyn's letter from his pocket in the restaurant, the envelope has ECM in the corner. He asks her what the C stands for. However, in the sequel The Two Jakes, he looks at the letter again and at the top of the letter is printed "Evelyn Cross Mulwray". This means he would have already known when C stood for and there was no need to ask.
The film opens with the 1940's Paramount logo.
