When Carlos Rodriguez asks Rigby Reardon where he's staying, Reardon replies, "Hotel Guano". "Guano" is Spanish for "dung", specifically the dung of sea birds and cave-dwelling bats.
Captain Carlos Rodriguez:
Where are you staying?
Rigby Reardon: Hotel Guano.
When Rigby is sitting in a chair with a drink while talking with Huberman (Ingrid Bergman)the film was reversed during editing resulting in Rigby appearing as a mirror image. Specifically, holding the glass in his right hand with his breast pocket and pocket square appearing on the right hand side of his suit, instead of the correct, left side. Between cuts, the image reverts to normal.
There is a spelling mistake with the Composer. In the credits at the beginning he is spelled: Miklos Rosza. In the credits after the end he is spelled correct: Miklos Rozsa.
