Dealer, Petit Casino:
Ladies and Gentlemen, it is an honor and a distinct pleasure to officially inaugurate the Petit Casino in your esteemed presence. The Petit Casino has taken it upon itself to satisfy in every respect even the most extravagant of your wishes. ...
When Mabuse abducts Dusy Told and places her in his car and departs, wires pulling the car forward can be seen.
The Image Entertainment DVD release of Dr. Mabuse omits several scenes. Between the Stock Market sequence and the beginning of the Folies Bergere sequence, there is a crucial scene of Dr. Mabuse giving a psychological lecture to a society. This establishes Mabuse as a bona fide doctor, and makes his criminality and cruelty all the more perverse.
