Trivia

Raymond Chandler, who knew nothing about screenwriting or filmmaking and had never been in a studio before this film, did not care for Billy Wilder. He thought the director spoke too fast, was too jumpy and was disrespectful because he wore a baseball cap indoors.


Quotes

Building attendant: Well, hello there, Mr. Neff.


Goofs

The door to Neff's apartment opens away from, rather than toward, the apartment. This was a violation of the Los Angeles Fire Code. (Billy Wilder knew this, but could not change the door because of the crucial scene where Phyllis is hiding behind the door in the hallway.)


Crazy Credits

Opening credits are shown over a silhouette of a man on crutches, walking toward the camera.
