Final theatrical film of Lewis Martin.
Police Captain Robert Rennedon:
Murderers. They're all the same. Humanity would be much better off without them.
When Odette goes to lock her apartment door after her husband storms out, the camera moves in on the doorknob and key, then Simon pushes the door open. No corresponding plate or bolt for the lock and key is visible on the door edge, revealing there is no lock at all. This is a common shortcut used by set carpenters.
Opening credits are revealed by a knife cutting through red fabric.
