Film noir parody with a detective uncovering a sinister plot. Characters from real noirs appear as scenes from various films are intercut.
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.
What do you think?
Juliet Forrest: I think you enjoy dressing up as a woman.
In the scene with the pigeons after Juliet leaves, Rigby says "after a half bottle of bourbon..." and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey is pictured. Jack Daniel's is not bourbon - it never has been and never will be.
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.
