A private investigator is hired by a man who calls himself Louis Cyphre to track down a singer named Johnny Favorite. But the investigation takes an unexpected and somber turn.
Singer Johnny Favorite's real name is Liebling, which is commonly used in German for "sweetheart" or "darling" (or angel), but its secondary meaning is "favorite".
Johnny. Johnny. Johnny.
After Harry finds Dr. Fowler dead, he lights a cigarette and the camera shows a close up of the gun in Dr. Fowler's hand, not fully grasped, pointing towards the left side of his body. In the next shot Harry goes to grab the Bible with the ammunition inside, and the gun is now pointing up towards Dr. Fowler.
After the end credits roll, you hear the whisper on a black screen, "Harry? Johnny?"
The American tv version, presumably in order to make up for time lost in editing the controversial sex scene, added footage that was not included in either the R or Unrated versions. The added footage was mostly made up of flashbacks to the war and other various oddities, and actually helped explain some of the more vague points of the movie.
