Dave is deaf, and Wally is blind. They witness a murder, but it was Dave who was looking at her, and Wally who was listening.
The car driven by Wally's sister is the relatively-rare Volvo 780 Bertone.
These streets are bumpy.
Dave: You're driving on the sidewalk!
When Dave falls off the car that rolls down the hill by the Sutherland estate, the stuntman who did the fall lands with his right leg bent and his left leg straight, but when the camera cuts to Gene Wilder on the ground, his left leg is bent and his right leg is straight.
There are 2 versions of this movie that only differ in their aspect ratios. The proper theatrical aspect ratio of the film is 1:85: 1. However, when it was broadcast on TV in the 90s in many countries, the version shown was 1:33: 1, adapted to the TV screen format of that time. This means that, in this TV version, picture was lost on the left and right side of the image but it was gained at the top and bottom of the screen, and this is the version that was also released on VHS at that time. There is a famous shower scene about 1 hour and 11 minutes into the movie, which is probably the most conspicuously affected by this change of format. In the 1:85: 1 version of this scene, the actress' breasts are not visible, while in the 1:33: 1 VHS/TV version, we can see her naked upper torso, including her nipples.
