Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): Dr. Einstein stumbles and falls into the window seat in the dark. He strikes a match, and the wire that is powering the flickering light in the palm of his hand is clearly visible trailing out from his sleeve.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Rooney arrives at the Brewster home late in the movie, the other cops all address him as "Lieutenant". However, a few minutes later. Mortimer addresses him as "Captain" and even introduces him to Mr. Witherspoon as "Captain Rooney".
  • Some 20 years before filming this movie, actress Jean Adair had helped to nurse a very sick vaudeville performer named Archie Leach back to health; by the time she was asked to reprise her Broadway "Arsenic and Old Lace" role as Aunt Martha for this film, Adair and Leach, now known as Cary Grant, were old friends.
  • Cary Grant donated his entire salary, $100,000, to the U.S. War Relief Fund.
