Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Darryl F. Zanuck, Olivia de Havilland, Tyrone Power and Samuel Goldwyn all refused to allow their names to be used in the film, but Billy Wilder decided to use Zanuck's and Power's names anyway. Oddly enough, the reclusive Greta Garbo granted permission to use her name, though when she saw the film itself she was sorry she had done so. She felt that Wilder used her name in a past-tense context, and she was offended.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: When Joe's body is dragged out of the pool and then turned over there are no bullet holes in his clothing, even though he was shot in the chest once and back twice.
  • CAMEO(Hedda Hopper): at the top of the stairwell as Norma descends toward the cameras.
  • Billy Wilder wanted a fresh face for the part of Betty Schaefer. The part was only Nancy Olson's third film appearance.
