Corrected entry: During the dinner party, Philip crushes a glass in his hand, and we see that his hand is cut and bloody before he wraps a piece of cloth around it. Later on, when Mrs. Atwater reads his palms, not only is there no bandage, but there is also no blood or sign of a cut on his hand.

Correction: There is a small red cut under around his thumb. It can be seen after Mrs. Atwater lets go of his hands.

Continuity mistake: When David is killed in the very first scene, the two men lay him neatly in the big chest, the rope does not hang out the side. But then one man bends over and discovers the rope halfway hanging out of the side of the chest. Plus it was knotted around David's neck anyway, so couldn't have been yanked out, it would have had to be untied.

Brandon: The good Americans usually die young on the battlefield, don't they? Well, the Davids of this world merely occupy space, which is why he was the perfect victim for the perfect murder. Course he, uh, he was a Harvard undergraduate. That might make it justifiable homicide.

Trivia: At first, this film seems to have only one scene and two shots, one outside and another inside. Actually, it is divided in a series of 10 minute continuous shots, 10 minutes being the maximum duration of filming possible without reloading the camera. Every 10 minutes, the camera zooms on a dark object and then cuts.
