Double Indemnity picture

Factual error: There's a scene when Barbara Stanwyck hides behind an open door to avoid beeing seen by Edward G.Robinson leaving Fred MacMurray`s apartment. To make this possible the apartment door opens outside into the corridor, which is an elegant solution for this situation in the movie. But in the real world no apartment door would open by swinging into the corridor because this would give a visitor standing there a punch on the nose when the resident opens the door.

Gaslight picture

Factual error: The gasolier, gas light fixture, in the entryway to Paula's aunt's mansion is the type/form that would have been used in a room, not in a hallway. The gasolier in the mansion bedroom used by Gregory Anton, Charles Boyer, is the type/form that would have been used in a hall and would not have been used in a bedroom.
