Vertigo

Revealing mistake: In the final scene in the belltower you can see shadows from the surrounding trees. That's because this scene was shot at 3 in the afternoon. They just used a filter to make it look like it was night.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene, parts of Madeleine's hair come undone in the struggle inside the bell tower stairwell. At the top of the tower, before she falls, her hair is in perfect shape again.

Midge: An aircraft engineer down the peninsula designed it; he worked it out in his spare time.
