Rosemary's Baby

Trivia: This is the very spot at the Dakota building on 72nd Street in New York City where John Lennon was murdered. (00:02:00)

????

Trivia: The bystanders looking at the camera when Rosemary crosses the street were staring in disbelief as Mia Farrow actually wandered out into oncoming traffic! Polanski did not want to "stage" the scene, so she was literally risking her life.

Trivia: The director, Roman Polanski, started the trend of an actor walking into a room and then going to the left, or right, and disappearing behind a wall and the audience when they first saw this shifted to their right, or left, so they could see around the corner. I don't think the director expected this but it did happen.

Continuity mistake: Rosemary quick fries half a piece of stake but by the time it gets from the frying pan into her plate it's a different piece without the chunk of fat attached to the side. (01:01:15)

Question: What is the name of the melody that Mia Farrow sings (La La La Laaaa, La La La Lalala La Laaaaa) at the beginning of the movie, as the title/credits are being displayed?

Shipper

Chosen answer: It doesn't have a specific title. It was a lullaby written for the film by Krzysztof Komeda. There's a few variations of the lullaby heard throughout the film, the opening credits version is listed as "Rosemary's Baby Main Theme - Vocal."
