(4 votes)

Rupert Cadell (Stewart) does find out that Brandon and Philip killed David when he finally opens the trunk and sees David's body. Disappointed with his two former students, Cadell takes the gun, which he wrestled from Philip after he tried to kill Cadell with it once Cadell figured out the whole murder scheme, and shoots it several times outside the window which grabs the attention of the police and neighbors. Cadell, Brandon and Philip all wait in the apartment as the police are now on their way there.

Big Evil

Continuity mistake: 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.

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

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.
