Double Indemnity

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.

Factual error: In the 1944 movie 'Double Indemnity', it is established at the beginning that the story is taking place in 1938. During the confrontation between Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck at her house near the end of the movie, the poignant strains of 'Tangerine', a song written in 1941, could be heard through an open window.
