Continuity mistake: In the scene where Frank is in the driving school car chasing the doctor, right after Frank says, "I know a shortcut. Turn left here", we see two brief shots of the doctor's car, one from the inside of the car and the other from the outside as he is turning around a corner. In both shots the rear window is shattered. However, it is only four shots later that Frank shoots at the doctor's car, shattering the then intact rear window. (00:31:45)

Trivia

There is a trailer to this movie with an additional gag. After Ludwig has demonstrated his image of an ideal assassin to Papshmir, he sits down with the revolver used in the demonstration which had turned out to be empty. In the trailer shot (in a closeup of Montalban) the gun unexpectantly goes off.
