Boom mic visible 

At the end of the movie, when only Marlowe and Velma are in the living room, talking, and Marlowe is walking around the couch, when he is between the couch and fireplace, the large shadow of a boom mic appears over the fireplace. It starts at the upper left and goes to center left. This is easily visible even in non-letterbox viewings.
