Did You Know?
In the St. Petersburg Florida Evening Independent newspaper on August 10, 1944, the following was noted: "There will be no more shattered eardrums for movie sound men. Movie ammunition has at last gone on the subdued side. After exhausting its pre-war supply of blank cartridges, Columbia Studio laid in a supply of the new wartime restricted type for scenes in which gunplay is needed. First person to fire the new ammunition was Rose Hobart in a scene for 'The Soul of a Monster,' in which she is supposed to empty six chambers of a revolver into George Macready. The smaller explosive charge in the shells proved easier on the actors and crew, who used to get mild shock occasionally from the heavier calibre weapons. But it is the sound men -- the guys with the amplifiers and earphones -- who have offered up the biggest prayer of thanks." See more
Several minutes into the film, after the main character has had a miraculous recovery, he has an encounter with a German shepherd that has a mostly black muzzle. The dog growls at him, so he throws a pair of hedge clippers at the dog and chases it away. In the next shot, the dog runs to a woman in his yard and the dog has a much lighter colored muzzle with very little black on it. See more
