Trivia

Queenie Leonard (Mrs. Rogers), who died on January 17, 2002, was the last surviving cast member of the movie. See more »

Goofs

The cat, supposedly playing with Mrs. Brent's ball of yarn, bats the ball downstairs, leading others to follow the trail of yarn back to Mrs. Brent's room where they discover her body. However, the trail of yarn was obviously placed by stagehands starting at the stair rail then working towards the bedroom. The loops are draped one over the other going back to the body. It would be impossible to unwind the yarn from the ball and have each loop fall under the previous loop as presented. See more »

Quotes

Thomas Rogers: Never in my life have I been accused of any crime, sir - and if that's what you think of me, I shan't serve any dinner.

Masterpiece by Rene Clair

Rene Clair weaves the quintessential spider web with brilliant camera work including unusual but effective angles, snappy dialogue, and magnificent performances by ten impeccably cast artists. The viewer is drawn into the anxiety, claustrophobia, terror, and resignation felt one-by-one by each of the twelve weekend "guests" of Mr. Owen. Any mystery, suspense or thriller fan will be incomplete without seeing this work of absolute genius. My score: 10+/10.
