When Emma is rolling over the unconscious Alex, her scarf is first around her neck. We don't see it fall or her take it off, yet in the next shot, when she pulls him into the apartment, it is several feet away from the door, on the floor next to a painting. It is in another spot when Alex returns it to Emma after their argument in the stairwell. See more
You're looking for sex, Mr. Shipley. You're barking up the wrong body.

Remake of Holiday for Henrietta
