Trivia This film is François Truffaut's homage to Alfred Hitchcock, made shortly after Truffaut had published a book of extensive interviews with Hitchcock. As part of his homage, Truffaut chose a novel written by Cornell Woolrich, on who's story Hitchcock's Rear Window (1954) was based, and even chose long-time Hitchcock collaborator Bernard Herrmann to compose the score.

Goofs When Carol shows his ticket at the theater, he is told that the performance had started three minutes ago, and is immediately shown to his box. When he gets inside the theater, the performers are in the middle of the second movement of the piece (Beethoven's Cello Sonata #3), implying that they had been playing for at least 10 minutes.
