Trivia Sir Alfred Hitchcock's daughter Patricia found this movie so disturbing, that she would not allow her children to see it for many years. See more »
Goofs After the police see the body in the back of the potato truck, they follow it and hit their siren. The truck driver then hits his brakes and the body falls out of the potato truck. This should not happen. The law of inertia means that any unsecured item in the truck will continue to move forward if the truck comes to an abrupt halt (which is the entire reason why we need seat belts in cars - to keep us from flying through the windshield during an accident). The body in the truck *should* have kept moving forward in the bed until it hit the partition separating the bed from the passenger cabin (or more sacks of potatoes). See more »
