In the opening scene, Theodore Pierce is shown on a ledge with his back up against the building. The ledge is reasonably wide, and his feet are clearly at least a couple of feet from the edge. When the camera goes in for a closeup, however, his feet are right at the edge, implying a much narrower ledge.
In addition to the above, in the long shot, he is standing in front of the window . . . the seagull lands . . . and cut to the closeup, he is now on the ledge between two windows. There was not enough "real time" for him to move sideways on the ledge. See more »
"The Woman in Red" is Gene Wilder's somewhat sloppy comedy that's a remake of the 1977 French movie "Pardon Mon Affaire". Wilder did triple duty on this film. He not only stars but also wrote and directed the picture. As a writer and director, he does a so-so job. This movie has alot of silly moments that are totally preposterous. And it contains a few laughable lines of dialogue. But "The Woman in Red" for the most part is a pretty funny film. Wilder is good as Teddy Pierce, a married man who one day see's a beautiful woman wearing a red dress. After catching a glimpse of this woman, he becomes obsessed with her, and can't get her out of his mind. Wilder gets some good support from an exceptional cast which includes Charles Grodin, Joseph Bolonga, Judith Ivey, Kelly LeBrock (as The Woman in Red), and of course Wilder's late wife, Gilda Radner. "The Woman in Red" ain't a great comedy, but a good one. Only if Wilder had done a better directing job this would have been a great farce.
