Continuity
In the sequence when Mathilde exits the car and silently waves goodbye to Gerbier, in response he rolls his window up completely, yet in the very next shot his window remains open as the car drives away.

Revealing Mistakes
When Gerbier is being taken to the concentration camp at the beginning of the film, and the guard driving the police van makes an unexpected stop at the house, it is clear that the rain is only falling in front of the camera and directly on the van. Only a few feet away, there are no raindrops hitting the mud or the puddles of water.
Trivia:
During the shooting of this film, Lino Ventura and the director Jean-Pierre Melville did not speak to each other. They only communicated through assistants.

In the dubbed Italian version for the film, Lino Ventura is dubbed by Emilio Cigoli; Simone Signoret by Adriana de Roberto and Paul Meurisse by Roberto Villa.
