In one scene in the cellar, during a conversation between Marion and Lucas, we can see the sound recordist hiding himself in a corner of the cellar.

Factual Mistake
When Granger talks about his bike being stolen, he mentions the license plate number: 813 HK 45 (in the original version to the least). This number belongs to a system that was introduced in France in 1950 only, which did not even concern bicycles.
Sacha Guitry (1885 - 1957) was a noted French film actor, director, screenwriter and playwright.

When Lucas talks to Marion about a play he saw in London, he is alluding to Patrick Hamilton's "Gaslight", which was twice made into a movie, by Thorold Dickinson in 1940, and by George Cukor in 1944.
