Notes

Hitchcock cameo: Hitch solved the difficult problem of how to make a cameo appearance in the middle of the ocean by appearing in a "before-and-after" diet advertisement in the newspaper Rittenhouse is reading. Tallulah Bankhead developed pneumonia after hours of filming in wet clothes. During filming Hitchcock went on a serious diet, reducing his weight from 300 to 200 pounds.
