Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: Dr. Murchison.


Added DiffLines:

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The film is in black and white, but near the end, when [[spoiler: the head of the mental hospital is identified as the killer, he turns the incriminating gun on himself and fires,]] the blast being a moment of bright red.


Added DiffLines:

* HitFlash: [[spoiler: Dr. Murchison's suicide is filmed from his point-of-view, the gun is pointed at the camera, and a bright red flash is seen in the otherwise black & white film. Some copies don't bother preserving this...]]
* InertialImpalement: Edwardes' psychological trauma is revealed to have been caused by a childhood accident: sliding down a wide bannister, he accidentally knocked his brother onto the spikes of a metal fence, impaling him.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Trigger}}: Edwardes becomes uncomfortable every time he sees a pattern of wavy dark lines against a white background, because it reminds him [[spoiler: of the event which caused his amnesia - he had witnessed a murder at a ski resort, the dark lines were ski tracks in the snow]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Theremin}}: The score was supposed to be the first one with the theremin, which producer David O. Selznick was really excited about. When he found out that composer Music/MiklosRozsa was also using the instrument in his score for ''Film/TheLostWeekend'', Selznick was furious. He knew that ''The Lost Weekend'' would be released before ''Spellbound'' (Weekend was released in November, Spellbound in December), thus spoiling Selznick's "first-score-with-theremin" thunder.

* ForcedPerspective: Oversized props were used in the two POV shots (see below). The fake hand holding the gun in the second shot is very unconvincing.



* POVCam: A striking use of one when Peck is drinking a glass of milk, with the glass looking huge in the frame and the milk whiting out the view.
