** Subverted with the opening closet. The ScareChord that plays whenever it opens makes you think that it's going to have an important part to play in the plot. [[spoiler: When it finally does open unexpectedly in front of the police, Harry's body isn't in it. He's in the tub instead.]] In the end it almost looks as an [[GenreSavvy in-universe playing with the trope]].

This film was initially a box-office failure but has since become well regarded. It's also notable for its music score by Music/BernardHerrmann.

Over the years, Creator/AlfredHitchcock gave the world such thrillers as ''{{Rebecca}}'', ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' and ''Film/TheBirds''. He also gave us a few comedies, such as this one, a 1955 adaptation of Jack Trevor Story's novel. Originally the film was a box office failure but it has since become well regarded.

Added DiffLines:

* LotsaPeopleTryToDunIt: Multiple characters think they might have killed Harry, which results in his body behind moved multiple times as they try to hide their possible. In this case, none of them actually set out to murder him, but each one believes they may be guilty of at least manslaughter. [[spoiler:It turns out none of them actually killed Harry.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticTitle: The opening credits are shown while the camera scrolls along a stylized, childlike drawing (by ''Magazine/TheNewYorker'' cartoonist Saul Steinberg) of a house, trees, birds... and Harry's corpse.
