** When Alfred is trying to get the recording machine to work in "real life," as he fiddles with the controls, the machine's arm twice lifts the disc off and drops it to the side of the machine. The third time, when Alfred reaches out his hand to catch the disc, the machine instead ''flips it over and puts it back on the spindle.''

** Certain things work in the fantasy sequences that wouldn't fly at all in reality. For example, speeding up a phonograph recording of Alfred's own voice is sufficient to make it sound exactly like that of his wife. Though he's never able to make the machine speed up his voice in real life afterward, he wouldn't have sounded like his wife even if he had; he'd have sounded like one of [[WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks the Chipmunks]].

* DreamSue: In Alfred's daydreams, everything goes perfectly for him. [[spoiler:He successfully kills his wife and frames Tony; he martyrs himself in the name of love in the best Humphrey-Bogart-in-''{{Casablanca}}'' fashion; and he manfully dies in a game of Russian Roulette after dramatically confronting the cheaters with their crime.]] However, reality proves…somewhat different.

* FantasySequence: Alfred gets three of them, set to three different pieces of music. However, it doesn't go quite so smoothly when he tries to carry these fantasies out in reality.

Distressed over this apparent betrayal, Alfred has differing fantasies over what to do as he conducts a concert, each fueled by the three extremely different musical pieces, which he conducts during the performance. The first fantasy is about murdering Daphne and framing Winborn, played to Rossini's ''Semiramide'' overture. The second about forgiving Daphne and letting her be with Windborn, to the overture to Creator/RichardWagner's ''Theatre/{{Tannhaeuser}}''. The third about confronting them over their affair, to PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky's ''RomeoAndJuliet''-fantasy overture.

Another possible reason the film did not do well was the suicide of Carole Landis, a film actress and lover of Rex Harrison, who took a fatal overdose of sleeping pills after Harrison refused to leave his wife for her. ''Unfaithfully Yours''--a comedy in which Harrison imagines murdering his wife--came out only four months after Landis's suicide and the ensuing scandal.

The movie was remade in 1984, but that was criticized as just mediocre, cutting out many elements of the original, such as the second and third fantasies and how the main character dealt with them.
