Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: The plot comes apart because Judy kept the necklace Ellster gave her in order to pose as Madeleine. If she'd disposed of it, Scottie might never have realised the plot.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Midge disappears around the two-thirds point (she's present in the alternate deleted ending though). One of the rare cases with important characters when it's probably justified: Midge's disappearance symbolizes that there's no more room for her in Scottie's obsessed mind, nor for the common sense and cold reason she personifies - in the film itself (it's hardly a coincidence that the last we see of Midge is her literally exiting).

* LastKiss: Ultimately subverted. After Madeleine ominously tells Scottie "If you lose me, then you'll know I loved you and wanted to go on loving you," she gives him a final kiss before heading off to the clock tower. [[spoiler: Ditto for Judy, albeit it manages to be even more tragic this time.]]

[[spoiler: Ditto for Judy, albeit it manages to be even more tragic this time. So one can probably say this trope was DoubleSubverted in the end...]]

* DreamingTheTruth: There's a moment in the dream where Scottie flashes back to the moment after the inquest when Elster is talking to him except in the dream Elster is embracing Carlotta, hinting that Elster is a villain and Carlotta (or rather her story) is his accomplice. Scottie's conscious mind doesn't accept this however until much later when he spots Carlotta's necklace in the mirror in third act.

The film was released to mixed reviews and modest box office results. Critics complained of the film being overly long, slow and too "bogged in detail". However by the late 1960s, scholar Robin Wood re-evaluated the film to be "one of the four or five most profound and beautiful films the cinema has yet given us". Removed from circulation in 1973, it remained somewhat obscure.

* AsYouKnow: Scottie's line to Midge near the beginning, "hey we were engaged once". As one reviewer put it, "who would say that if there wasn't an audience listening?"

Scottie suffers a mental breakdown for some time after his love's death, constantly seeing her in women he meets. It turns out that there is one woman who really does look a lot like Madeleine - a sharp-tongued brunette named Judy Barton (Novak again). Still haunted by the memory of his dead love, Scottie pursues a relationship with Judy. But the ghosts of the past never die, and their consequences prove to be what no one expected...

Scottie suffers a mental breakdown for some time after his love's death, to the point of being institutionalized with a near-catatonic depression and "nursed" by his friend and former fiancée Midge (Barbara Bel Geddes).
