* DawsonCasting: Scottie and Midge are meant to be the same age, but James Stewart was fifteen years older than Barbara Bel Geddes. He was also twenty-four years older than Kim Novak.

to:

* DoingItForTheArt: It took a week to film the brief scene of Madeline staring at the painting of Carlotta, just because Hitchcock wanted to get the lighting right.
* EnforcedMethodActing: In order to differentiate her two characters, Kim Novak wore tight and stiff costumes for Madeline - the grey suit was especially uncomfortable for her to wear. But for Judy's costumes, she went braless to make herself feel more comfortable.
* {{Jossed}}: For years it was rumoured that Kim Novak dubbed the final line of the film, by the nun. It was even written into the script notes. Kim Novak herself denied this.

* DeletedScene: During the film's production, a tacked-on ending scene set in Midge's apartment was shot, offering a clearer exposition of Elster's and Scottie's fates. It was shot for overseas prints of the film in countries whose censor boards were tougher than [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode the Hays Office]] (which, by 1958, was a lot more lenient and was entering its twilight), and was eventually included as an extra on various home video releases.
* TheOtherMarty: Hitchcock originally cast Vera Miles as Madeline. She performed a costume test and modeled for an early version of Carlotta's portrait, but had to leave the project after becoming pregnant.
* {{Trope Namer|s}}: Hitchcock helped give rise to the term FridgeLogic when admitting that he had no explanation for the scene where Madeline leaves her hotel room without Scottie or the desklady seeing:
-->"[This scene] hits you after you've gone home and start pulling cold chicken out of the [[TechnologyMarchesOn icebox]]."
