* TheyJustDidntCare:
** Creator/{{Universal}} hasn't done as good a job taking care of this movie as they have other Hitchcock movies from the 1950's. This fact seems especially disappointing after learning that it is one of five movies that Hitch filmed in the sharp and colorful [=VistaVision=] format, but the only one of the five to come to Blu-Ray Disc with rapid color fluctuations. Heck, after [[Creator/TheCriterionCollection Criterion]] restored the original version in 2012, the remake now looks even uglier than ''that'', despite coming out over 20 years later.
** When Universal acquired the distribution rights in 1983, they replaced Creator/{{Paramount}}'s opening and closing logos with their own. Some time later, they restored Paramount's original introduction, but still kept the Universal logo at the end-complete with an out-of-date byline for [[Creator/MCAVideoDistributingCorporation MCA]].

Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: The scene in the 1956 film where Jo learns about her son's kidnapping is wrenching. As listed above, Doris Day does an excellent job of acting the character's fear for her son's safety, her anger that her husband sedated her, and her confusion brought along by the pills.
