* 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]]."
