* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The reason this movie still exists. According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosferatu The Other Wiki]], the film's creating studio was sued by the estate of Creator/BramStoker, and the courts ordered all copies of the film to be ''burned''. Somehow, one copy slipped through the cracks, and this copy was then duplicated and spread throughout the world. The 'crack' was the United States, which didn't recognize most foreign copyright claims until decades later, by which time the original book was public domain and the claim against the film moot.

* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: One scene has Orlok loading up a horse-drawn cart with coffins. He then gets inside one at the top of the coffin stack. Watch as the lid of the coffin moves up to Orlok's coffin (via stop-motion photography) -- the horses change position a couple of times.
