Trivia

  • Peter Lorre's whistling was dubbed by director Fritz Lang.

  • The tune that Peter Lorre's character whistles is "In the Halls of the Mountain King," from the "Peer Gynt" suite, by Edvard Grieg.
  • Fritz Lang and Peter Lorre were Jewish and fled Germany in fear of Nazi persecution shortly after the movie's release.
  • Based on an article Fritz Lang read about the serial killer Peter Kuerten from Duesseldorf. Details have been changed (Kuerten was not a child murderer, for example) but some things resemble reality.
