  • The shop that the Kusenovs visit just before their defection is Den Permanente ("The Permanent"), which housed an exhibition of Danish Arts and Crafts. It was founded in 1931 as a cooperative by Danish artists and craftsmen, but closed in the 1980s. A poster advertising Den Permanente appears in Hitchcock's previous film, Torn Curtain.[1]
  • In the opening sequence when the Kusenovs defect to the West, their daughter Tamara (Tina Hedström) stumbles into the path of a cyclist and is knocked down. The scene is clearly played by a stuntwoman wearing protective padding around her knees.
