  1. I've seen this film many times, but the opening scene STILL makes me want to see the film again, right now! I think the POV is effective in that you instantly want to make up your mind about someone by their face, appearance, expressions, mannerisms. But here, you can't, and so it makes the mystery even more compelling. Is this really a criminal, or a falsely accused man? Did he really kill his wife??
  2. Like some other posters, I wouldn't have necessarily said this scene comes from a noir film, except the jarring sounds, and the tunnel, which both automatically made me feel wary. Looking forward to seeing the rest of this film.
  3. Although it's supposed to be around noon when the children are playing, their shadows are long and the lighting is very dim. While the mothers seem concerned/loving, the fact that a child should be walking home alone from school while there's a murderer about seems mystifying, a tragedy waiting to happen. Peter Lorre's shadow appearing over the German word "murderer" almost seems campy now but in 1931 was probably chilling.
