    • Injoke: The private investigator Hugh Creighton hires to spy on his girlfriend and her lover is called Sam Marlow. This is a direct reference to the two classic fictional private eye figures: Sam Spade and Phillip Marlow. Both characters have appeared many times in several movies, TV shows and books.

    Trivia (1)

    • The woman who was an accomplice after the fact, said she didn't know if the murderer had done it when she heard that the rock star was dead. How could she have been driving in his car with a mask of him on at the moment of the crime and not know he was murdering her, or at least committing an improper act.
