Funny, when I saw the clip, my first thought was that it was Tom Conway (George Sanders' brother). Looking like Flynn probably didn't hurt Conway's career..;)

Actually the falling wall gag was first used in a Keaton/Arbuckle 2-reeler, Backstage (1919). Then in One Week (1920), followed by Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928).

Oh yes, that's true. I couldn't find a clip of the one from One Week. He did the stunt in One Week, "Steamboat" and one other, which I can't remember. Unbelievable stunt.

Yeah, I too don't understand why that would be a cliche. Many women are attracted to men much older than they. It's pretty commonplace.

Great film, and certainly the best ever neo-noir! I also liked The Two Jakes, and am glad it included a narrator! I wish they'd have made the 3rd film in the trilogy.
