Facts about

Based on real-life French murderer Desire Landru, who was guillotined in 1922.
Chaplin regarded the film as "the cleverest and most brilliant film of my career".
The film was originally meant to be directed by Orson Welles and starring Charles Chaplin, but Chaplin backed out at the last moment, saying that he had never had anyone direct him before and didn't want to start. Instead, he bought the screenplay off Welles and re-wrote parts of it, crediting Welles with only the "idea". Welles said that, despite most of the script being his, he didn't mind as it was one of his lesser works.
