Erich von Stroheim
- Lavond (as Madame Mandelip): Once you're in my shop, I'll wager you'll do anything I ask.
Lorraine Lavond: [referring to the disguised Lavond] Toto, I have the strongest feeling I've seen him somewhere before. Toto: You have.
Lavond (as Madame Mandelip): [with emotion] Then he said [clearing his throat] Lavond (as Madame Mandelip): that was the most important thing of all. He told me to tell you to forget him, to find happiness and keep it, to marry and give your children all the love you might have given him if he hadn't been taken from you.
Malita: We'll make the whole WORLD small!
Charles Matin: There'a a certain amusing irony in offering a man's own money for his capture. Fifty thousand francs? Why not?
- Francis McDonald (Detective) and Inez Palange (Concierge) are in studio records/casting call lists as cast members for their roles, but they did not appear or were not identifiable in the movie.
