• Arrived at Dunkirk, a lieutenant of the Royal Navy said Robbie Turner as the evacuation is stopped for the time being, and that the RMS Lancastria was sunk, it is an anachronism because the Dunkirk evacuation took place between 26 may and 3 June 1940, when the RMS Lancastria was bombed and sunk on 17 June 1940 off St Nazaire.

• This is the first film by Michael Powell achieved without the collaboration of his accomplice of the great success Emeric Pressburger.

• Michael Powell has encrusted a lot of elements of his own life in the course of the film sequences projected by the main character : he interprets himself the father of Mark Lewis, and his son Columba lends its features to the following when it sees a child. In addition, all of his scenes were shot in the childhood home of the film director, in London.

• The Voyeur is released in theaters the same year as a famous other film narrating the acts dark a killer, lonely and reserved, namely Psychosis.
