Trivia from Manhattan Murder Mystery

  • Lead role written for Mia Farrow, but Diane Keaton got the role following Farrow's famous breakup with the film's director Woody Allen.
  • Carol Lipton, played by Diane Keaton, claims to hate wearing a tie with a skirt. She made that look famous playing Annie Hall in Annie Hall (1977).
  • Director Trademark: [Woody Allen] [writer] Marcia Fox is a writer.
  • Woody Allen was inspired in part by the classic The Thin Man (1934) movie series, modeling his main characters after Nick and Nora Charles.
  • Another recognizable film influence here is Orson Wells's The Lady From Shanghai
  • Woody Allen planned to make his earlier film Annie Hall (1977) a murder mystery, but cut that subplot out and used the initial murder mystery for this movie.
  • Manhattan Murder Mystery was actually the generic working title during production - Allen films usually have generic titles during production like "Woody Allen Fall Project" - but since no new title could be thought of, Woody Allen decided to leave that as the title.
