You know, Bill, the movie has a lot of details like that slip by me. For instance, in this recent showing of the movie, I noticed that Sam Spade at the end of the night while waiting on the dingus goes around and cuts off the apartment lights. I don't understand why but it's a movie that's watchable innumerable times.
