The camera cranes up and reveals a man with a pipe standing next to a woman in an elegant dark suit. The effect is thrilling: we see what Meinike does not. And yet our knowledge remains partial: a large sign occludes Wilson’s face. The technique probably involves some sleight of hand, allowing a double to play Robinson’s part, but the trick is meaningful nonetheless, enhancing the atmosphere of lies and uncertainty.
