Hi, Filmfind people.
Unfortunately this is all so fuzzy to me that it very well could be a dream. I recall a mystery, detective, or heist movie where somebody hides in a janitor’s closet under stairs to gain night-time access. I think it’s an older, maybe classic, even black and white movie. Random recollections I have include velvet guide ropes, an office off to the right side of a big hall, the janitor’s closet door on the left side when seen from behind the stairs, something about the janitor’s equipment and the tight quarters in the closet, possibly even with a love story.
Does any of that sound like any movie you recall?
