Insanity is another interesting concept we see in other noirs. In Murder, My Sweet we see Philip Marlowe, yet another detective, be locked up in an asylum because the events of that Noir that he seem insane. In Sunset Boulevard we see the Insanity of Norma Desmond when her reality of stardom was broken. We can see both of these in Vertigo when Scotties is also put in a mental health facility and later when he put together the truth about Judy impersonating Madeleine Elster causing Scottie to force her to the top of a church tower where she falls off. Insanity itself is not a Noir trope but as stated it has been used in Noirs and an innocent person being put into an asylum is a pretty dark plot device.
