Stella and Lisa talk about Mr. Thurwould murdering his wife, so they're talking about the man, but it's relevant to the plot.

They are still technically talking about a man.

Yes but the very next lines are:

Stella, your choice of words --

Nobody's invented polite words yet for killing.

This passes 3/3.

Jim disagreed with the rating and said:
Stella and Lisa have several scenes in which they talk about things besides Thorwald himself. They talk about Mrs. Thorwald's missing wedding ring, and they talk about the death of the little dog. Nothing dubious about it, the movie clearly passes. Watch it again. I just did today!
