I was going through the prestige trying to work out who was alfred borden and who was freddy borden in each scene. I think it's possible to work it out given the context, but I noticed that Christian Bale's left eyebrow sometimes has a shaved nick in it and sometimes doesn't. It seems generally that the Freddy scenes have the nick and the Alfred ones don't, but it's not very consistent. I can't tell whether it's deliberate but in certain scenes practicality meant they couldn't be strict with it, or just a big coincidence based on his eyebrow growing back. Anyone else noticed this when watching?

Alfred has a larger man bulge than Freddie.
