** Frank turns into a huge ''Film/JamesBond'' fan at the height of his pulling off his Pan Am pilot con game. (At one point early in his career, Spielberg wanted to direct a Bond movie). He even watches part of the hotel scene of ''Goldfinger'' at one point.

* GenreThrowback: The film deliberately apes the late 50s and early 60s sophisticated thriller and crime movie, especially ''Topkapi'', the original ''Ocean's Eleven'', ''Film/{{Charade}}'' and many Creator/AlfredHitchcock movies. The title screens are done in the style of Saul Bass and the ''Pink Panther'' movies, and the score by John Williams is a {{Homage}} to Henry Mancini.

* AnachronicOrder: The film skips around quite a bit. The movie starts with a clip of a reformed Frank on "To Tell the Truth", then skips back several years to a sequence with Agent Hanratty coming to interview Frank in a brutal French prison. It then skips back several more years to the beginning to start the main narrative about Frank and his life of crime. As the main plot unspools the film periodically skips forward to show Carl bringing Frank back to the United States.
