* BewareTheNiceOnes: While, for most of the film, Troshkin is only pretending to be a cold-blooded murderer, he does it effectively enough to convince two of the Docent's own partners. Additionally, when he finally faces off against his CriminalDoppelganger, he manages to temporarily disarm the criminal before the latter pulls a gun. It's stated early in the film that Troshkin is a WorldWarTwo vet.

* MirrorMatch: At the end, Troshkin and Beliy square off, and the timid kindergarten director actually manages to temporarily disarm the knife-wielding criminal (it's stated early in the film that he's a WorldWarTwo vet). The fight ends when Beliy pulls a gun.

* WetCementGag: The fake breakout involves the characters getting into an empty tanker. They get the wrong car by mistake, so not only are they away from the planned hiding spot, they also need new clothes thanks to this trope.

* ActingForTwo: YevgenyLeonov plays both Beliy, a ruthless murderer and Troshkin, a soft-spoken kindergarten teacher.



* PlayingAgainstType: By the time movie was made, Vitsin (Sad Sack) had a successful career playing one of the Soviet cinema's ComicTrio (as the Coward), and had been typecast to play weak comedic characters with high-pitched voices. In this movie he plays a truly tragic character who speaks with a hoarse voice and [[spoiler:tries to commit suicide]].

* GreatEscape: Beliy's buddies don't know the exact addresses of whom Beliy met in Moscow to sell the golden helmet, but at least they can show the places on-site, so the police orchestrates a fake prison break just for them. Of course, it does not go as planned (instead of getting to the already-prepared spot with money and civilian clothes, they end up 30 kilometers away with no money, no clothes and [[RuleOfFunny all covered in concrete]]), but all in all it still goes surprisingly successful.
