* HistoricalInJoke: A subtle one with Elsie. [[spoiler:The film ends with Morris Weissman apparently inviting her to go back to Hollywood with him to appear in ''Charlie Chan in London''. In the real ''Charlie Chan in London'', there's a maid played by British actress '''Elsa''' Buchanan, whose birth name really was Elsie.]]

* BeneathSuspicion: ''All'' the [[AnAesop working class]] characters are considered this by the detective since the murder victim was upper-class and the detective is only interested in anyone who had "a real connection" with the victim. Had he bothered to question any of the servants, he might have learned that [[spoiler:the victim had slept with some of them.]]

* ShoutOut: Not only is ''CharlieChan in London'' referenced as the real film that the fictional Morris Weissman is producing, the plot of ''Gosford Park'' has rough similarities to it (murder at a country estate, many suspects, class division between aristocrats and servants).

** Before the murder, George is asked about Sir William's whereabouts and he says "He's still in the library. He won't be out again tonight." Or any other night, as it turns out.
