a Greek Chorus comments on the action
* BilingualBonus: The Japanese newspaper article on Frank Flannagan does not mention him, but rather reads "The great newspaper king Kane dies". This is the same article used in the montage in ''Film/CitizenKane'', with the name and picture of Frank Flannagan added in.

* ChekhovsGunman: The cuckolded husband who features in the opening scenes and winds up causing Frank and Ariane to meet then disappears from the movie, until towards the end, when he pops pu again and recommends Ariane's father Claude as a detective for Frank. * DiegeticSwitch: The waltz "Fascination" is used as a motif for Frank and Ariane, both playing over the soundtrack and sung/played InUniverse. In one scene the music seems to be playing over the soundtrack while Frank's in the sauna, only for the camera to turn and reveal that Frank's musicians have actually followed him into the shower, and are playing, while soaking wet.

* GreekChorus: The Gypsies follow Flannagan everywhere to provide music. Even into the sauna.

* MayDecemberRomance: Ariane is stated to be 18, and though Frank's age isn't given, no attempt is given to make his character seem young. (Cooper was 55 at the time of filming).
