* TheBaroness: Madame Sebastian.

to:

* TheBaroness: Madame Sebastian is far more ruthless than her Nazi agent son.
* BigBad: Alexander
Sebastian.



* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: Despite common perceptions of the 1940's, the plot is based on Alicia's history and experience with many men, something which is regarded as neither extraordinary or even noteworthy, and she and Alexander Sebastian sleep together before marriage (before even a proposal) after only a few weeks together.



* FemmeFataleSpy: Alicia is asked by the US government to seduce (and eventually marry) a Nazi agent in order to have someone with inside access to his house who can look out for the illegal activities the US government suspects are going on in there. When told the nature of her assignment, Alicia even mentions Mata Hari, saying, "Mata Hari, she makes love for the papers."



* GoSeduceMyArchnemesis: Devlin orders Alicia to sleep with. Alicia complies, and he berates her for it. Interestingly, when Devlin's superiors demonstrate the same hypocrisy toward Alicia that he has, Devlin defends her.



* MommasBoy: Alex Sebastian. His mother still has her hooks in good and deep. [[spoiler: Alex manages to stand up to her by marrying Alicia. Unfortunately, Alicia turns out to be an American spy, and so Alex's mother is able to step in and exert control again]]



* PlayingGertrude: Leopoldine Konstantin was a mere three years older than her on-screen son, Claude Rains.


Added DiffLines:

* WetBlanketWife: Devlin is a RareMaleExample. He recruits Alicia to seduce and marry a Nazi leader so she can spy on him, but once he falls in love with her he starts taking digs at her for sleeping with the Nazi before she married him and trying to make her choose between him and the mission.

* BilingualBonus: The key to the wine cellar is labeled UNICA, which in Italian means "unique" -- an appropriate name, since it's a different shape from all the other keys on Sebastian's key chain.
