* VillainProtagonist: Griffin himself. The entire point of the movie is just watching him commit crime after crime, all while insisting he's totally going to go legit.

** Even though it's deliberate misspelling, director Francis even manages to screw up the joke by allowing the viewer less than two seconds to read the sign.

* TheSociopath: Griffin. It was probably unintended -- but if it ''was'' intended, then he's one of the most disturbingly realistic portrayals of a sociopath ever put to film.

* RedScare: Like ''Film/TheBeastOfYuccaFlats'', this movie takes it's share in the then popular wave of commie scare movies of the 50s and 60s. However, other than parting Chastain from his uranium mine in Arizona, Cuba (the Communists) is rather portrayed as BananaRepublic. The focus of the story is on Griffin's unscrupulous acts, though.

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Obviously Cherokee Jack isn't supposed to be an actual Cherokee, but there's still no explanation as to why an airplane pilot in the Arizona desert has a Brooklyn accent.
* OffscreenTeleportation: Chastain. Last we saw him he was locked up in a Cuban P.O.W. camp waiting to be executed by firing squad, then he shows up again in the United States, alive and well, at the end of the movie.

* InformedAbility: It's hard to believe Griffin could be a magnate of ''anything'', much less "The Cotton King of the South".

** Griffin mashes a fellow enlistee's face on his knee, but thanks to the angle and the blocking, it looks like he's shoving the man's face into his ''crotch'' to knock him out. To be fair, the man is probably grateful he didn't choose the latter.

* FatBastard: Griffin. As the various entries on this page show, he's not exactly a nice man, and he's grossly overweight.

* TheCameo: Creator/JohnCarradine, who only appears in one scene at the very beginning of the movie, and also he sings the theme song ("Night Train to Mundo Fine"). Despite this he's listed as a "guest star."

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Apparently the entire process of enlisting, completing training, and being deployed on a top secret mission only takes 24 hours. Moreover, the US Army is willing to enlist hobos, some of whom have criminal records.
