* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Fry seems to have a change of heart when Barry tries to save him in the final scene, promising he'll confess everything and clear Barry's name in gratitude. One never gets to see him fulfill that promise, as he [[DisneyVillainDeath plummets to his death]] despite Barry's best efforts.



* KarmaHoudini: Tobin. Maybe. Fry takes a dive off the Statue of Liberty, most of the other conspirators were arrested, and the cops would presumably have scooped up Mrs. Sutton, but Tobin says the night before the bombing that he is leaving the country immediately. It's also downplayed by HistoryMarchesOn, as we now know he's thrown his lot in with one of the 20th century's great losing sides, so no matter what he'll be screwed when the Allies win the war in three years.

* StockFootage: A latter-day viewer might see the clip of the capsized ship and think that Fry succeeded in his mission. The shot actually shows the SS ''Normandie'', a RealLife ocean liner which really did catch fire and capsize in 1942. So Barry succeeded in stopping Fry from sinking the SS ''Alaska'', but Fry's smirk implies that his group was behind the earlier loss of the ''Normandie''.

* WholePlotReference: Let's just say that this film is more than a little bit similar to a previous Hitchcock film, ''Literature/TheThirtyNineSteps''.
