** Joe's millionaire persona is an overt CaryGrant imitation; Curtis was a great admirer of Grant's work, and the two would appear together in ''Film/OperationPetticoat'' later that same year.

*** A bit of a mistake - Cary Grant's accent, due to his mixed British/American upbringing, was a "natural" version of the affected [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mid-Atlantic_accent Mid-Atlantic accent]] that was popular in the US up until WWII. Though the height of it's popularity was in the 30's and 40's, it was not uncommon in 1929 and earlier, and no one at that time would have found it unusual.

[[TheWindyCity Chicago]], [[TheRoaringTwenties 1929]]: Joe (Creator/TonyCurtis) and Jerry (Creator/JackLemmon) are down-on-their-luck jazz musicians who become accidental witnesses to the Valentine's Day Massacre. Unfortunately, being known to be a witness to a massacre is [[LeaveNoWitnesses something the mob will kill people over]], and Joe and Jerry have been spotted, so they need to get out of Chicago fast.

* DistractedByTheSexy: When the band is rehearsing, Jerry gets so distracted watching Sugar shake her hips as she sings that it takes him a while to notice that he accidentally spun his bass around 180 degrees and has spent the last several bars enthusiastically playing on the bare wooden back.

* AbortedArc: At the beginning of the train trip, Sweet Sue tells Beinstock that she thinks there's "something funny about those new girls" and he tells her he'll keep an eye on them. Nothing further ever comes of this.
** [[ChekhovsGun Possibly a subtle set-up for when Joe steals Beinstock's glasses to use as part of his "millionaire" persona.]]

* CoolBoat: Osgood's yacht is pretty snazzy.
** His speedboat is no slouch either. Something like that from the late-1920s would have been powered by a liquid-cooled V-12 ''aircraft engine''.

** The last item didn't happen until 2008, making this even more HilariousInHindsight.
* HollywoodDarkness: The scenes when Sugar is running out to meet Joe after the concert are full of shadows and a bright sky...at one o'clock in the morning.
** In fairness, there ''was'' a full moon.
* HomoeroticSubtext: So very much, particularly for 1959. At one point Jerry-as-Daphne seems to be developing genuine romantic feelings for Osgood, much to Joe's consternation (and we later find out that [[spoiler: Osgood is completely unfazed by Jerry's real gender]]). Also, Sugar doesn't seem to initially mind getting a full-on kiss from [[spoiler: Josephine]]. On a side note, Joe and Jerry are HeterosexualLifePartners, Joe is very insistent that they do everything together and that what's Jerry's is his and while Jerry vocally objects, he goes along with it anyway.
** Though the last case may be more akin to them being like brothers, with Jerry being the little brother who gets bullied into doing things he doesn't want to.
