* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: One of the soldiers likens the effect the frozen alien has on the scientists with the effect an Army nurse had on an island full of soldiers during the war. When asked what happened to her, he answers with a grin "She liked it there."

* ScienceMarchesOn: A rather mundane example. One of the crew comes in from the cold with a frostbitten hand. Hendry tells him to get it in ice water and rub it. A common treatment at the time, but basically the worst thing you can do in that situation.

* JamesBondage: Nikki (the love interest) ties up our hero on their second date. Seems he grew octopus hands on their first.

Added DiffLines:

* GenreBlind: Dr. Carrington in spades. He refuses to understand that simply because a creature is older than man that doesn't mean it's wiser or more intellectually/morally evolved. Even after the Thing murders his assistants, Carrington still maintains that it was all an accident and even tries to warn the creature about the electric trap. [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves The Thing responds by beating the crap out of him.]]

* BillingDisplacement: Margaret Sheridan (Nikki) somehow got top billing, despite having a less important role - and less film experience - than Kenneth Tobey (Hendry).
** Sheridan was a protégée of Howard Hawks, who thought she had the potential to become a major star. (He had offered her the female lead in ''Film/RedRiver'' three years earlier, but she turned it down after becoming pregnant.)
