[[spoiler: When they stop, Francie reveals she knew the real reason and asks if they lost them.]]

* MsFanservice: Francie--[[PlayingWithATrope in her own,]] Creator/GraceKelly-[[BuffySpeak ish]] way. Hitchcock himself noted that a seeming ProperLady [[ugarAndIcePersonality who suddenly explodes with passion when she and her target are alone]] can be ''much'' sexier than a blatant MsFanservice whose sexuality is all-on-the-surface. He would often point to Grace's moments in this film as examples.
