Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: At the beginning of the movie, Moreau!Maria's partner shoots herself after being jilted by her lover, an act witnessed by Bardot!Maria at a distance (she sees the distraught woman run into her trailer, then hears the fatal shot a few seconds later). This ends up to Bardot!Maria, who has had no previous theatrical experience, being drafted as Moreau!Maria's new partner.

Added DiffLines:

* OfCorsetsSexy: During their first performance after they team up, the two Marias aren't having much luck pleasing the audience. Then they have a series of accidents which results in their stripping/being stripped down to their tight-laced corsets and black stockings, and they become an instant hit throughout Central America, with the striptease becoming the focus of their act.

* KnifeThrowingAct: The boy tied to the board is harmed during this routine because Bardot!Maria distracts the man controlling the spotlight, leaving the knife-thrower in the dark and hitting the boy in the arm. This is PlayedForLaughs.
