* YouSuck: The film ends with the Judge addressing the audience as the jury, asking them to think whether they themselves are good enough drivers to be qualified to sentence Joe. Of course, the answer is very likely "yes," making this fall rather flat.

* SocietyMarchesOn: Joe pleads he still has a full book of A coupons (presumably for gas). Ah, WorldWarII rationing...

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllMyFault: The Guardian Angel states that Joe's death is because he looked away for one second (out of exhaustion). The Judge tells him that no one could have stuck with Joe as much as he did.

Not to be confused with the [[Film/XMarksTheSpot 1931/1942 films]] about rubber racketeering, nor with the {{BBC}} Radio 4 [[Series/XMarksTheSpot game show]] from the late 90s.
