** The whole musical falls prey to this. When it was written in the 1970's, there was only one book about Eva Peron published in English, written by a political opponent of the Perons. (Imagine writing a musical about UsefulNotes/BarackObama based solely upon his Wiki/{{Conservapedia}} page.) More recent biographers have portrayed Eva much more evenhandedly; she may not have been a saint, but she wasn't a villain, either.

** ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: Eva's first line as a young girl is one of these to Magaldi. It quickly becomes clear she's buttering him up to get what she wants.
* Later, her first conversation with Peron starts with her doing the same... and simultaneously Peron is saying almost the same words to her for the same reason, showing that this relationship is going to be very different from Eva's previous relationships.

* FollowTheLeader: ''Evita'' was followed by a slew of European sung-through musical biopics about glamourous political women (Elisabeth of Austria, Marie Antoinette, Catherine the Great, and their ilk) narrated by a sarcastic male character.



* HideYourPregnancy: About midway through the film production, Madonna discovered that she was pregnant with her first child. The film directors went to great lengths to cover up the possibility of her "Eva Peron" getting pregnant, even if it meant removing some scenes of her being carried out of the church for fear she might slip.

--> '''Eva''': I'm amazed, for I'm only an actress, nothing to shout about, only a girl on the air.
--> '''Peron''': I'm amazed for I'm only a soldier, one
of the church for fear she might slip.thousands defending the country he loves.
