* ValuesDissonance: Of the deliberate variety. Wadsworth saying that Mr. Boddy drove Mrs. Wadsworth to suicide by blackmailing her over being a socialist is perfectly plausible for movie set during the Red Scare. But, although it's still not a mainstream political position, it is strange to watch the movie in TheNewTens when there's a sitting member of the U.S. Senate who describes ''himself'' as a socialist. Likewise, Mr. Green's concern about being outed as a gay man comes off as if it's mere public embarrassment or scorn he'd deal with, but since the film is set in the fifties and Green has a government job it'd almost guarantee he'd be fired.
** RuleOfFunny: It was set in TheFifties.

* IncrediblyLamePun: Wadsworth's pun about Hoover
-->'''Professor Plum''': But is the FBI in the habit of cleaning up after multiple murders?
-->'''Wadsworth''': Of course. Why do think itís run by a man called Hoover?

** Wadsworth. In the [[spoiler: Scarlett and Peacock]] endings [[spoiler: where he's working for the FBI is he deliberately making it harder on Boddy's victims and not protecting the accomplice's out of some sense of justice]]? In the [[spoiler: ending where he's Mr. Boddy]] is he behaving the way he does throughout the movie [[spoiler: to torment his victims]]?

** Seeing the film again, one will notice Wadsworth's reaction to Mr. Green revealing his blackmail without letting Wadsworth out him. He's confused and checks the blackmail to see if Green's there, [[spoiler: the blackmail unfamiliar to him and possibly planted by the FBI.]]
