* SpiritualAdaptation: James Bond was still a popular book series when this film came out, but it essentially codified many of the elements that typify Bond. Morally ambiguous femme fatale spies, AffablyEvil supervillains, sexually ambiguous dragons, use of MonumentBattle and wild action sequences. Likewise, Creator/SeanConnery's turn as Bond, as a more suave individual than his literary counterpart was based on Creator/CaryGrant's performance in this film. Indeed, Hitchcock who initially considered adapting James Bond was upset that Albert Broccoli (who he knew personally) ripped of his film for many of the early Bond films.

* FreudWasRight: In the very last shot, the train that Roger and Eve are on goes into a tunnel. They really couldn't have made it more obvious.
* FridgeLogic: If you're going to lure somebody to the middle of nowhere to kill him, why not do a drive-by instead of having a minion attack him from a cropduster? Hitchcock himself acknowledged the scene makes no sense, but justified it since nobody notices while watching the film.
