* MagnificentBastard: ''Eleanor Iselin''. People who know Creator/AngelaLansbury from ''MurderSheWrote'' would be surprised to watch this movie. Her place on AFI's "Villains" List is well earned.

** Creator/AngelaLansbury's performance in the original. Lady Macbeth is less evil. Then Creator/MerylStreep went and topped it!

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In the 1962 film, Janet Leigh's character of Rosie (the LoveInterest) meets Marco on the train and they have a [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment singularly bizarre conversation]]. Later she bails him out of jail and through a shorter but just as weird conversation we learn that she's left her fiancee for him despite only meeting him once. Then she has no impact on the rest of the movie at all other than to [[MsFanservice fill out some dresses]] very nicely. The very odd nature of Rosie and Marco's meeting and the general uselessness of her character have led some (including RogerEbert; see his review [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20031207/REVIEWS08/40802006/1023 here]]) to theorize that she's a DeepCoverAgent sent by the Chinese to keep an eye on Marco. Others guess that she's actually an American agent investigating the conspiracy, as [[spoiler: Jonathan Demme did with the character in the 2004 remake.]]
