- Adaptation Displacement: Most people don't know this is a remake of a 1933 film, especially in America where the Moral Guardians of the 1930's never allowed the film to be screened in the US.
- Heartwarming Moments:
Toddy: Vous.(tosses rose from stage to a beaming Squash)
- The performance by Toddy and Victoria of "You And Me". Best friends after a few days.
- Painful Rhyme: In the stage version, Norma's song "Paris Makes Me Horny" is rife with these. Eventually it became a Cut Song.
- Playing Against Type: This is one of several films Julie Andrews did with her producer/director/writer husband Blake Edwards that has her playing against the sugary image that Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music locked her into in The '60s.
- Signature Scene: Julie Andrews singing "Le Jazz Hot!"
- What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The film is rated PG, and it does star Julie Andrews, and it's a musical, but it's intended for adults. (It helps that the movie came out in 1982. The PG-13 rating wasn't created until 1984.) That said, in terms of vulgarity, it's no worse than primetime TV or any given James Bond film. If parents are fine with mobsters, gay romance, Drag Queens, implied sex and a teensy bit of language ("Honey, I'm horny!"), there's nothing to stop them from enjoying it with their pre-teens.
