  • Armored Closet Gay: Some fans have suggested that Major Strasser is either this or a Depraved Homosexual.
    • Or it might just be Conrad Veidt being Conrad Veidt. He was a fine actor, bless his heart, but watch any of his sound films and his flamboyant bisexuality always leaks through. (Note that Strasser does not only leer at the guys, but also leers at Ilsa...)
    • Also—and let's be honest about this—anything Nazi is going to be at least a little bit gay-seeming (as Jon Stewart & Co. put it, Hitler basically turned all Germany into "a smelly, homoerotic gym class").

safed_sher, YMMV pages are for YMMV items only. No objective tropes allowed. Putting tropes here in order to dodge Examples Are Not Arguable is a violation of wiki policy. Furthermore, those two second-level bullet points are natter.
