- Awesome Music: George Delerue's triumphant main theme "Grand Choral", written and scored in the form of a baroque trumpet concerto. Doubles as an anthem of the art of filmmaking, and is often used as a standard snippet e. g. for news coverage of film festivals etc.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Ferrand says in one scene, The Godfather is showing all over Nice, and it's killing the other movies. Later, this film would lose an Oscar to The Godfather Part II.
YMMV / Day for Night
