  • The camera shot of the resurrected Elizabeth Helm looking at herself in the mirror while putting on lipstick is identical to the shot of Lauren looking at herself in the mirror in Of All the Gin Joints, as she removes the film with DNA from her lips — except for the positions being transposed.
  • Tomoe Gozen was a warrior woman in Japanese history. A female samurai during the late twelfth century, she is known for beheading Honda no Moroshige of Musashi, killing Uchida Ieyoshi, and escaping capture by Hatakeyama Shigetada.
