The film is seen being displayed on Shosanna's cinema, in the night when she met Frederick Zoller. In the tavern, Archie Hicox claims he was born in a village near Piz Palu, and that he and his brother both appeared in the said film. He claims that his bizare accent originates from that place.

In the card game played with Major Hellstrom, Von Hammersmark wears a card on her head that has "G.W. Pabst" written on it, the director of the film.
