The language is very mild, consisting mainly of “hells” and “damns.”
Many of the characters are seen drinking (beer, gin, champagne, Manhattans, etc.), sometimes to excess (“Seven is my limit”). A classic Cole Porter song contains this famous lyric: “Some get a kick from cocaine / I’m sure that if I took even one sniff / That would bore me terrific’lly too / Yet I get a kick out of you.”
None; gangsters are seen carrying guns that are not used.
References to sexual behavior are implied rather than explicit. Billy and Hope reminisce about their first meeting when they had a little too much wine and took a cab for “a little spin around the park” lasting five hours.
Erma, a gangster’s moll, describes her assignations with a few of the sailors, using sexual innuendoes. Sample: “A certain sailor is going to show me the fine points of stoking.” Later Erma will be seen hiding in a lifeboat with two sailors who “look exhausted, but pleasantly so;” she will steal one of their uniforms for use as a disguise.
Lord Evelyn Oakleigh recalls a Chinese girl named Plum Blossom with whom he had “an unpremeditated romp in the rice.”
