There are several subtle but precise references to adultery between Louis and Sibella but nothing is depicted beyond fully-clothed passionate embraces and kisses.

The Rector is seen to die by poison (closes his eyes and slumps into his chair).

Lady Agatha is seen breaking shop windows.

The Admiral is seen drowning (saluting as he po-faced goes under, with his hat left floating).

A bomb is seen to explode immediately in front of the General.

Louis slaps Lionel. They grapple. Lionel grabs a knife and Louis punches him out cold.

Gamekeeper Hoskins is heard beating a poacher with a stick.

The word "nigger" is used in the phrase "Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Mo. Catch a nigger by his toe. If he hollers, let him go. Out goes he" (a children's rhyme). It is then repeated twice in the same context by Louis and Sibella.

Louis takes a cigarette and asks Young Ascoigne for a match.
