Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: Lonesome shouting to Marcia at the end of the film is reminiscent of "HEY STELLA!", which makes sense since Creator/EliaKazan directed ''Film/AStreetcarNamedDesire''.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In-universe. Part of the rebranding for Vitajex that Rhodes masterminds involves hinting as much as possible for TV in TheFifties that it boosts the male sex drive.


Added DiffLines:

* SnakeOilSalesman: Lonesome Rhodes becomes massively popular as a pitchman for Vitajex, a pill that's basically just a mix of aspirin, caffeine and sugar, which he touts as an energy booster.

* LineOfSightNickname: When Larry Rhodes won't tell Marcia his first name during her jail radio show remote, she spontaneously dubs him "Lonesome", which ends up sticking.

Added DiffLines:

* HitlerCam: Used effectively on Lonesome when he's giving his deranged, drunken speech in his penthouse late in the film, clearly meant to be a DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything nod to Hitler himself.

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: Would likely be a DownerEnding if not for Miller's media savvy analysis accompanying the whole thing; noting that Lonesome will likely be able to revive some of his career, but his days as a powerful icon are over, and while Marsha is still shaken from the ordeal, she is comforted mildly by Miller informing her she only proved stronger seeing Lonesome away.

Added DiffLines:

* DrivenToSuicide: Averted. Lonesome insists that he's going to jump off the building if Marsha leaves him, but Mel dismisses the threat, since Lonesome is too self-centered to ever kill himself.
