* RoleEndingMisdemeanor: [invoked] In-Universe, after Rhodes' ugly opinions of the audience are leaked out to the public, he quickly loses his endorsement deals. While it's likely he'll revive his career, Miller notes that he'll never get as powerful as he used to be, and will more than likely be forgotten after a while.

* TheManIsStickingItToTheMan: Both Kazan and Schulberg were interested in exploring how this happens and offering a {{Deconstruction}} in this film, showing how anti-establishment rhetoric, even that which, as in the case of Rhodes, originally came from a genuine and sincere place can easily be co-opted and managed by state and corporations for the benefit of the establishment. Schulberg noted that he was inspired by the fact that several famous comics like Will Rogers in TheThirties came to support New Deal and FDR and other legislation through their populist pieces even if privately they disagreed with those same policies and were more conservative than they let on.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Slipped in here and there by Kazan and Schulberg, just to give a somewhat less romanticized portrait of the South than most works at the time; for example, when we first meet "Uncle" J.B., the station manager of KGRK, he's getting his shoes shined by a black attendant that he jovially pats on the head like a dog.

Lonesome bringing a black woman onto his show is also treated as a big deal.

* 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.
