* NotSoDifferent: Averted in the final cut of the film, but Lugosi's heroic character was originally set to be not that much better than Karloff's evil priest. It was only thanks to script changes for the audience's sake that he ended up as completely wronged and justified in his revenge against Poelzig.

* DyingDream: A popular interpretation of the film is that it's all in Werdegast's head in the prison camp. A more upbeat version is that he really is Poelzig's friend and he just fell asleep on the train and had a nightmare.
