Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalNameChange: The name of Alvin Straight's brother was changed from Henry to Lyle, mainly due to Alvin's brother not wanting his real name used in the film.

* GoshDangItToHeck: Not in the movie, but a meta-example. Richard Farnsworth was going to turn down the film because he didn't like the language in ''BlueVelvet''. Only after several personal assurances by Lynch and the other writers that the film would contain no cursing did he agree to do it.
