A tale of corruption and obsession that is surprisingly dark for the author of ''TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest''. This story was used as evidence against Wilde and resulted in him being prosecuted for homosexuality and sentenced to two years hard labor. A very good Halloween read.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the original novel, Dorian was blond. In every modern adaptation (the 1970 one with Helmut Berger is a notable exception), he's portrayed with black hair. It has a lot to do with the way beauty standards have changed over time.

* TheChanteuse: In the 1945 film Sibyl is a vaudeville singer rather than a stage actress. Angela Lansbury's performance of "Goodbye Little Yellow Bird" is a highlight of the film.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Many adaptations give Dorian dark hair, partly due to changing beauty standards.

* BlondGuysAreEvil: Dorian Gray. Despite the fact that he's sometimes presented as having black hair. In fact, the only characters in the book stated to have black hair are Basil Hallward and Alan Campbell, both of which [[TheWoobie come across as much more sympathetic]].
