* 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.

* 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]].

'''''The Picture of Dorian Gray''''' (1890) was Creator/OscarWilde's only novel, naturally rife with witty banter and homo-eroticism. Blond PrettyBoy Dorian is {{the muse}} for the talented artist Basil Hallward. Dorian, gifted with incredible beauty, is a thoughtless and happy young man until the day that he comes to Hallward's house to see the unveiling of the artist's latest masterpiece -- the eponymous portrait. There, he meets Lord Henry, who with a few casual words, instils the fear of aging and decrepitude into Dorian's young, impressionable heart. Dorian is greatly troubled, and when Basil brings the portrait out and unveils it, its beauty hurts Dorian so much that he exclaims he would sell his soul for his painting to age in his place.
