* AdaptationalSexuality: Brick's homosexuality was all but erased in the 1958 film adaptation. As his deeply closeted sexuality was the character's entire motivation in the original script, this glossing-over was a major detriment that led to Tennessee Williams disowning the production.

* EmpathicEnvironment: In the movie version, a storm rises and starts to rage at the point where Brick and Big Daddy start arguing, it downpours (as if Nature itself were crying) when Big Daddy learns the truth about his illness, and the storm dissipates entirely once all of the conflict of the movie has been resolved. (At one point Big Daddy even compares the storm raging outside to the one raging inside his own house.)
