** Averted in the Trevor Nunn revival: the town still doesn't want to lock Curly up on his wedding night, but they ''do'' take the hastily set-up trial seriously. There's even an anxious moment when Curly fears a farmer he fought with earlier will testify against him.

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Laurey and Curly have an ''entire song'' about how obvious their mutual feelings are to everyone around them in "People Will Say We're In Love".

* FelonyMisdemeanor: Laurey is horrified over this, weeps over this, has nightmares over this. Curly would rather see Jud dead than let him go through with this. Curly sells every prized possession he has to stop this from happening. And in the end Jud ''DIES'' over this. The crime? Asking Laurey out on a date, taking her to a party, and bidding on a picnic basket.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The ad for the general theatrical release of the [=CinemaScope=] version of the movie revealed who Laurey would pick, and how the other man would exact his revenge. Ads for the movie's home video releases also tend to spoil the former.

(Text in the trailer seems to basically state, "[[ItWasHisSled This musical has become so famous by now, that everyone knows how the story goes.]]") Ads for the movie's home video releases also tend to spoil the former.

** It's mentioned that he (almost definitely) stalks Laurey on almost a nightly basis by [[ThePeepingTom hanging out underneath her window]], and even in productions that choose to ignore the implication that [[spoiler: he murdered his previous employers]], considering that story is told during a conversation about how he might go about getting revenge on someone, it's clear that he's at least considering doing something similar if Laurey chooses Curly. And that's to say nothing of the [[spoiler: multiple murder attempts]] we actually ''do'' see...
