* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: It is ''really'' hard to see what the big fuss is about this show unless you know the history of theater.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: One production managed to change how we view the entire cast and story by performing the musical completely normally, but with the only change being Jud is played by the only black man in the cast.

* DesignatedVillain: Jud is a big scary looking drunk, but the worst thing he ever did to deserve the scorn from Laurey was.. ask her out on a lovely night out on the town?And for that Curley tries getting him to kill himself? Eventually it all drives him over the edge into a drunken violent attack.

** Laurey mentions at one point that she can hear Jud walking about under her window every night. And yeah, then there's the whole story about a farmhand who apparently burned an entire family to death just because he saw the daughter with another guy - even in productions that don't focus on the implication that it was Jud, the context in which the story is told clearly implies that at the very least Jud might try something ''very'' similar if Laurey ends up with Curly. Plus he does try to kill Curly multiple times. You actually have to stretch further than you think to pass Jud off as the good guy.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The 50th Anniversary DVD presents the TODD-AO version with so much flickering and softness, and so many specks, that a lot of people consider it the ugliest DVD ever released by a major studio. To add insult to injury, the other disc presents the [=CinemaScope=] version in a way that makes it look near-perfect, despite using an inferior brand of film. Fortunately, the Blu-Ray released nine years later uses a newer 4K restoration of the TODD-AO presentation, which boasts ''much'' better picture quality than either disc of the 50th Anniversary set.

** Jud's commonly cut song ''Lonely Room'' can be taken in one of two ways, depending on the actor. One is a tragic man who has been rejected for so long, just wants somebody to love him but is constantly denied by the others for their selfish reasons. The other is a creepy man who will make Laurey his whether she likes it or not simply because he can.

* BrokenBase: The movie adaptation has one version filmed in 65mm TODD-AO, and one in 35mm [=CinemaScope=]. Practically each scene required twice as many takes as that of a normal movie (the cast would act out a scene a few times in front of TODD-AO cameras, then a few more times in front of [=CinemaScope=] cameras), which resulted in the versions boasting different line deliveries and compositions. Viewers seem torn over which version provides superior performances.
