* JerkassWoobie: Cantor Rabinowitz, a {{jerkass}} for how he violently rejects his son's lifestyle, and a [[TheWoobie woobie]] for having his own way of life - and years of tutoring - rejected by his son. And then he becomes terminally ill.
* OvershadowedByControversy: An otherwise important milestone in the history of sound in film, and the details that receive the most attention are the moments in which Jack dons the {{blackface}}. The context in which it's used - that Jack is a Jewish performer [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this trope - further invites discussion on the film's themes of race.[[note]]In his review of the film with Lady Jess, The Rap Critic, even after being forced to hold his tongue for the entirety of the movie so as to judge it on it's own merrits, outright said that he didn't care about any of the film's positives that he acknowledged, he still hated it because he doesn't believe that there's any justification for blackface.[[/note]]
