* FunnyMoments:
** Silva has Baby Doll cornered in the attic. She's cowered on a rafter, and Silva hands her over a document for her to sign proving that Archie Lee burned down the cotton gin, stapled down to a long beam that he found. She finally gives in and bursts into tears, and he retracts the beam. Then he extends the beam again, this time with a handkerchief attached to it.
** Silva's suggestive grinding of a rocking horse to Smiley Lewis' 'Shame, Shame, Shame'.
** The whole ScoobyDoobyDoors sequence of Baby Doll and Silva chasing each other around the upper floor.

** Silva is proud, spiteful and vengeful. He cajoles Baby Doll into the affair without a second thought and blackmails her into proof that Archie Lee did burn down his gin. However, he suffers racial prejudice as a Sicilian in Mississippi, and has had to work hard to be a successful businessman in spite of it. When Archie Lee burns his gin down, Silva feels for a moment that all of his hard work was for nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: It was incredibly scandalous for 1956, but as of today it seems rather tame, with Baby Doll's affair with Silva to have only been implied.
