Movie Quote(s):
  • Roger Grimes: You gonna be da' worm face!
  • Sheriff: [making love to his girl in an empty jail cell] How do you like the accomodations? The Sheriff's Girl: Just fine, honey!
  • Sheriff: If your daddy was alive he'd tan your fanny!
Movie Trivia:
  • Once in the 1980s, WPIX-TV in New York accidentally showed the film in black-and-white. Instead of complaining, Jeff Lieberman called the station and mentioned how much he loved the way the film looked. In fact, Lieberman prefers people to watch the film in black-and-white even though a black-and-white version is not available. Instead, you should turn the color down all the way on your television set.
  • Kim Basinger auditioned for the female lead.
  • Sylvester Stallone eagerly pursued the casting agents for the part of Roger, and Martin Sheen was briefly attached to the project to play Mick.
  • According to director Jeff Lieberman, the reason actress Jean Sullivan spoke with such an exaggerated southern accent was because she was a fan of Tennessee Williams and was playing homage to him.
  • During the production there was a mix up with the film processing lab. Footage from a wedding was accidentally sent to Lieberman and B roll footage of worms for the film was sent to the newlyweds!
