Though pains were no doubt made to ensure that the "mirror-image" flashback set for all 1955 scenes appears to be the exact opposite of the set for 1975 scenes, packaging for the many GE light bulbs stored on a back shelf in 1955 are not reversed as they should be (though the large GE sign above is correctly reversed).

Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean is from Altmans most maligned period. His play adaptations don't quite get the recognition like his other works. Jimmy Dean shows Altman at his most disciplined and stands out as one of Altmans most inventive works. Exuding a feel of claustrophobia, the story takes place entirely in a five & dime store in some obscure Texas town. Four women played by Sandy Dennis, Cher, Marta Heflin and Kathy Bateshave come together for a twenty year reunion of a James Dean fan club they made when James Dean was filming Giant in a nearby town. As the story unfolds some startling revelations are brought to light as they discuss secrets and painful memories during the period when they had the James Dean fan club. Karen Black's character who shows up in the latter part of the film is an integral part of the story and Sandy Dennis' supposed relationship with James Dean, but I won't divulge that. Highly recommended.
