The first reviewer noted a similarity to the 1973 film, Badlands. Well, here's why. Interestingly enough, as Terrence Malick was making Badlands, first-time feature director George Hood was shooting "Rockaday Richie And The Queen Of The Hop" (the film's original title) in Portland, Oregon.
I was the production sound mixer and sound editor for the film. We were all taken by surprise when we found out that both Badlands and our low budget indie were based on the same story of Charles Starkweather's murder spree.
Tiger and Bobby Warren were the executive producers and scraped together the budget while the crew put heart and soul into the film.
In the end, Badlands was released first, as I recall, and had studio backing. It was a while before "Richie" was renamed "Stark Raving Mad" and found limited theatrical release and, eventually, video.
