Trivia

In a 2009 interview with the Houston, Texas, magazine "OutSmart," Tom Hulce said that while they were shooting this movie outside of Atlanta, Georgia, there was a call for extras to appear in a Ku Klux Klan rally scene, and some of the potential extras brought their own personal Klan outfits. Hulce called that "a little tense". See more »

19 July 2000 | by (Colorado Springs) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed it. This is a wonderful movie and I like to watch it before I watch "Mississippi Burning," although I think this is the better of the two movies. I have been reading up on these murders and the only thing I noticed that was off, was that the film created a friction between Mickey & James that never existed.
