The book makes reference to the movie "Summer and Smoke", but incorrectly names Paul Newman as the co-star with Geraldine Page in that film, rather than her actual co-star Lawrence Harvey. Lee Remick was also in "Summer and Smoke" See more »
During the Motorcycle race, Hank takes a spill and gets an entire left side caked with wet mud. The rest of the race and picnic, the level of mud on Hank's clothes changes back and forth from muddy to not so muddy. See more »
Having seen this movie twice (once under each name) I can say that I enjoyed it both times. The big name actors and actresses plus a neat storyline make it worthwhile to see. Kind of the little guy against the big guy. The last scene is great!
