Trivia

During the scene in which George Spahn is struggling to identify Cliff Booth, he mishears his name as John Wilkes Booth. John Wilkes Booth was the man who assassinated president Abraham Lincoln on April 15 1865. The woman who questions Cliff before allowing him to enter, and sitting one room away from this exchange, is infamous Charles Manson acolyte Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme. On September 5 1975, Fromme made an unsuccessful attempt to assassinate President Gerald Ford. Interestingly, Lincoln was assassinated in Ford's Theatre in Washington DC, and Fromme's attempt on Ford was in Capitol Park after he had entered from Lincoln street in Sacramento, California.

In the Spahn Ranchhouse, after Cliff Booth enters, on a table against the far wall is a famous bronze sculpture by Remington. It is facing to the right. A minute or two later it is facing to the left. See more »

User Reviews

 
One of the Tarantino's worst (if not worst).
23 August 2019 | by Misty_JadeSee all my reviews

Cinematography - great, acting - great. Music- reused already written works. Plot - none. Just almost 3+ hours worth of some random scenes stiched together without leading anywhere. Watched it twice. Has not changed my opinion. By the time it ended I did not care anymore, I just wanted to pee!!! After sitting there for almost 3 hours. What was the point of this movie? Still wondering. One of the Tarantino's worst (if not worst!).
