Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood's golden age.
The TV at George Spahn's house has one of the earliest unwired remote controls. Rather than using infrared or similar technology, it uses ultra high frequency sound. The remote features four buttons, each which trips a spring-loaded hammer that strikes a metal reed. Each of the reeds is at a separate pitch, all of which are inaudible. One button was for turning the TV on, another for turning it off, one for raising the channel and one for lowering it. As the each button press makes a loud click, many people simply referred to the device as a "clicker". See more »
The city lights seen at night in the background from Rick's house are those of the San Fernando Valley. Such a view would not have been possible from Rick's Cielo Drive residence, next to Sharon Tate's house, up in Beverly Glen. According to IMDb, the site for filming Rick's house was 10969 Alta Vista Drive, Studio City, which overlooks the San Fernando Valley, thus explaining the erroneous (though photogenic) view.

This film breaks the motif of denoting "The (number) film by Quentin Tarantino" in the opening or ending credits; instead it simply states "Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino." See more »
The version of the film that screened at The Cannes Film Festival was 159 minutes, two minutes shorter than the version released in theaters in the US. Tarantino reportedly added in more scenes of Sharon Tate, including extending the scene where she picks up a hitchhiker. See more »
Another great Tarantino film, though I do agree there are times where it feels a little indulgent and meandering. The climax of the film is fantastic though, and it does make it feel like it was all worth it for the most part. There isn't really a defined narrative, which may put some people off but Tarantino's sublime dialogue and the great performances make all of the scenes at least entertaining. It's no Pulp Fiction, but it definitely is one of the most original films I've seen in a while.
