PG-13 | | Adventure, Comedy, Crime
In the deep south during the 1930s, three escaped convicts search for hidden treasure while a relentless lawman pursues them.
Director Trademark: [fricassee] Dan Teague tells Everett "Thanks for the fricassee," in the picnic scene under the tree. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen also included this dish in Fargo (1996) when Margie and Norm are eating in a restaurant and another cop asks her, "How's the fricassee?".
Ulysses Everett McGill:
Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?
While Everett eats some stolen pie, he throws his newspaper into the fire. As the first page of the newspaper burns away to reveal the second page, a piece of masking tape is visible attached to the left side of the second page. The tape holds the second page flat enough that it doesn't burn or curl quickly, so that movie viewers can read the second-page headline, "Soggy Bottom Boys A Sensation - But Who Are They?"
