New York City writing professor, Frannie Avery, has an affair with a police detective, who is investigating the murder of a beautiful young woman in her neighborhood.
The lines, "Oh what can ail thee, knight-at-arms, Alone and palely loitering?...", are from "La Belle Dane Sans Merci" by John Keats.
What does "broccoli" mean"?
Frannie: Depends on the context. Pubic hair or marijuana. It's a noun.
Pauline: And "Virginia"?
Frannie: Vagina. As in, "He penetrated her Virginia with a hammer".
55 & 1/2 minutes into the film: Frannie and Cornelius are outside the Baby Doll bar and saying goodbye as Frannie is going upstairs to visit Pauline. He takes Frannie's left hand and kisses it but in the next shot he's holding her right hand.
There is a typo in the credits - 'transportation' is spelt 'tranportation' (missing the 's')
