A cinematic adaption of Arlo Guthrie's classic song story.
After discovering that the character "Officer Obie" was modeled after him, actual Stockbridge (Massachusetts) Sheriff William Obanhein demanded that he play the role himself. His reason: "If anyone is going to make a fool out of me, it might as well be me!"
Kid, what'd you get?
Arlo: I didn't get nothin'. I had to pay fifty dollars, and pick up the garbage.
Although Arlo's mother says after Woody Guthrie's death that there will be "no funeral," a private funeral service was held the day after Woody died, after which he was cremated and his ashes scattered at Coney Island.
