In 1942 California, two young men await induction into the U.S. Marines and say goodbye to their girlfriends.
Actress Elizabeth McGovern worked on this picture pretty much back-to-back after finishing principal photography on Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in America (1984).
Henry 'Hopper' Nash/Lou:
Nicky, don't you ever think about anything but hiking up some girl's dress?
Nicky: Like what?
Henry 'Hopper' Nash/Lou: Like, I don't know...
Henry 'Hopper' Nash/Lou: Like the future, son.
While sitting at a table talking with Henry, we see Nicky (Nicolas Cage) light a cigarette by striking a match on the back of a matchbook, however in 1942 matchbooks were front-strike until a new regulation in 1973 deemed front-strike too dangerous.
