An alcoholic drifter spends Halloween in his home town of Albany, New York after returning there for the first time in decades.
One of three cinema movies released in 1987 that featured Jack Nicholson. The others were a cameo appearance as Bill Rorish in Broadcast News (1987), and as the devil Daryl Van Horne in The Witches of Eastwick (1987).
Oh God, it's too damn cold out here. Hey, Francis.
Francis Phelan: Hey, Pee Wee.
Pee Wee: Have you come back?
Francis Phelan: Yeah. You, uh, seen Helen around?
Pee Wee: No. I haven't seen her in a couple days.
Francis Phelan: Well, I'll catch up with her.
When Francis returns to his wife's house, the kitchen floor has 12-inch vinyl composite tiles (VCT tiles). While VCT did exist in the 1930s, they were only in the 9 inch size. 12 inch VCTs were not made until the 1970s.
