My dog barks, some. Mentally you picture my dog, but I have not told you the type o' dog which I have. Perhaps you might even picture Toto... from "The Wizard of Oz." But I can tell you, my dog is all ways with me. ARF!
(at around 10 mins) Lula talks about her Uncle Pooch dying in a car accident while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. As she speaks,a car is shown crashing down a mountainous ravine and bursting into flames. The goof: Myrtle Beach is a flat seaside town and there are no mountains or ravines like those shown for hundreds of miles around.
The ending credits play over footage of Sailor singing "Love Me Tender" to Lula, rather than a black screen.
The original Australian theatrical release of "Wild at Heart" started with a short scene in which Nicholas Cage is seen having sex with Laura Dern's mother in a toilet cubicle. This scene has been excised from the Region 4 DVD release and instead the film starts with an unsubstantiated accusation of this, just before the fight.
