In Detroit, a lonely pop culture geek marries a call girl, steals cocaine from her pimp, and tries to sell it in Hollywood. Meanwhile, the owners of the cocaine, the Mob, track them down in an attempt to reclaim it.
Clarence offers to show Alabama Spider-Man #1 at the comic book store. He probably was referring to Amazing Spider-Man #1 published in 1963, one of the most sought-after modern superhero comic books. The value is extremely dependent on condition, but as of 2009, even a well-worn issue would bring at least one thousand dollars, and a perfect pristine copy, might sell at auction for close to one hundred thousand dollars.
In Jailhouse Rock he was everything rockabilly's about. I mean, he is rockabilly. Mean, surly, nasty, rude. In that movie he couldn't give a fuck about nothing except rockin' and rollin', living fast, dying young and leaving a good-looking corpse.
When Alabama is being beaten up by Virgil, her face is bloodied early on. But when Virgil tosses her onto a half-wall and she slides across it, the blood vanishes from her face as she hits the wall (stunt double), and then reappears in the next shot.
In the first release of the Unrated Director's Cut on DVD in the US, Clarence's "I'd fuck Elvis" speech is the original version as he talks more in-depth about a particular scene in Jailhouse Rock. In the re-release of the Unrated Director's Cut (in the 2-disc special edition), some of the dialog from Clarence is cut.
