R | | Action, Adventure, Drama
A nameless drifter dons a postman's uniform and bag of mail as he begins a quest to inspire hope to the survivors living in post-apocalyptic America.
It was the extras that referred to the production as "Dirt World". This was never to be spoken within earshot of Kevin Costner, because he would fire anyone he heard saying it.
Uh... Strangers... I hate this. Do they want to share what they got or take what you got? Do you say 'hi' or do you blow them away?
When the soon-to-be Postman removes the jacket from the skeletal remains of the actual mail carrier, an oil lighter falls from a pocket. With difficulties, it lights...although it shouldn't have lighted at all. These lighters are far from air-tight, and the fluid in it would have long before evaporated.
