A laconic, chain-smoking barber blackmails his wife's boss and lover for money to invest in dry cleaning, but his plan goes terribly wrong.
In the director's commentary and in interviews, Billy Bob Thornton states that filming this movie helped him quit smoking, because he would be constantly chain-smoking during shooting, and would then have a cigarette of his own in his trailer, and this served to put him off the habit. However, he can be seen smoking in the documentary 'Lemmy' made a few years later, so it would seem he took it up again later.
Yeah, I worked in a barbershop, but I never considered myself a barber. I stumbled into it. Or married into it, more precisely.
When Doris is in jail and is talking to Ed across the table, when the camera is behind Ed's shoulder, smoke is billowing from the cigarette, but when the camera switches to the one behind Doris' shoulder, no smoke is coming from the cigarette.

Though original intended to be released in black and white, the movie was originally shot in color. Some countries released the movie in color (e.g. Japan) for marketing reasons. Both versions are released on home media.
