Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's homage to exploitation double features in the 60s and 70s with two back-to-back cult films that include previews of coming attractions between them.
After the sexual assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein went public in 2017, Robert Rodriguez revealed that Rose McGowan had confided to him that Weinstein had assaulted her as well. She had signed a nondisclosure agreement about it and had subsequently been blacklisted from any films the Weinsteins produced. Rodriguez said he cast McGowan to get even with him, knowing that his brother Bob Weinstein, who ran Dimension films, knew nothing of it, and that Harvey could not object without having to admit to his past.
Motherfucker try to rape me, I don't wanna give him a skin rash, I wanna shut that nigga down.
In the final scene of "Death Proof," when the Dodge Challenger forces the Charger to spin out and crash, the Charger's rear wheels are still on the car. As the girls approach the car in the next scene, one rear wheel (driver's side) is no longer in the car.
