Test your knowledge of this 90s love-on-the-lam story!
The action later changes to Los Angeles.
The voice-over is sparingly used and adds side notes, not key exposition of the plot.
Harvey Keitel's character in "Reservoir Dogs" mentions working with a thief called Alabama, but she seems too young to be the same character.
Clarence loves Elvis, but sees kung fu movies on this particular night.
Clarence offers to show Alabama a copy of "Spider-man No. 1" here.
Clarence's boss wanted him "to get laid" on his birthday, Alabama says.
Probably the audience is told this so they'll still think of Alabama as a "nice girl."
Clarence seems totally unfazed by the fact that she was just paid to spend the night with him.
Elvis was played by Val Kilmer in a cameo.
Drexl is only in one scene, but made a big impression on critics.
Drexl has a sideline in couriering for a local crime boss.
It's his consiglere, Don Vincenzo, who does the dirty work in the film, though.
The actor is perhaps best known for "Easy Rider," which he also directed.
He's getting off work early in the morning when we first see him.
Clarence, still traveling with the cocaine, wants to know if the cops are on his tail.
Clifford says it after kissing Alabama goodbye.
In one version of the script, though, Clarence was writing a screenplay as they drove West.
He later appeared in Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction."
The "Sicilian scene" is considered one of the movie's best.
We see the Cadillac in many parts of the movie, from Clarence's trip across town to Drexl's, to their cross-country trip.
This is really bad news for Alabama.
Speaking of Franco and Rogen, though, this scene was partly the inspiration for the later "Pineapple Express."
This turns the tide of the fight in Alabama's favor.
Saul Rubinek played the would-be wheeler-dealer.
His character's name, if you're keeping track, was "Elliiot Blitzer."
Naturally, the film producer has the penthouse.
Chris Penn was also "Nice Guy Eddie" in "Reservoir Dogs."
He's last seen running down the hall outside the penthouse.
The final scene shows them on a Mexican beach.
Tarantino's original script did not call for both Clarence and Alabama to survive.
Tarantino says that Brooke Shields, too, really wanted the role.
A lot of people assume Tarantino directed it, but he only wrote the screenplay.
Tarantino came up with the story, though the screenplay was altered significantly from his original ideas.
Neither Walken nor Madsen look notably Italian, TBH.
Speaking of which, Tarantino reportedly used the money from the "True Romance" script to buy the red Chevelle seen in "Pulp Fiction."
