Raising Arizona

Trivia: In several scenes where H.I. is in the factory where he works his work suit has a "Hudsucker Industries" patch on it. The Cohen brothers who directed and produced the movie also put out a movie a few years back called "The Hudsucker Proxy."

Trivia: When the biker is riding into town in HI's dream and throws a grenade at a rabbit, it resembles the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail where they throw the Holy Hand Grenade at the killer rabbit.

Trivia: When H.I. is robbing the convenience store while Ed and the baby wait in the car, listen to the music coming over the store's PA. It's a cheesy muzak version of the banjo music used throughout the film.

Trivia: In the opening montage a picture appears repeatedly on the wall in nearly all of the different locations, all of the same person, an older man with glasses in a gray or black suit. It is in the police station, parole review, wedding, doctors office, and adoption agency. It is likely an homage.

Continuity mistake: When Hi, Gale and Evelle are sitting in the trailer talking about robbing the bank, watch the newspaper on Hi's lap. It goes from being folded to being fully opened in his hands between shots.

H.I.: Do you ever get the feeling that there's something... Powerful pressing down on you?
Glen: Yes, I know that feeling. I told Dot to lose some weight but she don't wanna listen.
