Quentin Tarantino Fun Facts

Quentin Tarantino, a man who is responsible for some of my favorite movies including Reservoir Dogs and most of all, True Romance. He has acted, directed, written, and produced just about 20+ films in each category all of which are an interesting ride from start to finish. Tarantino has created a completely new movie going experience and with that comes a lot of reoccurring themes and intricacies that make his films even that much more enjoyable.

Today is his birthday. To celebrate his birthday we put together a couple Quentin Tarantino Fun Facts for your viewing pleasure.

Quentin Tarantino Fun Facts:

Quentin Tarantino made an appearance on the late 80s/early 90s sitcom Golden Girls. Elvis is a reoccurring theme with Tarantino.

Product Placement in Tarantino’s Movies:

Tarantino hates product placement and makes up his own brands instead, this ultimately adds to his movies’ surreal feel. From Cigarettes to Burger Joints, he creates unique brands that sometimes intermingle in-between his catalog of films.

A fictional cigarette brand. They can be seen in Pulp Fiction, From Dusk Till Dawn, Four Rooms, Kill Bill: Volume 1, Grindhouse’s Planet Terror, Inglourious Basterds and a scene in Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.

One of the real “Monster Brands” of General Mills cereals. The Fruit Brute series was discontinued so QT uses it in his films. Other flavors include: Booberry, Count Chocula and Yummy Mummy.

Is Jack Rabbit Slim’s in Pulp Fiction a real restaurant? The answer to that question is, No. But Jack Rabbit Slim’s is referenced in Reservoir Dogs in a radio advertisement and is also where the famous dance scene takes place between Uma Thurman (Mia Wallace) and Jonathan Travolta (Vincent Vega) in Pulp Fiction.

 Woman’s Feet in Tarantino’s Movies:

Tarantino loves female feet. He’s obsessed with them. And that’s why he’ll try his best to have as many shots as possible of the feet of the actresses (and even extras) in his movies. Here is a quick list of some actresses who have shown their feet in Tarantino movies: Uma Thurman, Angela Jones, Jennifer Beals, Bridget Fonda, Lucy Liu, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Bell, Mélanie Laurent.
