Loosely based on Rosamond Marshall’s novel, The Bixby Girls, the film also incorporates some biographical details from the life of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker mixed in with a dash of Tennessee Williams Southern Gothic. Wagner and Wood play a white trash couple from Texas. He wants to be a musician, she wants to be rich. Although trashed by critics and ignored by audiences when first released, it has gone on to achieve cult status for the teaming of Wood and Wagner and its glaring absence on the home video market.
