Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The character of Pappy O'Daniel is based on W. Lee (Pappy) O'Daniel who served as Governor of Texas (not Mississippi) from 1938-1942 and later as U.S. Senator. He was a flour baron with a radio show and sang with the Light Crust Doughboys. He was famous for refusing to vote in protest of the poll tax.
  • Sheriff Cooley is never referred to by name in the movie.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): All of the records shown in the film are turning at 33-1/3 RPM. In 1934, only 78 RPM was used. The first 33-1/3 RPM album was released in 1947.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The real W. Lee "Pappy" O'Daniel had no presence in the politics of Mississippi (where, until 1975, incumbent governors were not allowed to run for reelection anyway). He was a Texas flour salesman who became a regional radio personality (as host of broadcasts of Bob Wills and the Light Crust Doughboys), then used that as a platform to launch himself into Texas politics, becoming governor, then Senator. The filmmakers knew this.
