I wonder what would happen if you watch all these movies, especially checking for the presence or absence of feet.

MUSKETEERS features some of his homeboys, Waltz and Schweiger. In fact, I don't think Quinty's buddy, Christoph Waltz was in a movie that didn't make it on that list somewhere. He even put THE GREEN HORNET on there.

I guess that one slipped his mind, or maybe putting 4 Waltz movies on his list felt excessive, even for Quinty. Or maybe he just needed to leave some room for Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender.

Classic Movies that Influenced Quentin Tarantino

Sandy Lucas wrote:
Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein’ - 1948
As a five year old, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein was Tarantino’s favorite movie. “The spookiest laugh fest on record” was named one of the top 100 funniest films of all time by Reader’s Digest, the first in a series where the inept comedy duo met Universal’s classic monsters. The pair play deliverymen charged with depositing Dracula and Frankenstein's monster at their final resting place: a wax museum. But the monsters revolt, and try to snatch Lou's brain. Tarantino credits the film with teaching him that horror and comedy can overlap, often with stunning results. He has described his own Kill Bill as “Funny. Solemn. Beautiful. Gross. All at the same time."


‘Rio Bravo’ - 1959
A small-town Texas sheriff (John Wayne) enlists a drunk (Dean Martin), a kid (Ricky Nelson) and a dyspeptic old man to help him fight off a ruthless cattle baron. Tarantino has cited this film, directed by Howard Hawks, as his favorite movie of all time. “When I’m getting serious about a girl, I show her Rio Bravo and she better $@#&*%! like it.” One of the many films Tarantino references in his screenplay True Romance.(Bonus: Dean and Ricky sing too!)


'His Girl Friday' - 1940
Cary Grant does everything he can to sabotage his ex-wife’s plans to marry a bland insurance salesman in Howard Hawks’ screwball comedy. Rosalind Russell co-stars as a spitfire newspaper reporter and Grant’s ex-wife. Tarantino has admitted to being strongly influenced by writer Ben Hecht’s snappy dialogue, in the second film made from Hecht’s successful stage play. On the first page of his Pulp Fiction screenplay, Tarantino describes two characters talking “in rapid-fire motion like His Girl Friday.”
