Interesting side note about Quentin Tarentino. When I was in first grade, Tarentino was a 5th grader at the same school. There was drive in theater a few blocks from where I live now, where Terentino says he first developed his love for movies. I remember going there as a kid and seeing "Walking Tall".

Too bad Tarentino doesn't do a D.B. Cooper movie. Probably wouldn't be factual, but it would damn entertaining.

Tarentino has passed his movie making wisdom to the younger generation.

It seems that when Tarentino was in his late teens, he worked at a video rental store in the southern part of the Los Angeles area.  One of his customers was an early teenager named Danny Strong.  Strong and Tarentino used to have long talks about movies at that store.

I understand that Danny Strong graduated from the USC film school and now has established a career as an actor, writer, director, producer, and who knows what else.  Recently, Strong has been an actor on the "Billions" cable program.  He wrote, directed, and produced the recent "Rebel in the Rye" program on HBO (?) about J. D. Salinger.

Personally, I prefer Strong's movies over the "dark" movies that Tarentino makes.

Parrotheadvol, did you go to school with Danny Strong also?

Id see no problem doing a movie based on D B Cooper that wasnt pretending to be a true story ! Base the movie and known facts of hyjacking and POSSIBLE conclusions. Interesting to have gone to school with such a great Producer!

I turned into the last episode of Mad Men, only because I heard rumor that Draper may be Cooper and hijack the plane...was disappointed when it didn't happen.

Nope. It was in Tennessee where I was at the same school as Tarentino. He was only in that area for a very short time but it seems to have had a great impact on him. He makes several Tennessee references in his movies:

I was also disappointed. Draper's night jump out of a 727 would have been sooo much better than that insipid CocaCola ad ending.

I do think that was a gigantic opportunity missed by the MadMen writers/producer.... Imagine the episode they could have created with all the known facts of the flight, and then the series culminating with him jumping into the dark blue.... Couldn't get better than that to end the show right there, especially because this caper hasn't been solved, and the endearing and long lasting effect that stay with the viewers...  that'd have been greatness.
