Did You Know?


At the end of the episode, a cover of Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" plays over the closing credits. The song was used as the title of the film Stand by Me (1986), which is based on another Stephen King work: a novella entitled The Body. See more »


While Jake is observing Bill and Lee on the porch handling Lee's rifle, a VW bus parked behind Jake is visible. Based on the headlight styling, this is a 1968 or later model. Headlights on 1967 and earlier had a glass bubble enclosure, while 1968 and later models lost the glass bubble, and adopted a simple vertical headlight with a chrome rim. See more »

Just to correct the review above: Oswald's rifle was a war surplus Italian 6.5 mm Carcano carbine. It had a six round internal magazine and, once loaded, would fire six times before reloading was required. The bolt action had to be worked to chamber each round but they did not have to be loaded one at a time.

Bought mine for five bucks in 1961. :)

P.S. If yer an R. Lee Ermey fan you know where Oswald learned to shoot.
