Lolly-Madonna XXX: Unique Aspects

In a previous post, I discussed the typical stereotypes which didn’t match the “hillbilly” criteria for the Feather and Gutshall neighbors. For this post, I will mention briefly the unique aspects of this film and the not as unique part.

The Unique Characteristics:

  1. It was filmed in the Southeastern United States. The majority of Hollywood films would be either filmed in California or New York.
  2. You see two families competing against land which is similar to the story about The Hatfields and McCoys.
  3. The Gutshall crew stuck together like glue whereas the Feather crew continuously fought each other until Thrush dies.
  4. Great film, but with a confusing plot.

The Unoriginal Characteristics:

  • It doesn’t have a southern atmosphere to it, although they reside in the mountains.
  • They are portrayed as silly, mentally imbalanced and overbearing characters.
  • The plot doesn’t make sense, other than the Feather crew kidnapping the wrong woman whose name was supposed to be “Lolly-Madonna.”
  • The southern accents are not accurate except for one.
