Need help with a movie title

Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Moderator: Charlie Phillips

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

1930s, Guy hits his wife and friends take him out back, kill him and dump his car in a stream. They run a BBQ stand and the cops that come to investigate end up eating the ribs (evidence) I cant recall the name. Hell, Im getting old.
Anybody recall?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101921/ and it looks like the Chinese title is a direct translation, which is unusual. By the way, a friend recently told me that the original novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, by Fannie Flagg, is also an amazing book.
