The things you folks notice! Yes, that is a p-38. Sadly I don’t have a good answer. I’ve never paid much attention to what people wear, including myself, so as a director I’m very dependent on the wardrobe people to come up with a character’s look based on the script. I was probably asked about it at the time and obviously okayed it, but don’t remember what the reasoning was (given that, yes, Grady never uses it). Over the years re-watching the movie I’ve never noticed it. All the more ironic because I still have my original GI issue p-38 and used to use it a lot on camping trips.
Is there a reason that Grady has what looks to be a P-38 can opener around his neck (the whole movie!)? He wore it as he was recruiting Earl for the Graboid hunt, so it wasn’t for any cans of food that the Mexican army was offering to him and Earl? Was Grady just a lonely bachelor who ate canned food a lot? was last modified: March 19th, 2021 by
