Synopsis
Sailor Ripley is a violent ex-convict with an Elvis fixation who falls in love with Lula Fortune, the daughter of a rich, but mentally unstable, Southern belle named Marietta. Just after Sailor is released from prison, where he was jailed for brutally killing one of Marietta's thugs, he and Lula take off on a wild cross-country trip, pursued by his parole officer, her mother, criminals, bounty hunters, and detectives. Along the way, Sailor and Lula have a lot of sex, share their pasts, share their respective obsessions for Elvis and The Wizard of Oz, and meet a lot of bizarre characters, including a seedy ex-marine who persuades Sailor to participate in a bank robbery.
