It would be the inspiration for the name of pioneering Seattle grunge band Mudhoney when they formed in 1988. American singer-songwriter Norah Jones' album cover for Little Broken Hearts is inspired by Mudhoney's poster.
In this Depression-era tale, Calif McKinney (John Furlong) is traveling from Michigan to California and stops in Spooner, Missouri, where Lute Wade (Stuart Lancaster) hires McKinney for odd jobs. McKinney gets involved with Wade's niece, Hannah Brenshaw (Antoinette Christiani). She is married to Sidney (Hal Hopper), a wife-beating drunk who hopes to inherit his uncle-in-law's money. Sidney and an eccentric preacher named Brother Hanson (Frank Bolger) plot against McKinney, who finds it difficult to conceal his mysterious past and his growing affection for Sidney's wife.
