Cast (in credits order)[edit]


  • In the Coen brothers' film Barton Fink (1991), the title character deals with writers' block while attempting to write a screenplay for a Wallace Beery wrestling picture. At the time they wrote it, the Coens were reportedly unaware of this movie. Barton Fink features a character based somewhat on William Faulkner that Fink consults for help in writing the script.[1]
