The film, for which Benton and Newman and Penn were all Oscar-nominated, was shot in and around Dallas, for the most part; Benton, the Texan whose father had attended their funerals, demanded that much, and Penn obliged -- he would later say of that decision, "Hollywood doesn't really exist anymore." For those so interested, I found this website detailing the exact locations Penn used -- from Ponder to Pilot Point, all the way to Venus. I know what I'll be watching tonight.
