The Incredible “White Boy Day” Drexl Spivey Scene from True Romance

No one knew what was going to happen in 1993 when the directing skills of Tony Scott (Top Gun) and screenwriting skills of Quentin Tarantino would be combined.   Sadly Tony Scott passed away in 2012 so these two legends of film will never collaborate again.  But for a span of 2 hours and 1 minute fans were treated to a total masterpiece of a film in True Romance.   It’ll go down as one of Tarantino’s best screenplays and one of the best films of the 90s.

The cast of this film extends well beyond the boundaries of Fantasia.  When Brad Pitt plays nothing more than a stoner roommate with a total screen time of about 2 minutes you know you’ve got a quality cast on your hands.  Another character who you don’t see much of?  Drexl Spivey.  Spivey is a dirty pimp who Christian Slater wants to have a few words with.  Spivey is played by none other than Gary Oldman and it’s damned near impossible to tell it’s Gary Oldman but the way he looks, talks, does everything.

To this day this scene will go down as one of my favorites.   Oldman in this film is one of my favorite characters ever.  “He must have thought it was White boy day.”
