Pomona

Postby Teopeaks » Sat Aug 11, 2007 3:42 pm

I've a question. In the film Sunset Boulevard, when Norma Desmond describes the plot of her script to the young scriptwriter (whose name I forgot), he more or less mocks her and says, "They'll love it in Pomona. They'll love it every place."

And then, I was thinking about this conversation at the end of INLAND EMPIRE about Pomona, where the blond one-legged girl lives.

Is there anything special about Pomona, like a common joke or anything else?

Thanks in advance ;)

Well, in jest they decided that 47 was the random number of the universe in Pomona. See

Also Pomona is the goddess of fruit trees. Lynch might be making a sly reference to the tree of knowledge and the fall. 8)
