If you haven’t seen the new Tarantino movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood I would recommend it. There are references to Audie Murphy (who gets mentioned by name at one point!) and tv westerns similar to Whispering Smith and war films. It’s fairly obvious that Tarantino is an Audie Murphy fan. Remember the war hero who played himself in a film version of his exploits from Tarantino’s The Inglorious Basterds?
