Rufus Thomas in Mystery Train

Mystery Train

1989 NR

In the three intertwining stories that comprise this comic anthology from director Jim Jarmusch, a pair of Elvis-obsessed Japanese lovers (Youki Kudoh and Masatoshi Nagase), a drunken would-be robber (Joe Strummer) and his pals, and an Italian widow (Nicoletta Braschi) all converge at a seedy hotel in Memphis, Tenn. As they all try to make it through the night, one woman believes that the spirit of Elvis Presley himself might be present.
