The Movie That Changed The Town:
Fried Green Tomatoes is a 1991 drama film based on the novel Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. The film was directed by Jon Avnet and written by Fannie Flagg and Carol Sobieski. It stars Kathy Bates, Jessica Tandy, Mary-Louise Parker and Mary Stuart Masterson.

When you see folks go from the cafe to the tracks to the Threadgoode house; it takes seconds to do it in the movie, but the cafe and house are actually 60 miles apart.

Director Jon Avnet referred to Mary-Louise Parker as "Lou" and Mary Stuart Masterson as "Stu" on the set because their names are so similar and he had to say them so often.  He also called Chris O'Donnell "COD".

Author Fannie Flagg is the woman telling the classroom of disaffected women, "You can get that spark back into your marriage!"

Mary Stuart Masterson did all of the bee stunts herself because her stunt double quit at the last minute.
