'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' is popular director Quentin Tarantino's ninth film

Quentin Tarantino's ninth film 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' draws fans into a story focused on struggling actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and friend and stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), and actress Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie). While 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' tells a fictional story centered on Dalton's career struggles, Tarantino uses the real-life Sharon Tate murders and the Manson family as a backdrop for the film. Tarantino rewrites history so that the Tate murders never happened. Instead, the Manson Family ends up targeting Dalton and Booth.

The film also drops major questions about Cliff Booth that it never answers, and Tarantino's happy ending leaves the audience wondering what happens next? These are 7 of the biggest questions fans have about 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.'

1

Was Rick Dalton fired from 'The Great Escape?'

Rick meets 'Lancer' series lead James Stacy who asks Rick if it's true that he lost the 'The Great Escape,' lead to Steve McQueen. Rick claims to have never had the opportunity to audition. But fans are left wondering what really happened. As the two talk, we are shown clips of 'The Great Escape,' but with Rick as the 'Cooler King.' It's unclear whether these are actual flashbacks or if it's just Rick's dreams of what it would have been like to be the lead instead of the heavy.

Did Cliff Booth really beat Bruce Lee in a friendly bout?

While Rick is busy shooting 'Lancer,' Cliff heads back to Rick's home to fix a broken antennae on the roof. While on the roof, he flashes back to being on the set of 'The Green Hornet,' in 1967. Rick managed to secure some work for Cliff, Cliff ended up getting kicked off the set after getting into a friendly contest with Bruce Lee. Cliff ends up throwing Lee into the side of a car, leaving a sizable dent. Could Cliff really manhandle a fighting legend such as Lee?
