* Tuckerization: It doesn't seem like a coincidence that Cora and Emma both have the last name Duvall, since you can easily picture Shelley Duvall playing either role if Robert Altman had made this film back in TheSeventies.

* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: Camille swallowed Cookie's suicide note, which was the one piece of evidence that could have exonerated her. Also, her browbeating turned Cora into such a good actress that everyone believes her instead of Camille.]]

A Creator/RobertAltman film, ''Cookie's Fortune'' takes place in the small town of [[SweetHomeAlabama Holly Springs, Mississippi]]. It's a simple, quiet place with [[GoodOlBoy peaceful, kind residents]]. On the eve of Easter Sunday, pushy community theater director Camille Dixon and her shy sister Cora are shocked to find that their Aunt [[CoolOldLady Jewel Mae "Cookie" Orcutt]] committed suicide. Terrified how this will reflect on the family name, Camille destroys Cookie's suicide note and convinces Cora to help her make it look like a robbery. Once the police are on the scene, their only suspect is Willis Richland, a well-liked local man who also happened to be Cookie's best friend. Everyone is convinced of Willis's innocence, including Cora's estranged daughter Emma who recently returned to town. A visiting investigator takes over the case and is determined to dig up some of the town's best-kept secrets. As Easter Sunday arrives and Camille's play opens, the truth comes out in ways that no one could have ever imagined.
