Awesome: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
  • The KKK rally summoning Triumph of the Will as directed by Busby Berkeley (and a workout for your subwoofer).
  • The performance of "Man of Constant Sorrow" at the Stokes campaign dinner.
    • Pappy O'Daniels also gets one here for turning around his disastrous gubernatorial election in a single night, simply by dancing on stage and winning the crowd over. At his opponent's campaign dinner, no less. He's a mean old man, but he's better than the alternative.
    • He also subtly strong-arms them into accepting his terms, since he just granted them a pardon in exchange for their endorsement - and in full view of the public, no less!
  • The KKK rally sequence ends with a CMoA hat trick - Delmar for stopping the mob by throwing the Confederate flag like a javelin, Big Dan actually catching it milliseconds before it hits him, and the boys dropping the burning cross on him.
