H.I. McDunnough played by Nicholas Cage, from the very popular Coen Brothers 1987 cult classic "Raising Arizona". After painting "The Dude" from "The Big Lebowski" I started thinking about other iconic movies, more specifically Coen Brothers movies and the first one that popped into my head was Raising Arizona. I choose this scene of H.I. because of the humor surrounding a habitual criminal who continues to get arrested which brings about a love affair with the officer that takes the mug shots played by Holly Hunter. Well you know the rest...
