Raising Arizona Easter Egg - Nod to Kubric
In the scene where the biker, played by Randall Cobb, bursts into a gas station restroom on his Hog, the camera focuses briefly on the inside of the door just before the biker knocks it down. There is some graffiti on the door - the letters OPE and POE.
This seems a reference to Kubric's "Dr. Strangelove," in which Gen. Ripper wouldn't reveal the recall code for the bombers. He had scribbled on a tablet: "purity of essence, piece on earth," as well as anagrams of POE, OPE.
Hence, the Coen brothers' nod to Kubric and/or his film.
