While not explicitly stated in the films themselves, Tarantino has established family ties between several figures in his filmography. The real name of Mr. Blonde in Reservoir Dogs turned out to be Vic Vega, as Tarantino claimed in an interview that he was the brother of Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction. AT various interviews over the yearsTarantino mentioned the fact that he once had an idea for a Vega Brothers movie that would have the characters of John Travolta and Michael Madsen together (and brought back from the dead), but like many of Tarantino’s ideasthis was never implemented.
“I was thinking about the idea of the Vega brothers taking place before the movies.” – Tarantino said in 2016, one of the few times he ever addressed the subject. “Vincent was in Amsterdam and his brother Vic/Mr Blondin comes to visit him and they get into an adventure.”
Tarantino’s penchant for weaving hidden family histories later continued in his period films. In “Bastards” – British intelligence officer Michael Fassbender. Archie Hickox is linked to the duplicitous Englishman Pete Hickox. (Tim Roth) in The Hateful Eight.
As for the recurring names in Tarantino’s first films, it’s no secret that he wrote his earliest scripts – Natural Born Killers, True Romance, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, etc. They may not be made (or will be). implemented by other directors). So it’s no surprise that Jimmy in Pulp Fiction and Mr. White in Reservoir Dogs share the same last name “Dimmick,” Detective Tom Sizemore of the NBC and Warden Blond in Reservoir Dogs are called Scagnetti, a cop from Reservoir Dogs. dogs.” Dogs and the murdered cop in NBK (and later the killer in Django) share the last name Nash, and Romance’s Alabama Worley shares a name with Mr. White’s referenced old partner in Reservoir Dogs. (and by the way, Pam Grier’s character in One of Tarantino’s favorite films, Caged Women, 1971.). What may have started as an unintended script transcript may well have become Tarantino’s trademark.
