Cliff Booth is referred to as a war veteran, a subtle nod to his inglorious basterd days. This would seem to be an inconsistentcy, that is, Brad Pitt was Aldo Raine in WW2 but is now Cliff Booth. It is not. This is because both Inglorious Basterds and Once Upon a Time in Holywood are revisionist history films. Plus, there was a deleted scene, which was never shot, that connected the two seemingly disparate characters. In it, Aldo “Brad Pitt” Booth cuts a swastika into Charles Manson’s forehead saying, “No, THIS is my masterpiece.”
