'True Romance' (1993)

Just prior to achieving superstar status in 1994 with "Interview With the Vampire" and "Legends of the Fall," Brad Pitt did a cameo in Tony Scott's mega-violent film noir penned by Quentin Tarantino about two lovers (Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette) who flee Detroit with a suitcase full of cocaine and high-tail it to L.A. with the mob and the cops chasing them. Pitt steals the show -- and is a welcome comedic respite from the balance as the pot-head Floyd who tries to give directions to the mob. Grade: Five tokes for Pitt
