- Bardi, Joe (August 19, 2009). "A "spaghetti war" film classic: Sarasota's Peter Hooten on his role in the original Inglorious Bastards". Creative Loafing.
I felt really good and I worked a long time on it," Hooten says, lingering over a double espresso and chocolate cake in the dining room at the Sarasota Ritz-Carlton. And I got really good people together. And we shot it in Cambridge; it was the right atmosphere. … It's not mainstream, but God, it was a labor of love. So who's going to see that? But it will be in the libraries when Inglorious Bastards goes bye-bye. Nobody's going to remember anybody for that.
