The Show-Me State is the official nickname of Missouri. There are several stories concerning the origin of the "Show-Me" slogan. The most widely known story gives credit to Missouri's U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver for coining the phrase in 1899. During a speech in Philadelphia, he said: "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. You have got to show me." The phrase is now used to describe the character of Missourians; not gullible, conservative, and unwilling to believe without adequate evidence (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Missouri became the 24th state of the United States of America in 1821.

These movies have a connection with Missouri. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Missouri?

I liked 3 billboards right up to the ending. It was like they had no idea how to finish it off.

I guess that it was up to us to guess: Would they do it or wouldn't they?
