Brick kills a rival reporter by throwing a trident in a scene lifted from the first gladiator fight in Spartacus (1960).

When Ed announces that a woman is coming to work at the station, Brick panics because he has heard that bears are attracted to the smell of their periods. Believe it or not, this is actually true of bears and lions.

In the brawl, the two horsemen with the net between them come after Brian and drag him. This shot (and the accompanying music) comes straight from the Planet of the Apes, the original release.

Joel Amos Gordon
