Romeo + Juliet

Question: I first saw this film on TV in Britain a few years ago and the song "Exit Music for a Film" by Radiohead played over the end credits. Everytime I have viewed it on television since then, another song from the soundtrack is played at the same point in the movie. Could the change possibly be because its become an expensive song to use as they have become a more high-profile group?

Answer: Whatever songs are in the movie were licensed for distribution by the film production company for a fixed price. It is impossible for there to be later fees somehow incurred on the production company just because the group is more popular. However, it's conceivable that Radiohead only allowed their song for use in cinemas but not television.

Question: In the trivia for Moulin Rouge, it says that Baz Luhrmann included the red "L'amour" sign in this film, as well as Moulin Rouge and Strictly Ballroom. Where is it in this film? Is it the image on the drugs that Romeo and his friends take at the party, or is this a different picture? If this image is not the L'amour sign, where can it be seen?

Answer: It appears on one of the billboards on Verona Beach. It's red and white, and in the style of the Coca-Cola logo.
