Austin Powers in Goldmember

Question: What film is the footage of the young Michael Caine from? And is the footage of him playing with a small boy in the 'Musical Number' deleted scene from his home videos or a film?

Chosen answer: The footage of Michael Caine is from the 1967 film Hurry Sundown.

Question: At the end of the second film, Felicity went to the future with Austin. When this film starts she's nowhere in site for the whole movie. What ever happened to her?

Chosen answer: An original cut featured the opening scene with Heather Graham in it (I'm not sure what happens) - I'm assuming they dropped that idea when they could get hold of all the cameo stars. Hopefully it'll surface on the DVD.

Question: I don't get this: When Nigel Powers is first taken to the submarine, at one point he looks down, sees Mini Me and says "I thought I smelt cabbage." What's that all about?

Chosen answer: In the first Austin Powers when he is talking about his two fears, one of them was carnies. He then said they have small hands and smell like cabbage. Most likely then Mini-Me reminded him of a carny.

Question: Does anyone know why Mini Me doesn't, can't, or won't speak?

Chosen answer: Mini Me does speak at one point in both films (that I know of). He says "You and I" when Dr Evil and he are singing Just The Two Of Us. Rather than a baby's voice, this is very low-pitched and I think it cuts to Frau looking surprised. There's no real reason for Mini Me not speaking other than it creates excellent gag opportunities such as the "Do You Want To?" scene in the car.

Question: When was there a Mini Shaguar? It could have just not been used in the American version, but I also may have missed it.

Jackie Menechino

Chosen answer: In a trailer shown on the Infinifilm DVD, Verne Troyer stars with lots of little people which looks to parody the trailer from the first film. In the end, he flips into the Mini-Shaguar.

Question: In the scene where Austin and his dad start speaking "english english" in cockney rhyming slang, what are they actually saying when the subtitles say?

Chosen answer: My dad used cockney rhyming slang all the time and as far as I can tell, they are talking utter nonsense at that point. Even some of the earlier stuff that makes sense isn't true rhyming slang.

Answer: Large parts of the subtitles are accurate, though not all 'cockney rhyming slang'. Some parts are just colloquialisms.

Question: Does anybody know any information about the - I think it is a scar - on Dr. Evil's face. How did he get it / what happened? Or is this never explained?

Hamster

Chosen answer: There is never an explanation given for the scar. I assume it is meant to be the same scar as belonged to Blofeld (the head of SPECTRE) from You Only Live Twice, and played by Donald Pleasence. Dr. Evil is essentially a parody of Blofeld.

Question: What does Dr. Evil's son really say instead of "Why don't we just call it Operation Buttcrack"?

Chosen answer: In the uncensored version, he says, "Why don't you just call it Operation Ass Cream, ya ass?"

Question: Bit of a silly question, but what happened to Felicity Shagwell? She appears to have disappeared after the Spy Who Shagged Me, did Austin just forget about her?

Chosen answer: Felicity Shagwell was originally in the beginning of Austin Powers in Goldmember, but her scene was cut from the final film and has not appeared on any DVD releases. Because of that we do not actually know the reason why she decided to leave Austin.

Question: Is the skin-peeling that Goldmember does a reference to something or is it just a running gag?

Chosen answer: It is meant to be just a gross joke.

Question: I don't understand the part where Foxxy is talking to Austin through that guy. How does she do it, or is it just a gag?

Chosen answer: It's a gag. I suppose she 'rehearsed' it with the guy, but when the guy hurts his finger and Foxxy says "Ow!" that is obviously a gag.

In the showdown between Austin and Britney, when the view goes to a close up of her machine-gun breasts, she has significant cleavage but when it zooms out she has no cleavage.

Trivia

The content of the email received by Austin while he is demonstrating the internet is 'A new ATM card will be sent to you by Fed-Ex because your account has ben compromised by an unknown hacker who obtained your PIN Number while you were purchasing an MP3 Player on E-Bay. Sincerely, Your Bank.' This was included because Mike Myers really did have his bank account compromised shortly before filming.
