Visible crew/equipment: In the first scene of the Christmas party when Takagi steps out of one the offices and greets a couple of his guests, the camera pans left to show the orchestra and other guests. A huge shadow of the camera and its operator is being shown on the back wall, then the stage light gets moved to light a different area and the shadow is gone. (00:02:20)
9.7/10.One of the best action movies of the 80's.The movie that launched Bruce Willis.He plays Det John McClane well, as if he'd been ready to play him for some time.The setting in a several story office building works well as they took advantage of this and did great.Hans Gruber is among of the best movie villains of the 80's.This is definitely one meant to be watched at Christmas if you're not into sentimental stuff, I;m not for the most part.
Question: Can someone please explain the scene where McClane and Hans are alone near the roof. Hans says his name is "Bill Clay" and the camera zooms in on a board with the name Clay on it. What is the significance of this? Does this give Hans away? And if so how?
