Manhunter

Question: How did Graham know that Dollarhyde was the man committing murders, and that he drove a van just because the home videos were processed at the lab where the latter worked?

Chinmay Hota

Chosen answer: He's figured out earlier that the Tooth Fairy had a van. Graham noticed that at one of the houses, the Tooth Fairy knew everything he had to do and bring with him and at the other house, he didn't know about the new lock on the door because the Tooth Fairy had gotten his information from the same home movies that Graham had been watching. Once the films had been traced to the lab where Dolarhyde worked, it was easy to link them back to him as the only person who'd had access to both and also drove a van.

Question: When Jack Crawford is explaining to his team about the Tooth Fairy's note to Lecktor, there is, very prominently in the foreground, what looks like a paperweight on his desk. What exactly is it, and why is it so important as to be in the foreground? (00:43:20)

Chosen answer: It's the plaster cast of the Tooth Fairy's teeth made from the bite impressions he left on past victims.

Question: When the film was first broadcast on TV, why was the title changed to "Red Dragon: The Pursuit of Hannibal Lecter"?

Chosen answer: It was done to capitalize on the success of "The Silence of the Lambs," which made Hannibal Lecter a household name.

Question: When talking to Freddy Lounds, why does Francis Dolarhyde wear the stocking over his face?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: He wears the stocking over his face for two reasons: (a) to protect his identity (to make Lounds think he'll survive) and (b) remember that Francis believes he is an "ugly monster" so he is also wearing the stocking to defer judgement away from him.

Trivia

In the final confrontation between Dollarhyde and Graham, Tom Noonan had to lie in a pool of stage blood for several hours as the crew worked on other shots. After all this time, the stage blood dried into a thick, cement-like adhesive that all but fused Noonan to the carpet.
