Malcolm X

Audio problem: In the scene where Malcolm is playing Russian Roulette, watch closely around the part when Malcolm begins to stand over the other guy with the gun pointed at his nose. You can hear Malcolm talking, but his lips aren't moving.

Factual error: When Malcolm is talking on the telephone in an extreme close up, you can see the connector on the phone is one of the modern snap-in modular jacks. Telephones in the 1960's did not have those.

Factual error: Malcom X yells for 911 in the movie, however at this time 911 didn't exist as an emergency number. The first ever 911 call was placed in 1968.


Malcolm X: We didn't land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on us.

Malcolm X: I ordered a single, Jack.
Bartender: The double's on that man, Jack.
Malcolm X: Who is that?
Bartender: That's West Indian Archie.
Malcolm X: Yeah? What's his angle?
Bartender: Some uh this, some uh that.

Malcolm X: The only thing I like integrated is my coffee.


Question: How did Malcolm, Shorty, Sophia, and Peg get caught for their crimes? Also, was the water turned off because of the police arresting Malcolm and Shorty? And where's Rudy? I didn't see him arrested.

Chosen answer: It was Rudy who called the police. He was double crossing his partners and making off with the loot from their crime spree.
