General questions

I only remember bits of the trailer for this 60's (??) British film. It's possibly an espionage or spy spoof that starts by showing a man running down a street wearing a black and white graduation cap and gown. A voice-over says (sic) "See this man? Very good. Carry on." He then is in a classroom with a bunch of beautiful college-aged schoolgirls/students. He asks a question to the class and then, after they answer, he exclaims, "Right, my children!" He then asks one beauty a personal question to which she replies (in letters) the man's name, which spells out on the screen and is (I think) also the name of the film. Any help here?

General questions

A Hollywood movie musical from the 40's or 50's that features a bizarre choreographed dance in it, where a whole bunch of people in a park get up and start dancing and yelling, "Weeeeee!" They're dancing this wild and weird dance. Anybody know this movie?

CCARNI Premium member

Answer: Few more details needed I think as there were many musicals at this time with various dances and pretty much guaranteed somebody in these films goes "weeeee" when dancing. Any actors or actresses you recall? Black and white film or colour film? Genre? (was it a Western?) Any recollection of the dance or its style?

Looking for a made-for-TV Western movie (1980's-ish), light drama with a young Sheriff or lawman called (I think) "Longarm" or they called him that. (*No, this is NOT the name of the movie...I checked that already). He's traveling on the road with a young woman his age and a precocious 10-year-old girl who's always mouthing off to him. They're on the road together and he needs to get to a certain town so he can get something done there. Don't remember any of the actors' names.

Grudge Match (2013)

Question: Right before the climatic fight, "Razor" gives a nod to Sally in the audience, then sees another guy in the audience who just smirks and flips him off. Razor just nods and smirks back at him. Who was that guy that flipped him off and why?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: He is the MMA fighter that Razor punched earlier in the film during one of the fight promotions.

General questions

I saw a short animated film back in the 80's shown at an animation film festival. About 2-3 minutes long. Basically simple pen & ink with almost no color. A drawing of a muscular man, chained to a concrete slab, who is dragging it through a desert for some unknown reason (to reach a destination to be freed of it?) and all the while he is tormented by a creature (ghost? goblin? spirit?) riding on that slab who tries to give him words of encouragement, but is way too happy to do the man any good. The end of the film shows that the man dragging the slab is, in fact, going around in a perpetual figure-8. Any idea what this short animated film is called and where I can see it again? YouTube?

Chosen answer: The short film you described, was featured in MTV's animated short television show "Liquid Television" from the 90's. there was no title given for the short.

Saw this movie trailer about a year ago (2011): Foreign film about a man in prison (circa WWI or WW2?) who pays another prisoner so he may go free and assumes that other man's identity. The freed man then travels to the other mans estate where he assumes the other mans identity & position in the family. Some suspect; others don't. Possible British cast. What is the title of this movie? It was released in 2009-2011?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: The movie you refer to I believe is "The Tenth Man" with Anthony Hopkins, was a TV movie from 1988. IMDB link here. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096243/.

Question: Does anyone know if the Jaguar hearse car still exists or who the manufacturer was?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: The hearse seen was custom built for the film, and was destroyed as seen in the film. other Jaguar hearses have been built, but they all have been custom built.

Trivia: In the opening scene when Charlotte and Tiana are children, the camera scans Charlotte's bedroom. The tea set on the floor has 'Mrs. Potts & Chip' from "Beauty & the Beast" sitting on a tray. (00:01:25)

Trivia: On the street scene (where the giant elemental attacks), the nearby movie marquee reads "See You Next .nday". This is a homage is director John Landis who, as an inside joke, always puts the moniker "See You Next Wednesday" in all of his movies.

Question: All through the movie where the subtitles appear, the translation changes from scene to scene. In the movie "Oui" is sometimes translated as "Yes"; sometimes as "Oui". Same thing goes for other French words that switch translation with either the same French word or English. What's up with that?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: This is done as an inside joke. Oui is well known as yes, so no need for translation.

Capricorn One (1977)

Question: Okay, so the three astronauts are on the run but only James Brolin makes good his escape. What happened to the other two? They're shown as being caught, but what happened after? Anybody know?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: It's never stated in the film, however, as the astronauts have been declared officially dead and therefore cannot ever be allowed to contact anybody, they were most likely executed as soon as they were captured.

Answer: How were they able to fire their flares, then?

Dave Messer

They both had just enough time to fire their flares when they realised they were about to be captured and that there was no chance of escaping.

Character mistake: When the mayor invites the new sheriff into his house, he calls out for his daughter, Prudy. But calls out "Trudy" several times instead. Later in the film he corrects himself.

CCARNI Premium member

Character mistake: Both in the movie (and stage) versions, Mushnik makes a verbal mistake. Seymour shows Mushnik his new plant (Audrey II) for the very first time, but seconds later when the plant suddenly droops, Mushnik asks Seymour, "Why is it always wilting like that?" Always? He's just seen the plant! The line should be, "Why is it wilting like that?" Some smart stage directors of the play version have wised up and changed the line.

Question: When the Princess Nuala asks Abe what he's wearing early in the film, Abe answers "It's a breathing apparatus". But he only dons the mechanism twice in the film, and rarely wears it outside where the microbes in the air can kill him! Why even wear it?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: Why not wear it? It's clearly something that's useful to him, even if it's apparently not particularly essential. It may simply just make him more comfortable, like a human wearing a scarf in cold weather - allowing him to breathe the water that he prefers rather than air. There's never any mention that Abe can only survive for a limited time out of the water; equally, there's no suggestion that he's particularly vulnerable to atmospheric microbes. It's part of his equipment that he uses when he wishes to, that's all.

Question: Doc Brown shows up at the end of part three with his wife Clara, his two boys, and a time-traveling, hovercraft-converted train. How did he build it? There was nothing in 1885 that could even begin to help him build another time-machine! And don't tell me that he used Marty's 'hoverboard' as parts, because that doesn't wash.

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: Time machines don't actually exist, so who are we to say whether or not the parts to build another time machine are available? Doc Brown is an inventor. Doc had the knowledge of how to build a time machine having built the original machine into a DeLorean, Doc also appears to have had a few years to come up with a way of building a time machine into a train, given that he now has children who appear to be around 5 years old. Plus, remember that the fridge in Doc's shop was much bigger than a modern fridge, and a steam train is way bigger than a DeLorean.

Iron Man (2008)

Trivia: When Pepper Potts is stealing Obediah's files off of Tony Starks computer in his office, pay close attention to some of the names of the files. On several files that show on the computer screen, a few are labeled "Lebowski". A playful homage to Jeff Bridges (who plays Obediah) and his famous slacker character from the movie of the same name.

General questions

A theatrical release in the 70's that was a compilation of different movies showing clips from them, horror, mostly. They were all narrated by different actors at different times in the movie. I remember Donald Pleasance in one section and then Cheech and Chong sitting in a theater with a trash can filled with popcorn. Chong waves off a woman who wants to sit in front of them by telling her that the seat is wet, but Cheech yells at him for that. What is the name of this movie? Anyone?

CCARNI Premium member

Chosen answer: It sounds like "It Came From Hollywood", 1982.http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0084156/.
