Question: Why is Betty Boop a black & white "Toon"? She makes the remark to Eddie that things have been tough since everything went to colour, but it was the development of coloured film that was different. Wouldn't "Toons" always have been coloured, but only filmed with the black & white film of the day? So shouldn't Betty Boop have also been a coloured "Toon", just like Mickey Mouse, who was also a black & white cartoon when he first appeared on film in "Steamboat Willy" in 1928, but is seen as a coloured "Toon" at the end of the film. Also if black & white "Toons" can become colourized, then why didn't Betty have this process done?
Question: Carlton and Will are in the holding cell at the police station, singing a song about Moses letting his people go, when all of a sudden their burly cellmate starts singing the rest of the song in a very operatic manner. There is only one lyric I could pick up: "Tell the Pharaoh/Let my people GO.", but unfortunately the rest of the lyrics (or its title) are nowhere to be found on the Internet. What is the name of this song, and where could I possibly find the words to it?
Question: Why does Sue tell Reed that there "never was" a "her and Vince"? Weren't they together for two years?
Question: At the start of the film, where the stage light falls from the 'sky', it says Sirius on it. Are we meant to presume that this stage light lit up the place in the sky where the star Sirius would be in real life?
