Question: I understand the 2 men staring into the window in the beginning were not the same as the Arab men on the plane, but they were actual spies working for the hijacker right? I still think that was very suspicious and not a coincidence that people were spying on them the day before the incident.
Question: A "modified" racing stock car, white with the number 1 on it, appears in the scene when Frank Lucas is calling home to North Carolina for his brothers to join him up north. One brother answers the phone on the garage wall and when he heads toward the house the camera scans the yard following him and there is a white stock car parked in the yard, does anybody know the significance to the movie? Can you tell if it is a red, white and blue number 1 on the side? Charlie Jarzombek's car?
Question: Why do we see belisha beacons (striped black and white poles topped with orange light to show pedestrian crossings in UK) during the car chase? Are they seen on USA streets?
Question: Why did Professor Quirrell really have the garlic in his classroom? I know that some people thought he was afraid of a vampire who wanted revenge. Since he was serving Voldemort, however, it seems that a vampire would not be a serious concern for him.
Question: Minutes after Elsa freezes, Olaf flurries away, and turns into a pile of ordinary snow. Why? Is it because he can't exist without Elsa?
Question: How was Serone able to get Gary to his side so quickly?
Question: Nick was supposed to be watching Fanny sing at Keany's, but I just don't see him in the audience shots. Error?
Question: Something I'm confused about... every home-video and streaming version of the movie available is in full-frame. But I've read it was released in theaters in some countries. So was the movie initially released in widescreen? It seems odd that the DVD editions are only in full-frame, especially as at the time they were released, widescreen was pretty much taking over as widescreen TV's were becoming more popular and full-frame was being phased out.
