This actually happens everytime somebody exits the car in the film (and in quite a few other films from the era too). There are two possible reasons for this: Firstly, Hitchcock did love his filming and it's highly possible he felt having the people exit via the passenger door gave him a better shot. In fact, some basic googling shows a general consensus ...

To summarise from Wikipedia, the story of My Fair Lady is as follows: The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. In other words, taking a common girl and making her into a proper lady. The lines you refer to are the professor ...

You might mean the nanny's suicide in The Omen. She hangs herself from a building after shouting, "[Damien], it's all for you". The remake from 2006 faithfully reenacts the scene with the same dialogue (pic here) so you might mean that. Here is the scene from the original movie [Warning: disturbing]: ...

It wasn't about why they couldn't get a permit, it's that they probably didn't even try because they thought it was stupid or didn't feel it was worth the effort. The event you are speaking of didn't happen when they couldn't get a permit (i.e. it's not like they were trying to get some kind of permit in this scene and the cops refused to grant it, and the ...

I believe he was asking for some confirmation that what he was saying was coming in loud and clear on the other end. He was wearing a wire designed to transmit his conversation to detectives who were listening in, and if the wire disengaged then wearing it was moot.

You've obviously watched the Director's Cut, going by the questions you've asked. There are some differences in the script, including this section. To quote the relevant section from the original script: Lefty: Ain't no comparison. Cadillac got more acceleration, more power, more-- better handling, ...

We don't know. Ultimately though, it's irrelevant. If you look at the script before and after that line: Lefty: ...Whole time Sonny Black's in the can, the whole time... He's got a family, he's got a mistress. He's got a mistress for the mistress. I watched out for them, all of them. Me, I was the only one. Nobody else gave a fuck. He's ...

Sounds like The Court Jester with Danny Kaye from 1955: Set in medieval England, the plot concerns the struggle to restore to the throne the rightful heir, a baby with a distinguishing birthmark, the purple pimpernel on his posterior. Danny Kaye plays Hubert Hawkins, an ex-carnival entertainer who becomes minstrel to the Black Fox, a Robin Hood-type ...

1) The picks he was talking about were bets on dogs, literally. He was betting on dog races. 2) Yes, he's making fun of the shirt being dirty, because it's been worn so often. "Joe Faccia Di Cula" is like "Joey Bag-a-donuts". It's like a reference to a stereotypical Italian.

Earlier, in the kitchen discussing "empathy", Johnny said, "You see, every day when I'm shaving, I look up a new word." This is a reference back to that scene. The joke is that "Have you been shaving again?" was a substitute for "Are you using the word 'aspiration' / having 'aspirations' because you just looked it up in a dictionary?" and the implications ...

From appearances, and the way he constantly fishes pieces out of his mouth and puts them on his plate and picks his teeth, and also according to online sources (like here and here), it's a horrible, cold piece of leftover steak which he was eating before he passed out drunk. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be in the script, where circumstances are a bit ...

Shots like this used to be prohibitively expensive because they required helicopters. Now, amateur filmmakers can use miniature helicopters with HD video cameras mounted on them. The results are pretty great! You would need to make sure that the video quality and color matches the rest of your film, of course, but you can fix a lot of that in post ...

When you send your shirt to be cleaned, you can ask them to starch your collar to keep it from curling. So Bobby is just humorously saying that the cervical collar is the result of the launderers over-starching Karl's shirt collar rather than his injury.

Are you possibly thinking of the Seinfeld episode (s08e03) "The Bizarro Jerry", where Jerry goes out on a date with a beautiful, blonde woman but complains that she has "man hands" -- punctuated by having an actual husky man's hands shown in place of hers. Here is a video of what sounds exactly like the scene you're describing: ...

She's saying something that's very childish, that someone much younger (say five or six years old) might say. She's being told to act her age, i.e. act like a twelve years old, not someone of a much younger age. Note: You've asked a few questions of this type recently. I'd strongly suggest checking out the Stack site for English Language Learners, where ...

When Lefty is in the car, he is indeed afraid of being "whacked". He's checking his mirror to see the back seat of the car, so he can keep an eye on everyone in the car and be ready for anything (in the hope he could do something about it). We can see his fear from the script: SONNY Hey, Left, what'cha doing? LEFTY Just checking my part. SONNY ...

In that scene, they are comparing the Lincoln, Cadillac, and Mercedes automobiles. One guy says "I'll tell you one thing, my friend. Undisputable. The Lincoln is longer." He is talking about the length of the Lincoln Town Car - he is saying it is longer (has more length) than the other cars. When Al Pacino says "It's longer? Longer like what? Longer ...

Does that mean he has a lot of mistresses Yes, I think that is the most likely meaning. He has a wife, and he is cheating on her with a mistress. But perhaps there are times when he gets tired of the mistress, so he cheats on her (the mistress) with yet another mistress. or that one of Sonny Black's mistresses is a lesbian? That is a possible ...
