comment Western where hero ties up dead\unconscious fat man
That is not much to go on. About what year do you think it was made? What country? Descriptions of characters? Any other details?

comment Why is the ghost on the uniform patch making a peace sign?
Could be V for victory rather than being a peace symbol.

Ditto. I searched extensively as well.

comment Why was Edward given scissors instead of hands?
The OP asks why the inventor did not use prosthetic hands from the beginning. The answer, I think, is because the movie starts from Burton's vision. The hands are the whole premise for the movie... But I am cool with you not liking my answer!

comment Are Greg House's Life Lessons Accurate?
I would call them observations more than lessons, and they are "cup half empty" kinds of observations. Yes, everyone lies at some time or other, but most people tell the truth most of the time, most people value honesty, and many lies are told for fair reasons. House has a negative, myopic view of the world through which he sees his truths.

comment Significance of number 1239 in The Santa Clause
I looked for connections between the writers (Leo Benvenuti and Steve Rudnik) and the Simpsons, but so far have turned up nothing... Was hoping that by posting this much, someone else might be able to help establish such a connection. Until then, it's entertaining speculation!

Jerry Lewis has also fared well in other countries in his day.

comment On the elements of a internationally successful comedy movie
Love Mr. Bean. Would be interesting to find a list of international box office takings. 82% of the takings from Bean were in countries other than the US!

comment Which episode marks the first appearance of Walt's hat in Breaking Bad?
I read that his putting on the hat in season 3 marks the emergence of Heisenberg, so it's a first in that respect.

comment What happened to the production between seasons 5 and 6 of the 2003 TMNT series?
The point of this answer is that the marked change came because the series was shown out of order, so the continuity was affected. The OP indicated reading Wikipedia, but there are MANY articles on Wikipedia, and it is possible he/she missed this particular article. I spent hours searching for other sources, but found none. The quote is accurate as the Wikipedia page stood at the time of posting, but it has been edited multiple times since.

comment Is the “fear of death” the most powerful impulse of the spirit for Batman?
I don't understand why we are so quick to close down a question. Why can't a question stay open long enough to see if there is a valid answer? Give it 48 hours? I have spent much of my morning reading excerpts from books about philosophy as it relates to Batman and superheroes - not an exhaustive search but enough to post a reasonable answer. The superhero is archetypal. This is an INTERESTING question. This is not the first time I have researched something only to come back and find the question closed. I am so annoyed, I feel like crying. I think I am giving up. I am sure the OP is too.

comment Was that Julie Newmar on Thriller's S01E28?
It actually took following a chain of sites, as the actress in question is not listed as a victim and none of the actresses has a photo in imdb.

comment What poster is this?
That was a fun challenge...Found the scene, then looked for album covers that came out in 2000 (since the film came out in 2001)...

comment Was Hitchcock fascinated by the nascent field of brain science while filming “The Lady Vanishes”?
I really enjoyed the film and the research. The book is free at the link - I've downloaded the pdf and have read quite a bit of it.

I just saw this episode again, and I think you are right!

comment Was Hitchcock fascinated by the nascent field of brain science while filming “The Lady Vanishes”?
I have found indications (though not directly related to this film) that Hitchcock was interested in hypnosis/hypnotherapy which was developmentally young in the 30s, but he struggled with how to show a hypnotic state on film. So far no evidence of an interest in brain surgery. Haven't given up though - love a challenge!
