comment How did Sherlock survive the fall?
@NiceOrc: Barts hospital has no A&E (sources: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Bartholomew's_Hospital / bartsandthelondon.nhs.uk/for-patients-and-visitors/… ), but it's not only labs, and not implausible there was an ambulance crew nearby.

comment What was the first movie to introduce “blue wire or red wire” bomb disposal?
From Juggernaut's subtitles: "On no account cut the red wire before isolating the relay contacts."

Another Time, Another Place (1958) has a bomb disposal scene. But it's a black and white film with no mention of the colours, and the sapper just cuts some insulation then four wires separately.

comment The first human robot?
L'Ève future (1886) may feature an android, but it's a book and not a film. Metropolis (1920) may be the first film android.

comment What factors go into determining what trailers are played before movies?
@saurabhj: I took the photo :) We only popped in to admire the old analogue projector on display in the lobby when the projectionist beckoned to follow him up a narrow spiral staircase and showed us the new digital projector!

"... spoken with no noticeable accent" - no noticeable Russian accent, or American, or what?

comment Why do some directors change pronunciation of character's names?
@SystemDown: Thanks, I rather take your word for it over someone who asked their daughter to ask the language department. I also read elsewhere that the "Ras" pronunciation fits with the "The Demon's Head" meaning, whereas "Raysh" meant something totally inappropriate.

comment Why do some directors change pronunciation of character's names?
@SystemDown: Apparently the Language Dept. of UCLA said 'it was "Raysh" - with a kind of rolling of the "r" sound at the beginning of the word.'
