comment How did the FBI get Jordan's note to Donnie?
I agree with this, and I wonder if there was any real-life counterpart to this betrayal.

comment Who commits the murders in The Ninth Gate?
The book has a second plot involving the verification of the authenticity of a chapter of the manuscript of the Three Musketeers (hence the novel's name "The Club Dumas"), but the crimes in the parts of the novel that were used for the film were committed by (or at the behest of) Balkan.

I am so embarrassed that I missed this.

comment What did Hannibal try once?
It seemed obvious to me that he was talking about going to a public refuge.

Well, there goes my theory that it was Star Wars.

comment Numbers on the wall in Cuba in “Guys and Dolls” film
They might also be intended to suggest a numbers den (or "bolito," as it would have been called in Havana).

comment What is the symbolism of the remote controlled toy car?
This would make it foreshadowing rather than symbolism, but I agree that, if there is any relevance to the toy car, this is probably it.

comment How does the museum get cleaned?
The question is about the period before Cecil, Gus, and Reginald get busted. Sometimes, the museum seems to be perfect by opening, and sometimes it isn't.

comment Was Jack Regan corrupt in The Sweeney?
Just to be clear — he stole the silver and sold it for personal gain? I thought it might be possible that he was trading it for information on criminals or something.

comment Why did Yashida fake his own death?
You say it's only speculation, but it's pretty convincing to me. This idea fits nicely with two other lines in the film. First, we know that Yashida was obsessed with Wolverine generally, not merely for his healing factor, and getting himself bolstered by adamantium might have been part of his plan all along. Secondly, Viper suggested to Mariko that she had been selected as heir because she was "weak," and perhaps this was because Yashida planned to continue running the company somehow after his "death."

comment What is this bullet-dodging martial arts movie?
I upvoted both of you because this Q/A reminded me of the Tommy Shaw's theme song for that movie.

comment Where did the jewelry go?
Frank has shown profound memory loss and confusion through the entire film, including just before the passing of the note when he asked his son how he was liking Princeton, a college from which the son had graduated fifteen years earlier. Why should we believe he has the location of the jewels right? The way I read the son's response is "the old man's got another pointless guess about what happened to the loot."

comment Why did Atom indicate that he could understand Max at the beginning of Real Steel?
I suppose DavRob60 deserves some of the points, but you found it, so I'm giving them to you. Thanks.

comment Why did Atom indicate that he could understand Max at the beginning of Real Steel?
Yup. The film-makers hint at the robot's sentience several times. Perhaps it was something like Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang (in the book, not the movie), where the lavish attention paid by a new owner somehow embued him wih life.

No, the name was written on the sword.

comment How did Sherlock survive the fall?
I am glad to see this series get some traction here. Wasn't there an odd scene at the start of the episode in which Watson gets a letter full of unidentified powder? I assumed it would be a clue to something but I think it was never referred to again.

comment “She did her best to convince me that she was still in love with me”
You seem to presume that Ilsa loved Rick and that Rick knew it. Perhaps she had grown past her pre-war infatuation with Rick, and he knew it, and he was telling the truth to Laszlo in Casablanca.

comment Which audience was targeted by “Scarecrow and Mrs. King”?
Recall that at the time the series was aired, most American families had access to new programming on only thee networks; with few exceptions, programs tended to pursue broad audiences.

comment What year was The Warriors (1979) first shown on TV or cable?
I am pretty sure it showed on the Z channel before 1983, but only on the basis of personal recollection.
