Who's Harry Crumb?

Question: When Harry finds Eliot tied up, he removes the tape and tells him that the kidnappers have been caught. Why did Eliot confess to being the actual mastermind behind the kidnapping? Harry had no idea it was Eliot behind it all so he could have gotten away with it if he didn't say anything.

Answer: Eliot mistakenly believed that Harry had figured out what his part was in the kidnapping, and, exasperated by Harry's dumb luck, Eliot stupidly confessed. He was then arrested.

Answer: It's not a real movie and it's not Kathleen Turner. It was just done for the scene. The two people in the "movie" are Patrick McKenna and Daliah Novak who are credited as "TV Man" and "TV Woman."

Question: Harry Crumb thinks it is the tennis pro that is having sex with Helen Downing in the photos, implying that he never looked at the photos or saw the actual sex taking place. But this is contradicted by the fact that Harry Crumb says the "tennis pro's" male organ was small, proving that he saw the sex taking place. Is the answer that he only saw the man's male organ, but not his face?
