Suicide Kings

Question: Much ado is made near the start of the film about the kidnappers sending Elise's finger back to her family as a threat, but we learn later that she was never harmed. Did the film ever explain where the finger actually came from, or if it was even sent at all?

Answer: The finger is never shown, only mentioned. Since Elise looked to have all her fingers one must assume it was made up as part of the scheme to fool everyone.

Question: According to the credits, Suicide Kings is based on a short story by Don Stanford called "The Hostage". Where was this story published, and is it possible to read it?

Answer: I found a google hit showing it was released as a short story for Cosmopolitan in Aug 1953.

Question: I cannot find the soundtrack listing and artist's names. What are the titles and artists of the songs? Thank you.

Question: When the kidnapper threatens to shoot Brad Garrett if he doesn't change the channel back, he then pulls the trigger but the gun doesn't go off. But when the gun is checked and empties, there are 6 bullets in the gun. Why did it not go off?

Answer: There were 5 live rounds ("bullets") and 1 empty shell. So the cylinder was positioned to shoot the spent round when the trigger was pulled.

Revealing mistake: During the flashback scene where Max is describing the night of the kidnapping, the rainfall at the marina is obviously fake. The "rain" is being blown at an odd angle from an off-camera fan, and the surface of the water is practically still with no raindrops. (00:40:50)
