Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: Can anyone explain why, in the books, the chief of police is named Fenris Ulf, but in the movie (along with the 1988 BBC version) his name is Maugrim? Scarier sounding?
Question: In a trailer for this movie that was shown in theaters we see Jack and film crew shooting a scene on the shore of the island when Jack tells Ann to scream and while she does, we hear Kong's roar. However, in the movie that scene is missing. We get to see Ann screaming while Kong roars when the film crew encounters the natives for the first time and one member gets shot by an arrow. What's the deal with that? That cannot be the deleted scene as if it was like in the trailer, the movie would have a totally different plot?
Question: Were the airport scenes shot on location at Bangor and LAX airports? If so, I'm curious as to find out how they achieved the effect of no-one being there. I mean, is it possible to desert a whole airport for filming? I would have thought that to be rather impossible, to close the airport whilst shooting. Any help?Hamster
Question: What does the "pop, six, squish, sisarow, lipshits." or whatever it was? I didn't catch it too good, but what did it mean? It was in the "He had it comin'" song. (I know the pop refered to the gum, six was about his six wives and Lipshits was the name of the boyfriend.) What were the other two?Hamster
Question: What is the name of the actor who plays Notre Dame player 75, last name Mateus? I can't find him in the credits. He's the guy who starts chanting "Rudy" during the Georgia Tech game. I know Al Snow aka Allen Sarven plays an uncredited Notre Dame player in the movie, but it is not him - I have seen pics of Al Snow, and he is NOT the guy. There is more than one uncredited Notre Dame player in the film. (I have posted this question before, and the reply was Al Snow, so please don't answer this unless you actually know who the actor is. Thank you.)
