Re: Movie Trivia

Most of Loki's answers are correct, but not 19. The movie I'm thinking of seemed at least in part geared to the S&M crowd in terms of the zombie's look as the movie progressed.

Re: Movie Trivia

1-3 5-7 are correct. For 6 I was looking specifically for Dr Noah, as that's his villainous alias.
8 is the right stunt but wrong movie
14. Mostly correct, plus his first bit of advice was to never let them see you bleed. It was mainly the second bit of advice i was looking for so I don't mind throwing that part in.
15 is incorrect
16 is mostly correct. Caroline "Tula" Cossey. Tabloids at the time called her a For Your Eyes Only star (because "For Your Eyes Only background actor" would have made for a weak headline), so subsequently in my university dorm in the 1990s, I was unable to convince a woman in the dorm that Carole Bouquet was not transgender
The rest are correct. While Blofeld is not fully seen until You Only Live Twice, a partly seen man petting a white cat on his lap is seen petting a white cat in From Russia with Love. SPECTRE was created so the movie could play in what was then the USSR. I think a terrorist organization not connected to a particular country actual works better. More larger than life. And without SPECTRE, Marvel might not have come up with Hydra.
