    OK, in the movie Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mina is out on the streets of London, and walks past an advertisement for the Lyceum Theatre and the actor Henry Irving. Why is this significant?

    Yeah, I can hear Forrest in my head saying 'I must've had me about 15 Dr. Peppers' - or something like that.

    I've never even heard of Grape NeHi ~ maybe it's an American-only drink?

    Ok, I'm late, but bravo to those who said Dr. Pepper. :D

    And to address the grape Nehi situation--obviously no MASH fans here? It was Radar's favorite.


    I'm sorry I can't answer the Bram Stoker question--never seen it.

    Well actually, you don't need to have seen it. And I suppose I kind of cheated since simply watching the movie won't help you, you have to know a bit of the background about the story and its author.

    CHEATER! CHEATER!



    Only kidding. But I think you need to see it. If it's something on a poster or something--I wouldn't know.

    I've never seen that version, but others. :D

    MoonOwl I think we give.

    I had to dig this up because it was forgotten and buried. So I'm going to stick it and suggest we make this Movie and Television Trivia

    "The Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone, is a relatively new concept which was made popular during the 20th century. Hekate is today most often equated to the Crone aspect of this triplicate archetypal image, but this idea of Hekate as Crone Goddess is one which would have been completely alien to the people of ancient Greece. The only possible explanation for the continued association today is that somehow the darker, scarier aspects of Hekate has been equated to wisdom in old age, which is, when you think about it rather ludicrous." -- Sorita D'Este.

    All right, since no one's going to bite (*snicker*), I'll give it up:

    The showing of the Lyceum Theatre and the actor Henry Irving was a little nod to Bram Stoker and his novel. Stoker managed the Lyceum, and Irving was an actor at the theatre and is rumored to be one of the primary inspirations for the character of Count Dracula.

    How about this one:

    In Tim Burton's film Sleepy Hollow, who played the Headless Horseman?

    Christopher Walken played his head but that wasn't Christopher Walken's body

    I'll take Christopher Walken, since he's the one I was thinking of.

    Smartypants!

    :D

    Who can tell my what caused the rewrite in Raiders of the Lost Ark that caused the long fight scene between Indiana and the man with the sword to be changed to what we saw in the theaters of Indy simply shooting him after he waves his sword around. It's one of the funniest scenes in the movie and it was an improv. Why did he change it?
