Goodfellas – Tommy’s Mother’s House
In Titanic, there is a scene showing a boy playing with a spinning top on deck. This is actually a recreation of a real photo taken onboard the ship on April 11th, 1912 by Francis Browne. It shows 1st Class passenger Frederic Spedden and his 6 year old son Douglas. Both survived the sinking.
How did the camera survive?
Titanic had two stops on her voyage, one in Cherbourg, France and the other in Queenstown (now called Cobh), Ireland. Francis Browne, the photographer, left the ship in Queenstown and didn’t continue the voyage to New York.
How did Michael rationalize the decision to kill Fredo?
Michael rationalizes the decision. His reasons:
- Fredo was involved in a plot to kill him. The recklessness of Fredo’s choice put Michael’s wife and children at risk. Kay and the children were the only people Michael could never harm. Tom Hagen tells this to Kay in the novel.
- Fredo claimed he didn’t know it was a hit. That meant that Fredo was too stupid to see that Johnny Ola would never have approached him if it were anything less than a hit. Johnny promised Fredo that he would have power. Such a thing could only happen if Michael were eliminated as Michael deliberately avoided giving Fredo any power. So Fredo truly didn’t understand the enemies of the Corleone Family or he was tacitly allied with them because Fredo was only thinking of himself and getting passed over by the Don. He wasn’t putting the needs of the family first, but his bruised ego and sense of injustice.
“Why Did Nasa Train Oil Drillers How To Be Astronauts When They Could’ve Just Trained Astronauts To Drill Oil In Armageddon (1998)?”
“Except that NASA and other space agencies do this all the time; they’re called mission specialists and they have specialized training in some field the flight crew doesn’t. They don’t get taught how to fly the ship, just how not to die in space.
Also, for the record, drilling for oil — or any kind of deep core geological work — is extremely specialized, and most of the people in the positions the team of drillers in Armageddon were in have a lot of letters behind their names.”
In “The Return Of The King”, During The Epic Scene Of The Rohirrim Charge Peter Jackson Requested That Only Extras Who Have Read The Novel And Could Recite The Scene, To Be Placed In The Front Lines As They Are Aware Of The Importance Of This Moment. It’s How He Ended Up With This Epic Rider
