This merchandise Monday is dedicated to Dr Hannibal Lecter. Here is my action figure; still in the box:
The Dr Lecter figure comes with the table that was in his cell (with a plate of food); also the police baton that he used to bludgeon the one officer in his cell:
Here is the iconic scene from the movie:
Did you know that the scene where Anthony Hopkins insults Jodie with ‘your cheap shoes…’ etc. Was actually improvised; and so was Jodie’s response. Too cool (two smarties in one room). I was never scared of Dr Lecter; i kind of respected him. Maybe it’s because he’s smart, or maybe i was glad that he didn’t hurt Clarice. When i was 3 or 4 (back in the days of VHS) i’d always stare at the Silence of the Lambs video box at the movie rental place. I don’t know why. Then my dad would usher me off to find Tom & Jerry.
Well it turns out i have a huge crush on Jodie Foster 🙂 anyhow… You should check out some of Dr Lecter’s quotes; they are pretty insightful; and applicable to life in general. Silence of the Lambs won best picture in the year i was born. Which film won best pic in your birth year?
