  3. 3. 1.Id the film• A memorable feature of the film is the tune that is whistled by the POWs—the first strain of the march "Colonel Bogey"— when they enter the camp. The march was originally written in 1914 by Kenneth J. Alford, a pseudonym of British Bandmaster Frederick J. Ricketts. The Colonel Bogey strain was accompanied by a counter-melody using the same chord progressions, then continued with film composer Malcolm Arnolds own composition " ___________ March," played by the off-screen orchestra taking over from the whistlers, though Arnolds march was not heard in completion on the soundtrack.• The two marches have been recorded together by Mitch Miller as "March from ________ - Colonel Bogey". Due to this, the "Colonel Bogey March" is often mis-credited as “_________ March".

In the caption, X says, "I won the _________. What was your crime?"
  6. 6. 2. • Boris Pasternak
  7. 7. 3.• X is an important contribution to international avant-garde developments in the Sixties that extended the definition of art. Similar to the contemporaneous Nouveau Réalisme, Fluxus or American Literalist Art, artists regarded the pictorial surface as no longer suitable because, in the final analysis, the medium is always illusionistic and, led by their feelings, they turned to working directly with real bodies, objects and substances.• In their efforts to overcome the illusionism of the easel picture, Günter Brus, Otto Mühl, Hermann Nitsch and Rudolf Schwarzkogler arrived at performative works intended to enable a perception of reality as unadulterated as possible. With their painting and material actions, body analysis and manifestoes they opposed the state and the prevailing social order.
  8. 8. 3.• Viennese Actionism
  9. 9. 4.• Scarface
  10. 10. 5.• X was a topographic or occupational name for someone who owned or lived by an orchard, or was employed in one. The name was originally from the German word for orchard. There are several villages named with this word, and so in some cases the surname may have originated as a habitation name from one of these. The first hereditary surnames on German soil are found in the second half of the 12th century, slightly later than in England and France. However, it was not until the 16th century that they became stabilized. The practice of adopting hereditary surnames began in the southern areas of Germany, and gradually spread northwards during the Middle Ages. This name has numerous variant spellings.
  11. 11. 5. Bogart
  12. 12. 6.• X would recount this incident for decades afterward. It happened, he said, when he was about five years old. To punish him for some minor misdeed, his father sent him off to the local police station with a note. Trembling, little X handed the scrap of paper to the officer in charge, who read its instructions, led the boy down a corridor, and locked him in a jail cell for several minutes. “This is what we do to naughty boys!” the policeman warned him sternly.• From that single episode, X would claim, arose a lifelong terror of the police. It was a terror that would surface time and again in his films, especially those in which the main character is falsely accused of a crime and pursued by the authorities.• Whether the incident actually occurred, or whether it was just a colourful fiction that X trotted out for interviewers, is impossible to say. Still, the story does suggest that the emotions of fear and anxiety loomed large in his earliest memories.
  13. 13. 6.• Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock
  14. 14. 7.• During World War II, X expressed his support for the German war-effort on several occasions and met with Hitler. In 1940 he wrote that "the Germans are fighting for us".

  16. 16. 8.• In 1941 X was diagnosed with cancer and, following surgery, he started using a wheelchair.• Eventually by 1950 he stopped painting in favour of his paper cutouts. The cut out was not an renunciation of painting and sculpture: he called it “painting with scissors.” X said, "Only what I created after the illness constitutes my real self: free, liberated.” Moreover, experimentation with cut-outs offered X innumerable opportunities to fashion a new, aesthetically pleasing environment: "You see as I am obliged to remain often in bed because of the state of my health, I have made a little garden all around me where I can walk... There are leaves, fruits, a bird.

The band Z and A perform as an inept gang of robbers called "the Crackers," who are always "looking for people who like to draw." In the same vein, Zachariah boasts: "I can think, I can wait, and Im fast on the draw." This is a parody of Ys famous line: "I can think, I can wait, I can fast."• The group Z and A’s name is derived from communist politics; Z was a popular name for Joseph Stalin in the 1940s, while A refers to Mao Zedongs statement that the true revolutionary "moves through the peasantry as ______ does through water."

  48. 48. 3.• He compressed it 666 times as an mp3
  49. 49. 4.• Who on what?• ”…Their early work was a little too New Wave for my taste, but when Sports came out in 83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. Hes been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor. [...] In 87, Huey released this, Fore!, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Y," a song so catchy, most people probably dont listen to the lyrics. But they should, because its not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, its also a personal statement about the band itself!”
  50. 50. 4.• Patrick Bateman• Huey Lewis and the News• He talks about them right before he axes Paul Allen
  51. 51. 5.• The album cover for X was designed by photographer Sølve Sundsbø. Sundsbø had been hired by fashion magazine Dazed & Confused in the late 1990s to produce something with a "technological feel, something all white". He suggested taking shots using a three-dimensional scanning machine.• The model for the shot wore an all-white makeup because it produces the "best results"; for the image, the model wore a twill-coloured cape. The computer could not read the colours so it was replaced with spikes, and the head in the image was chopped because the machine only scanned 30 centimetres. The editor of the magazine liked the image and eventually featured it in one of their publications. Y saw the image in the magazine and approached Sundsbø for permission to use the image as the cover of X. For the albums singles, Y asked Sundsbø what he could do; the latter suggested scanning the head of each member of the band.• X?

While Nigel is showing Marty his Marshall guitar amplifiers, he points out one in particular whose control knobs all have the highest setting of ______, unlike standard amplifiers, believing that this numbering actually increases the volume of the amp ("Its ___ louder").
