    I, too, liked the color palette of the movie. If you might recall, at the time of the movie Locher’s Sundays were also using the bright primary and secondary color palette

    The unusual placement of the film cans surrounding Stiletta make me wonder if they might contain secret hidden cameras which are now recording Stiletta’s plan.


    A boneheaded con man like Silver might believe he could use it to extort or blackmail her. He obviously doesn’t know who or what he is dealing with.

    Great photos. Too bad there is not a “Like” button on posts on the board.

    I have to think the film can will come into play in an upcoming scene.

    If Sprocket had decided to open one of the cans to see what it contained, she would have blown up the car as well as herself.

    If Sprocket has been lugging these heavy film cans for years, she would have obviously felt the reels shifting inside the can when she lifted it. If not, she would realize something was not right.


    I wonder where Axel got all of those old films he showed at the Simmon’s Corners theatre?

    The Glance Magazine cover story is likely how Stiletta discovered the birth of the baby answering questions posted several days ago. However the birth event was also certainly covered by all of the various media outlets in Tracy’s city. After all, this is the grandson of a reknown detective and the son of a world-famous singing star (and former child star). The event would naturally merit mention in the news.


    Glance Magazine may have a double reason for wanting to post the baby’s photo on the cover. When Sparkle was born Glance paid B.O. Plenty $25,000 for the rights to post her photo on the cover. The fact that both the mother and the child have both appeared on the cover of Glance is a story within itself.

    The actress in the commercial DOES look a lot like a young Agate Aggie.

    Could Kandikane be related to Peppermint Patty?

    How is lettering accomplished in comics these days? Is it done on a key board?
