Hey, just wondered if anyone had an answer to this question for me:

Brendon says that Emily saw Laura in Tug's car "The Pin riding shotgun" whic would imply that Laura was in the driver's seat, if Emily could see her. However, Laura's cigarette is flicked out of the window on Brendon's side which would indicate that Laura was riding shotgun, but if that's the case, how could Emily have seen her? Did Laura lean over The Pin to flick out her cigarette or did The Pin flick it out for her? Or have i missed something crucial?

Also, were the quotes "It was you Angel" and "Now you are dangerous" from Brendon inspired by Spade from The Maltese Falcon? I remember hearing that the esteemed director reads Dashiell Hammet.

Thanks :)

I always figured The Pin bummed a smoke from Laura, though I've never really understood why she'd be driving Tug's car anyway. Sometimes you don't understand everything about a movie and have to take what the characters tell you on faith, I guess :)

Welcome to the forum!

Yeah i thought it had to be him otherwise it wouldn't figure. But then it's not as if all films noir are without flaws anyway- takes Howard Hawkes The Big Sleep; they had to ask Chandler who killed the taxi driver and even he didn't know.

Thanks for the reply too :)
