"When Roger returns, the treacherous Eve lies to him about a conversation with Kaplan [in fact, she has arranged for an attempt on his life]."

If Roger Thornhill is George Kaplan, how could he be fooled by this? And if Vandamm only wanted to kill him, why did he sic his bitch on him in the first place?

The catering on the Mt. Rushmore set was terrible: cold greasy hamburgers with limp lettuce, boiled coffee with bits of grounds floating in the mug, tinned food eaten straight from the tin, and so forth. The cinematographer got ptomaine. The assistant director got chilblains. The script girl went insane and attacked Cary Grant with a rusty scissors. These are not secrets, they are on the internet.

"They Called It Rock" by Nick Lowe is about this.

Perhaps darraghmac was hoping for a giant cartoon head of Popeye to have been added to the four presidents, through the magic of CGI? I'm afraid we'll never know. AAD is where questions go to die amid mountains of dessicated elephant bones, among which are scattered the treasure of the Sierra Madre, pristine copies of the lost works of Homer, and Senator McConnell's sense of humor.
