Movie and clown

Does anyone know what movie Mycroft was watching at the beginning? It was obviously a favorite of his because he was saying the lines along with the actors? Also, I thought it was horribly ironic that Mycroft could shoot at the clown, which he feared, but declined to shoot the doctor.

Re: Movie and clown

I think maybe because the clown was more threatening and even so more in-human? Like a monster.

Re: Movie and clown

The movie was one of the things I really liked about the episode. Of course he's be into noir film and femme fatales.

Re: Movie and clown

I don't know the film, no. But I loved seeing Mycroft that way. It's sweet that he was that into film noir.

The clown freaked me out! (But then I have a genuine phobia)... maybe the reason Mycroft didn't fight was that he was too freaked out to know how to react?

Re: Movie and clown

I didn't recognise the film - it looked to me like a more recent film, filmed in the style of a '40s/50s noir.  I loved that Mycroft knew all the lines!  I kept wanting to give Mycroft a hug all the way through this episode (although I know he wouldn't want one).  Would have loved a brotherly hug at the end, but Mummy holding his hand made up for it!

Re: Movie and clown

A believe, the clown is from "It" short series. 

Edit: there is already one topic, concerning your question too

Re: Movie and clown

Surely nobody likes clowns?
My entire cinema audience audibly gasped.
Freaky as hell.

Re: Movie and clown

I never understood the hatred of clowns. It's just people in makeup. What I hate are mascots. You don't know who is in the costume and they try and touch you with out permission. It could be a friendly young female or some old man trying to touch you. You can tell a persons motive by their eyes and you can't see mascots eyes, clowns you can.
