It was a really good spoiler. It was just the right amount of info in three words, and the association of the word "hydrophobic" for anyone who read the book as a young kid is indelible.

Goodfellas


I'd love to play more but I cant keep up with it. I've been working my Azov Sea and don't work with a computer. I check it out all the time and it's a great thread to read even if you don't play, keep it up smile.gif

Thanks, Tack.

Since Tack didn't spoil a new film after answering the last one, I'll post a new spoiler.

That would be creepy, given that Velvet was 14 in the novel, and played in the film by a then 12-year-old Elizabeth Taylor. tongue.gif

I'm pretty sure his three words were for his own spoiler, and I'm gonna take a wild guess that he's spoiling National Velvet.

Haha, sorry, I blew threw the whole thread pretty quickly and obviously missed connecting some prior posts. I also wasn't even thinking about the possible movie!

I had friends who were traveling in Europe at the time Free Willy was released, and they swore to me that, in one of the countries they visited (I don't recall which one anymore), the title was translated to the local equivalent of "The Whale Who Jumps to His Freedom." Might as well have just called it "Spoiler Alert: The Movie." smile.gif

Want to say Rosemary's Baby, but "brood" implies multiple offspring born at once.
