Looked at the hiring scene again and though the animal might look like a sort of jackalope, the horns ain't right. They don't look like antlers and the ears don't look like those of a rabbit. I think that question (#2) has yet to be properly answered.


I beg to differ:







Since the Jackalope is a mythical creature, it can take various forms. Often it's a Jackrabbit with antelope horns, thus the name. But it can also have deer antlers, as in your pic. The jackalope in Aguirre's trailer is a mountain hare with antelope horns.
Pet rabbits often have hanging ears, there are breeds specialised in it, so I guess the taxidermist has chosen to make the ears hanging. I think the genetic disposition for this mutation must be latent in the wild forms of rabbits, and probably also in hares. So maybe there even are some wild hares running around with lop ears, who knows?

She was played by Brooklynn Proulx, Annie's granddaughter.

The answer I was looking for was the last name of Proulx.  I was unable to find a source that confirmed she was actually related to Annie.  Several stated that she was no relation.  At the time she was in Brokeback, the actress spelled her first name with only one 'n.'

 :laugh: You missed the early years, when some of us did little else but discuss the movie and story to its tiniest details. The jackrabbit came up back then. I've still had the pics from the discussion years ago, just had to upload them again. Of course, I had never heard of a jackalope before BBM. The things you learn on BM... :laugh:



Roland's question (#5) is still up for grabs. :)

WELL, I guess that's that then ... When viewing the stills, my argument for a 'goat' doesn't stand the litmus test either (again because of the ears) so the community's point of view returning us to the original answer of 'jackalope' stands as correct.

Thanks Penthesilea. Congrats Front-Ranger.

5- What was the pattern on the breast of Laureen's blouse in the "Didn't that piss-ant use to ride bulls" scene?


I'm going to try and answer this one from memory and not use Google.

 :laugh:

I can't remember the exact color of the blouse, but the pattern was a pair of horseshoes.  I remember thinking it looked odd, having one shoe "cup" each breast.

#6.   What is the brand name of peanuts on the display that Alma Jr. destroys?

That's a very tough one! I can't remember anyone ever mentioning it, and that's no wonder, it's next to impossible to identify the brand. Most of the time you can't read the name when the peanuts are shown. Only for one split-second you see them in close-up, when Junior grabs for them. I had to go back and forth on my DVD a couple of times before I managed to press the pause button in the exact right half second. :laugh:

The brand name is "Growers"!

Phew, hard work ;)
Something easier from me this time:
