The Cecil Adams Fan's Movie Viewing Companion

Has a guy been stuck in the Paris airport since 1988 for lack of the right papers?
goes with
The Terminal

What’s up with the strange end of country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons?
goes with
Grand Theft Parsons
(this was in and out of theatres so quick- I’m still mad at myself for missing it!)

Did somebody once go aloft in a lawn chair tied to a bunch of helium balloons?
goes with
Danny Deckchair
Anyone got any others???

Was Chuck Barris a hit man for the CIA? relates to Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, but I’m not sure if that counts. The question Cecil answered was based on the book, and the movie was based on the book.
I’m assuming that you’re not looking for stuff like:
Straight Dope Staff Report: Why does water make the Wicked Witch of the West melt? since that’s really a question about the movie. You’re looking for questions, tackled by Cecil, that later became books/movies?

That’s the idea that inspired this Thread, but really any examples where the viewing experience may be enhanced when accompanied with a SD column would be quite fair game for this Thread. The examples you listed are welcome!

Now, what was that movie about the people chasing the duck around the courtyard???
