3. My only challenge is that Dith Pran was NOT a movie character
The Killing Fields was based on real incidents in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge between Pran and writer Sydney Schanberg (was he with the Post or the Times, I forget). These were actual real live people and not fictional characters like the rest.

But I still voted for Pran, I love that movie so much!!

4. Well, George Bush was voted "Best Movie Villian" in a magazine poll
So I figured it was okay for Dith Pran to be a movie hero. ;)

9. The movie quote that has rattled around in my brain more than any other:
"Eat it till ya choke, you sick, twisted fuck!"

...Paul Sheldon to Annie Wilkes in "Misery".
