Trivia

Translating the trick instructions, the Chinese man reads, "I, Howard Hughes, being of sound mind..." This is a reference to the so-called Mormon Will of Howard Hughes discovered in 1976 that named Utah gas station owner Melvin E. Dummar a beneficiary of $156 million from the late tycoon's vast estate. The will was declared a forgery in 1978. Dummar's story and claim to having saved Hughes' life inspired the Jonathan Demme film _Melvin and Howard (1980)_. See more »
