Wonderful bit of comic 'business'
catburton25 June 2008
Warning: Spoilers
When Dick goes to the monk's office, a young child wraps his self around Dick's leg and Dick's antics trying to dislodge him are a classic bit of comic 'business' - physical comedy that runs parallel to and separate from the verbal script.

Dick walks about and shakes his leg, up and down, front to back and side to side, all as is trying to dislodge a candy wrapper stuck to his shoe, but to no avail. The child hangs on undisturbed. Eventually, the camera pulls in and the verbal script - which has been carrying on as if nothing was happening, visually - takes over for a few minutes. When the camera pulls back as the lines are concluded, the kid is still there and Dick finally asks for help.
