Did You Know?


Early in the movie, Marcus opens an old-fashioned, mechanical music box which plays the first few stanzas of the melody to the nursery rhyme "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". Before it plays the last stanza ("Life is but a dream"), however, he abruptly shuts its lid, stopping the music. The next time he opens it, its mechanism should resume playing where the song had left off, but instead it starts over, at the beginning of the song. See more »
