I thought I'd pass this along...  (My review of _Sleepy Hollow_ mentioned
the reference to _On the Town_).

Thought you'd be interested in this info at, and learn you have a pal in Paris who noticed the ON THE TOWN allusion (the Paris audience looked me up as a nutty)



Summary: A wisecrack unnoticed by my Parisian audience

I enjoyed this last Burton very much (for me, it's his best). Although the
action is scaring all along, some breaks are provided for the soft-hearted,
such as: "Do you think he's dead?" "The problem, is that he was already
dead!" But my biggest laugh was at the end, when Depp tells Ricci: "This is
New York, and you'll get accustomed to it very quickly: the Bronx is up and
the Battery's down" (an hommage to Betty Comden-Adolph Green-Leonard
Bernstein's ON THE TOWN). I even expected a final title : AND PEOPLE WEREN'T
YET TRAVELING UNDERGROUND.Of course,I was the only to push a big laugh in
the Parisian afternoon audience...
