1) Not much to add to what others have said. Obvious commonality is the blond. The early injection of humor exists in both scenes with the audience from yesterday (although I found the formal attire funnier than the man tripping or the woman snoozing), and the buffoon mimicking the description of the murder. Both scenes are highly energized with the running and dancing in the first and the rush of people and machinery of the second. The mood of the two scenes is very different. Yesterday we saw a confident performer and felt she was about to experience the sleazy side of show-biz but she did not seemed threatened. In today's scene we open with a terrified murder victim, and the whole world seems to be caught up in the excitement. 2) Curiously I couldn't make out the "how" of the murder. Maybe it was the fault of my display, but there were no hands to indicate strangling or stabbing, and no indication in the readable type passing through the newspaper equipment. No bonus points here for spotting "Hitch" either. I thought he might be the guy who crossed from left to right as the crowd began to disperse, but he couldn't have been on the screen for 6 seconds.????
