Trivia Edit

  • Kenneth Irons says the Witchblade is a mystery wrapped in a riddle and cloaked in the conundrum. In 1939 Winston Churchill said of Russia that it is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. Variations of that phrasing have become a standard, if pretentious, description of anything puzzling.
  • The Velvet Uderground nightclub shows movie clips on its walls, which included footage from "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms" and "The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman", both 1950s B-movies.
  • Moby intones to Irons, "On the hungry craving wind my spectre follows thee behind". In 1800 William Blake wrote a poem titled 'My Spectre around me night and day'. The spectre seems to be pursuing someone who killed seven someones. Blake was an extreme mysticist; scholars have built entire careers arguing what he ever meant.
  • Ghost Danny says to Sara, "So foul a sky clears not without a storm". In Act 4 of Shakespeare's ' The Life and Death of King John' things are really starting to fall apart for King John. Enter a messenger with troubled expression. John says, "So foul a sky clears not without a storm: pour down thy weather: how goes all in France".
