injuries in their rush to leave the screening room.  Thirteen others 
fainted, and one man required seven stitches after he cut his head falling 
off a chair while watching the film.

A convict broke out of jail in Washington D.C., then a few days later 
accompanied his girlfriend to her trial for robbery.  At lunch, he went out 
for a sandwich.  She needed to see him, and thus had him paged.  Police 
officers recognized his name and arrested him as he returned to the
