            It even features a couple of familiar characters . . .
            Copper
            Boomer
            Bear
            Badger
            Porcupine
            It even had a similar scene, when the lady was in the barn milking the cow and gave Todd a couple of squirts of milk as she’s filling the bucket (like the cats in TTOTC). Then Todd goes over to the biddies and causes a ruckus which then causes the bucket to spill. Reminded me of that old phrase about a fox being in the henhouse.

            “No place for biddies” ?

                        Tom Brown's Schooldays. Fenn would have liked the whole movie, but would have been particularly interested in the dialog at 4:35 in the 1940 version when writing the poem.

                                Practically all mankind's most endearing movies and legends follow the Hero's Journey story-pattern. I utilized the 8-step model as I Journeyed through Forrest's treasure poem, and these are some of the movies (under a canopy of Stars) that I used along the way.

                                The Primer - Goldfinger - Fleming & Broccoli & The Thomas Crown Affair (Pierce Brosnan)
                                In chapter Gold and More, on page 133, Forrest writes that his pirate dream jarred him awake. To be jarred is also to be shaken. Agent Bond, James Bond, began each martini order with his signature phrase, shaken not stirred, spoken by Bond for the first time in the movie Goldfinger. [link]
                                Pierce Brosnan played secret17agent (agent = bonded trustee) James Bond in four films from 1995 to 2002. He also starred as the ultra-rich playboy Thomas Crown in the 1999 remake of the heist film The Thomas Crown Affair. At the end of the movie bowler hat and red tie (ti-red) SOM guys flood the museum.

                                The Threshold - IT - Stephen King
                                King’s IT is said to draw from the storyline of Peter Christian’s Three Billy Goats Gruff. [link] But the bridge is switched out for a sewer, the troll for the circus clown, and the goats for kids.
                                *A Billy is a male goat. A kid is a young goat. To kid is to clown, or play a hob. A Law GOAT is a sewer (suer) (wwwh), IT27 is the home of brown. (link.)
                                King’s IT opens with Bill making a paper boat for his kid brother Georgie. The paper boat floats down a sewer (HOB), and a circus clown named Pennywise captures it. The hob offers his prize catch back to Georgie, enticing him to “take(33) IT(34).” And, kids who touch IT die (wwwh).
                                Circus is from Old Latin for ring (circle). When a circle’s diameter is 1 unit, its circumference is π (<-Pi) units. A PC keyboard Pi (π) is accomplished by using the keys alt + 227. However, a CapITal I & T can produce a similar effect — IT.

                                The Challenges - Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass - Carroll
                                In TTLG, Alice the kid, who's playing the role of a pawn takes a train to the third square. Seated across from her is a paper clothed character with a GOAT seated next to him. [vi.]

                                The Abyss - Silence of the Lambs
                                The Big Picture! Orion Pictures & Buffalo Bill!

                                The (Grave) Transformation - Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
                                BLAME RALPH - During a visit with Forrest, Ralph Lauren fell in love with a Crow Indian hat and offered to buy it. Forrest refused. Lauren quipped, “well, you can’t take it with you.” Forrest answered that he wasn’t’ going. He was going to defy death! [link.]
                                Cinemas most death-defying character has to be Indiana Jones — played by Harrison Ford. On page 23 (TTOTC) Ford is mentioned 4 times. Forrest introduced “Indiana Jones types” as being willing seekers of his cache. Indiana Jones (p. 131) and the word precisely on the poem page 132, are a word plot match.
                                In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indy needed the Holy Grail to heal his father’s fatal wound. In a final test, Indy had to make a death-defying leap of faith into the abyssness of the Canyon of the Crescent Moon. [link.] His successful landing and careful, gradual step by step advancement across earned him the way. The ancient Templar Knight guarded the Holy Grail.

                                The Revelation - Tarzan (1999)
                                Disney’s 37th animated feature film. [link.] In the movie, young Tarzan, unaware of his Man heritage, is trained to be an ape. [link.] The ape training scene features bananas and waterfalls. [link.]
                                “There are three kinds of people. There are those who make things happen, there are those who watch things happen, and there are those that don’t know what’s happening. The train doesn’t go past the banana tree but one time so I want to reach and grab every banana I can." (Fenn, 2013)

                                The Atonement - Rango (2011)
                                Rango is an andromorphic chameleon and a wannabe Hero with a Thousand Faces.
