* ''Film/TheNameOfTheRose''. The herbalist discovers the book that's the [[MacGuffin motive for the various murders]] in a medieval monastery. He goes to tell William of Baskerville, who tells him to lock himself in his room and let no-one in until he arrives (Baskerville is held up in a conference). On returning to his apothecary, he shocked to find the place ransacked. He bolts the door and quickly goes to check the book is still there. It is -- lying on the floor under a table. The herbalist is revealed...until he sees a hooded figure step out from behind a curtain and walk toward him...
