* Creepy, NightmareFuel inspiring [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi]] TortureTechnician Toht does this in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk.'' He comes into the tent where ActionGirl Marion is being held, effortlessly disarms her, then pulls out a strange chain and wood instrument. Everyone who remembers Toht [[EyeScream holding a red hot poker inches from Marion's eye]] earlier in the movie holds their breath...then lets out a relieved sigh as it turns out to merely be a portable coat hanger.
