Should the movie and book have their own pages?

No, but I think we should move the page to Franchise.Sin City. Will probably do this my self tomorrow.

Sorry to anyone confused by a non sequitur edit reason about time travel. I was working in Safari, typed in "not an example" and hit submit, and then it autofilled in the rest from some other edit reason I'd made.

Apparently, someone calling himself Cuchulainn decided to delete entire sections of the main page. I restored them but what is supposed to happen in instances like this?

Looks like this is a non-example:

  • Karma Houdini: Senator Roark (at least, until they finally get around to making the sequel).

    • Senator Roark doesn't apply either. All that mattered to him was the delusion that his only son could someday be President, which never really died until his son did. Also, once his brother dies, he may not be nearly as powerful anymore.

Looks like this is a non-example:

  • Anachronism Stew: Some of the cars are from the 1950s.
    • One can imagine that, being crime syndicates, someone up higher has an affinity for old cars, and got them restored illegitimately.
      • We see "modern" cars being driven and Dwight is amazed to find a 1950's 1960's Mustang in good condition so that is the most likely scenario. (First Mustang did not roll of the production line until '64)

In his first (and earliest) appearance Dwight owns that Mustang. It later disappears halfway through the book, and is replaced by a 1959 Cadillac Eldorado. It could be that he lost the Mustang when Marv decides to steal Ava Lord's Tucker, because he might otherwise never have the chance to drive a Tucker.

It's a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado he's surprised to find in good condition. The car is owned by a mafia son.

My personal theory about the old cars (or at least all the '57 Bel Airs) is that the myth of '57 Bel Airs being made by a clandestine company (with hand pounded body panels and stolen Chrysler frames, engines and transmissions) in Southern Illinois is true in the Sin City universe, and not only that, but they also made sedans, and possibly Nomad (the two door wagon Nancy owns).
