Top 4 A Close Shave Movie Details

While searching the internet for A Close Shave movie facts, I found some interesting little known details. Obscure enough that most people could miss it, I want to make you a favor by creating ordered lists with the most intriguing hidden details.

Most of them are not blatantly obvious to be observed at first sight, so take your time and read carefully. We have extensive definitions that accurately explain any behind the scene meaning or famous dialogues.

In Wallace and Gromit: A close shave (1995) a newspaper headline about a killer dog has a subheading which reads 'Lord Baskerville exonerated' a reference to the Sherlock Holmes novel 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' (also about a killer dog who is later revealed to be something else)

When Wendolene mentions that her father left her with his old wool shop, "among other things", the camera cuts to a photograph of her father standing with Preston, who is later revealed to be one of his inventions.
