PS: Find Carmen Now! (Image List)

The list page: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls080828537/
The world famous computer game, television show and animated show, thief, Carmen Sandiego is at it again! It is up to you, intrepid detectives, must do two things. 1) (for fun) figure out where she is and 2) of which of these following crimes she most likely will commit! All we got for clues are these vague rumors and image references to movies. Some think that this a diabolical plot to trick people to interact with the IMDB to read the movie summaries for clue to figure out where Carmen is. Parish the thought! No one is that devious. (Yes, I am.) Which crime is Carmen most likely to pull?

In case you have heard any other rumors about where she is, report them here. (You have to go here for the answers too. Just make sure to report rumors with lots of clues, location of the crime, and an object to be stolen. Also, the stolen object must be so silly and outlandish that it can’t be possibly stolen in real life, like the smile off the Mona Lisa‘s face, so therefore we are not encouraging a real life crime. (It is called being socially responsible.)

I going to limit the options down to about 15 to 25 to make it easier on the guys at the IMDB to post this as a poll.

The answer to my first seven:

1 - Acne Crimenet Chief’s Office. It is on the door.

2 - Pamplona, Spain

3 - New York City, New York, USA. Ed your post on this thread inspired this option - https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi...

“ Where is Carmen?

Answer....

Home Alone

Having Breakfast at Tiffany's

At The Last Picture Show

Visiting The Last House on the Left

Trying to Escape from New York”

I bet you didn’t know Tiffany’s had a restaurant. Nether did I until I did some research. You learn something everyday. Thanks.

3 - The Bastille, Paris, France

4 - the diamonds on the satellite, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

5 - Sienna, Italy

6 - Rome, Italy (an easy one)

dgranger,

Shouldn't that be:
1 - Acme Crimenet Chief’s Office. It is on the door.

Acne is a skin condition. Acme is a company featured in Looney Tunes cartoons.

Ok, but I had first started a title list with that before deciding a image list would be better.

Done. And thanks. I spotted an error in the first option that needed correcting.

Maybe she would like to stole the original Whistler's Mother that decorates Mr. Bean apartment?

Added. I take it she is in Los Angeles? I need the story here. I take it she is not stealing a ruined “Whistler’s Mother” but an original Mr. Bean?

I'm not so good at making up stories. But the portrait would be an original Mr. Bean, which, at the end of the movie ends up at hi apartment in London.

Maybe she tried to steal the portrait at the Art Gallery in Los Angeles, only to discover it was a poster, and then she traced the original art back to Mr. Bean's apartment. In the robbery she could also take the Teddy Bear that was guarding it?

Just updated it. It is a little long. How do you like it?
I had just learned something new about “Love Actually “ a great adult Christmas film, tonight . I didn’t know Rufus was supposed to be a Christmas angel. That explains why he (Rowen Atkinson) was at the airport and he turns to the audience to give a little smirk and wink.

Looks great. A fantastic work including many Rowan Atkinson characters.

I hope you get more suggestions soon, this is a very good and creative idea.

And I just added another Atkinson character, Agent Small-Fawcett from “Never Say Never Again”. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086006/...

This is really funny. #4 is especially hilarious ("stealing the smile off of Mona Lisa's face" is classic) and would get my vote. LOL and bravo!

I'm going to let this sit in my mind awhile so maybe I'll come up with a suggestion or two, although I doubt that they'd be as funny as the ones you have so far. : )

A new one was added with a very twisted sense of logic!

I'm not familiar with Carmen Sandiego, but maybe she would like to go to Seville, Spain like her namesake from the opera?

Perhaps her crime is a crime of passion. Feel free to adapt this idea.

Wait a moment. There is another opera other than “Carmen” that uses Seville. Can she pull a double crime? Can she steel a certain barber’s chair and commit a crime of passion too?

Another rumour I heard, Apparently Dorothy was looking for her ruby slippers in Kansas to take them back to Oz, but she could not find them. Carmen SanDiego was reported in the state.

Also, in France the Gnome of Amelie's father is missing, but this time he did not went on a trip, and has not been sending postcards. Id Carmen took kim they can be anywhere in the world.

Pencho, you are going to love this twist. There IS a town in Kansas you can used for The Wizard of Oz. It is Liberal, Kansas. While the outside scream tourist trap, the inside looks pretty good and they do have the model of the house used in the film in the twister segment. And oh, the people who play Dorothy, when they retire, they have there names inscribed in the Yellow Brick Road and have their ruby slippers retired too. Here are pictures of the statues mentioned in the clue:

dgranger,

For your consideration, Carmen SanDiego stole the gnome from Amélie while the gnome was traveling on vacation.
