    Don't know. Lucky for me the display case is cryogenically sealed.

    Was it Kalifornia or True Romance that Pitt turned a honey bear container into a pot pipe?

    The room I stayed in had memorabilia from Tarzan and the Lost City. The movie grossed $1.1 million on its opening weekend and another $1 million after that. More people know the movie from staying in that room than having seen in it theaters.

    Friends of ours had a display case with either a conehead or a planet of the apes head (I know they're very different; I just can't remember - it was a full head "mask" though) They put a towel over it for their entire stay because it creeped them out so badly.:peace:

    But hey - I'm still talking about that many years later, so......any publicity is good publicity?:evillaugh

    That takes the cake for creepiest.

    To date I have had the following.
    - untouchables room ( mass duplicated)
    - star trek (forget which one)
    - seven room (creepy)
    - back to future suite (very cool)
    - kalifornia ( aka stinky socks room)

    Each room was a different type. So I have stayed in almost every room type except boulevard and apex suites. Pretty much still think its overrated junk. They would do better to remove it and give the place some nicer furnishings. Place is really showing its wear.

    What was in the Good Will Hunting room? Hair from Robin Williams' arms? Seriously, that guy has the hairiest arms of all time. If he went to the zoo, the monkeys would be pointing at him and talk about how hairy his arms are.
