The security guards were dispensable. But one cannot judge the scene without considering that it's "only" a symbolical shoot-out.Who piled the bodies up and cleaned the battlefield: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/it/0/0e/Pulp_Fiction.JPG - Mr. Wolf. Who else. - BCNU!
Hello Arno, Ah! It was a symbolic shoot-out, I'm afraid I had never considered that before. I was always taken up by the action on the screen. Yes, I understand who cleared the bodies from the battlefield. But in this case it wasn't Number 6 and his confederates, they were too busy escaping The Village. Nor was it the delegates, or anyone else in that cavern, as it, like The Village, was being evacuated. And yet, when the rocket blasted off out of its silo, might not the cavern be filled with flames and heat from the rockets exhausts, burning everything in the cavern to a crisp, including the security guards bodies?Very kind regardsDavidBCNU
