Answer: Cape Fear! Sam Bowden is an attorney who, 14 years ago, withheld evidence in his client Max Cady’s rape trial that would have knocked years off Cady’s sentence.
While in prison, Cady dreams of taking his revenge against Bowden. In his mind, Bowden is the reason he’s lost his wife, his child, and 14 years of his life. When Cady is released, he heads straight for Bowden looking for revenge. But instead of going after Bowden himself he focuses on his wife and daughter. The context of the quote is from the scene where Max Cady tricks Bowden’s daughter Danielle into meeting him, allegedly for a part in a school drama. Danielle quickly discovers the ruse and curious, she asks of Cady: “Well um, why do you hate my father?” To which Cady answers: “I don’t hate him at all. Oh, no, I pray for him. I’m here to help him. I mean, we all make mistakes, Danielle. You and I have. At least we try to admit it. Don’t we? But your daddy, he don’t. Every man carries a circle of Hell around his head like a halo. Every man, every man has to go through Hell to reach his paradise.”

What is missing from this sequence?
Mr. Rose’s statement: “I didn’t do it. I never left a footprint because a woman did. I entered the room before the person who took in the poison. I must say though, she was in there for a quarter of an hour before someone else went in!”
Ms. Tulip’s statement: “Okay, I admit it! I took in the revolver, even though my motive wasn’t revenge. A man entered the room after me and his motive was either rage or blackmail.”
Sir Daisy’s statement: “All I know is, I did leave a fingerprint, but that doesn’t explain why Miss Lily lost a hair, does it? Oh yes! The person who entered seventy minutes before me took in the lead pole.”
Lord Pansy’s statement: “I entered after a woman, who did not take in rope because the last person to visit him did. I was in there for more than thirty-five minutes confronting Mr. Death with my motive, which, may I say, wasn’t greed or blackmail.”
Miss Lily’s statement: “Yes, you caught me! My motive was jealousy, but it wasn’t as bad as that man’s blackmail motive, who entered at five minutes past nine. I entered before another man who left the incriminating clue of the blood drop.”
The person who entered the room at half past ten is the real killer. Who did it?
