In the scene when the red space ship crashes on the Vogon planet, there is a sound of a plane crashing. That sound is the same one used on Pink Floyd's The Wall. Its played at the end of the song "in the flesh?".

As soon as the movie begins, start timing. At exactly 42 minutes into the movie, Deep Thought tells the crowd that The Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42.

At the end of the movie, right after Marvin says "...The restaurant is at the OTHER end of the universe" and the ship turns around. As the heart of gold initiates its improbabilly thingy drive, it turns into a number of random objects. The last in this... more

The Orignal Marvin - 7.0/10 with 1 votes
Look at the part where Aurthur and Ford are being tortured by (the strangely beautiful) poetry. In the backround you can see the council of the elders and behind them there is the orignal Marvin without a left arm

When Arthur, Ford and Zaphod go to Vogsphere and have to stand in a queue. In the queue is a large, metal robot. This is the Marvin model from the old BBC version of HHGTTG. He is best seen when Arthur mentions Zaphod to the receptionist. There is a shot... more

In the scene where the Heart of Gold reaches planet Magrathea, the pre-recorded warning anouncement hologram is none other than the actor who played the original Arthur Dent in the original BBC television series!

When Arthur and the planet-making guy are riding across the factory floor, if you pause the movie at 1 hour and about 22 seconds, the camera pans out, and you can see a planet in the shape of a face. I haven't read the book, but my guess is it is Douglas... more
