Speaking of museum curators? We promised earlier we’d explain more about the text of the “BILL SKINS FIFTH” article — the one that is actually about Lecter, despite the headline about Buffalo Bill.
The first sentence of the article reads: “Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a medical and society figure of Baltimore for many years has been charged in the brutal slaying of a museum curator at his home…” This is interesting because Hannibal does kill a museum curator, and take his job… but that doesn’t happen until the movie Hannibal, which of course takes place after Silence of the Lambs.
The TV series Hannibal also has Lecter pulling the ol’ kill-the-curator-and-take-his-job routine. Hey, maybe the guy just kills a lot of museum curators.
