A common plot device, a secret motivator, the MacGuffin is well known to film afficionados. From the Alfred Hitchcock back in the 1930s, to the mysterious briefcase of Marsellus Wallace, MacGuffins spark our imagination and make us form wild theories as to what the secret might be.
I have posted about Brainstorm before, but at that time, I never mentioned his mysterious MacGuffin. He carries a briefcase that he swears that if it is opened outside a controlled environment, it will be the end of the world.
I went to Ebay to find a suitable briefcase which turned out to be a GI Joe accessory. My Brainstorm loves it. Lifeline will never miss it
