Why in Database: Turtles in this film appear only as a mention, not too cheerful, because one of the characters reads aloud from a cookbook, a recipe for turtle soup. It says to hold the turtle by its hind legs and before it can hide its head, cut it off. The heroine states that she would not be able to do this.
