101 uses for a belt buckle
Whilst watching dear old Clint Eastwood in the film "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" on DVD we saw him find the old one roomed school where he had, years before, hidden the booty from a bank job behind the old blackboard. Without even hesitating (indicating that he often did this sort of thing!) Clint whippped off his belt and started to unscrew the blackboard with the buckle to reveal the money. Earlier on in the film he has used two belts to pull his dislocated shoulder back into place...his sidekick Lightfoot also used his own belt to hold his possessions together. Never underestimate the use of the leather belt in American films.
