1. A 1957 war film starring Alec Guinness.

2. An almost infeasibly perilous overpass, the crossing of which unconditionally necessitates death. Under no circumstances should any person attempt to cross this bridge. Any attempt to do so ranks as outright folly of the highest order. Basically lunacy. Alternative means of transit are strenuously advised and readily available, so there is really no need to attempt to traverse by this means. You have been warned.
1. Although it is widely acknowledged that Alec Guinness actually WAS Obi-Wan Kenobi, and that there IS such a thing as The Force, there is an urban legend which claims that he was in fact a mere actor who starred in such films as The Bridge on the River Kwai. Clearly this is utter pretense and I should know, as I myself happen to be a Jedi Knight.

2. "So did you hear about Superman?"
"Yeah, idiot thought that being more or less invincible, he could cross The Bridge on the River Kwai...clearly he was mistaken. Even I could have told him that"
"I always thought it would be kryptonite that got him in the end, but there's no accounting for some people's arrogance!"
