Welcome to Crowdsourcing The ClockEdit
This is an attempt to crowdsource a listing of all the movie clips contained in Christian Marclay's film The Clock, minute by minute. This is an independent fan project and is not endorsed by Christian Marclay or connected with him in any way.

7:17 PM (Note: Marclay makes a mistake) A scene from The Fortune Cookie (d. Billy Wilder, 1966): Luther "Boom Boom" Jackson (Ron Rich) exits an elevator on the 4th floor and approaches a nun behind a receiving desk at St. Marks Hospital (as shown in the previous scene not part of Maclay's clip.) He is carrying a bouquet of flowers. "Mr. Hinkle's room, what's the number?" he asks. The nun (Dodie Heath) says, "Sorry, it's not visiting hours." A conversation ensues. In the background behind the desk there is a wall clock which shows that the conversation begins at 7:17 and lasts until almost 7:18. I entered the MOMA exhibition at 6:50 PM and saw this clip about 28 minutes later. The problem is that in the narrative of The Fortune Cookie, this conversation took place at 7:17 AM and not at 7:17 PM when it was shown in Marclay's movie. Watchers of The Fortune Cookie know that the scene takes place in the morning because in the ensuing scene (not shown by Marclay)"Boom Boom" knocks on Hinkles door and is shooed away by a nurse. At this Willie Gingrich (Walter Mathau) wakes up grumbling about the nerve of "Boom Boom" showing up at the hospital after what Boom Boom has done to Hinkle. Willie then wakes-up Harry Hinkle (Jack Lemmon) opens the blinds to let in the morning light and tells Hinkle "good morning".
