The battle of the whistle song – Twisted Nerve vs. Kill Bill vol. 1


I am writing my master thesis on Quentin Tarantino’s use of intertextuality as an auteur element, and I am now writing about intertextual references in the Kill Bill series, and I saw this British movie Twisted Nerve (1968), where the character Martin Durnley is whistling the same song as Elle Driver does in Kill Bill vol. 1.

But now I ask you which version will win in a battle? Durnley’s version (the not so creepy one) or Elle Driver’s version (the a little creepy one and has a ‘I am going to kill you’ kind of aura about it)?

I think they are both great, but if I had to choose I would choose Elle Driver’s version!
