Sometimes when I'm watching an old movie, there will be a piece of hair that seems to be stuck on it. And it doesn't look like hair from someone's head, it looks like it's from, you know...the place where it grows shorter and curlier.
What the heck is up with that?
Well, if it's a porno, I'd say someone got a bit TOO involved in the movie.
As I said back then, all those hairs: they belong to me
The hair could actually be one of three things: a hair that gets caught in the gate of the camera - hence the phrase 'check the gate' - a hair that is picked up during processing or a small sliver of film that gets caught in the camera gate during production.
