The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
This year's annual Musea Christmas story, 'Senlin', about the world's greatest dancer, had a major plot point connected to this passage,
"COME TO THE WINDOW! Follow me. Do as you're told!" Then he (Paulo) laughed. She (Senlin) followed. Looking out the open window, down below was a milling crowd. They did NOT cheer. Senlin thought that odd! Then one young man in the center , turned on some music, and began to dance. 'Quite nice, she thought. Then two girls next to him began to follow his lead, then four, 16, 50, 75+ were all dancing in unison - moonlit dancers in a sapphire blue night! Senlin smiled and clapped her hands. Many on the outskirts of the crowd that were not in on it, clapped in astonishment too. "Wonderful! Wonderful," said Senlin as she blew kisses to the crowd and they cheered back! "So Paulo that was your scheme. But what do you call that?" -
That's part one of the two part question to start off the new year: what do you call that, and who invented that?
IS: Flash Mobs, invented by Bill Wasik. See him talk about it here:
We had no correct eligible answers. Seems your mob didn't flash on this one! I don’t dumb down, so please wise up!

This World War Two film had this great line, "I think we hit the sub. I saw it go down." Name the war comedy. Good luck!
