It was a plot device written into the plot to intrigue the audience. Just like the briefcase in Ronin. It was supposed to be diamonds originally but the writers/director thought that too predictable and boring so they decided to let the audience come to their own conclusions on the briefcase's co…ntents.

The object that was inside the briefcase was a fraction of Marsellus Wallace's soul. Or drugs. This notion has been proven wrong many times. Inside the briefcase is what is known as a "MacGuffin" it is purely a plot device. A strong similarity has often been observed with the 1955 film n…oir Kiss Me Deadly , In which the briefcase contained radioactive material. The idea that the briefcase contains Marsellus's soul gained popular currency in the late 1990s. Analyzing the notion, Roger Ebert dismissed it as "nothing more than a widely distributed urban legend given false credibility by the mystique of the Net" ( Full Answer )

It has never been revealed what is inside the case. There have been many theories, mostly stating that there isn't much of a reason for the case. Such theories include that the glowing light is the stolen diamonds from Tarantino's previous film "Reservoir Dogs," the golden Elvis suit from "True Roma…nce," and an Oscar statue. The biggest theory is that the contents are Marcellus Wallace's soul. This can be backed up from many details shown throughout the film. The first is the combination is "666" which is the mark of the beast in the bible. Another can be the "divine intervention" that occurs after Jules and Vincent kill Brett and the accident they have afterward. The biggest detail to back up this theory is the bandage on Marcellus' neck, because according to legend, if the devil takes your soul, he takes it out of the back of your neck. Although the contents of the case could simply be gold bricks, which a big reason for Pumpkin's reaction "It's beautiful..." ( Full Answer )

There was no character called Mr. Black in the movie 'Pulp Fiction.' If this is in reference to Quentin Tarantino's earlier film 'Reservoir Dogs' in which all of the main characters are named after colors, we are still in the dark as there was no Mr. Black in that film, either. According to Mr. Wh…ite in 'Reservoir Dogs', played by Harvey Keitel, nobody was going to be named Mr. Black because there was too much competition for the name. Several actors played in both 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction': Harvey Keitel played Mr. White in RD and Winston 'The Wolf' Wolfe in PF Tim Roth played Mr. Orange in RD and Ringo in PF Steve Buscemi played Mr. Pink in RD and Buddy Holly in PF ( Full Answer )

One example of literary pulp fiction is the Modesty Blaise series written by Peter O'Donnell. Blaise is the retired leader of the crime ring known as The Network. Orphaned at a young age and forced to fend for herself in Europe and the Middle East, Modesty is fiercely independent. Willie Garvin, a… master knife-man whom she found and brought into The Network, is her closest ally. Her connections to British Intelligence through Sir Gerald Tarrant often result in the duo coming out of retirement. Their adventures take them around the world and are generally based on philanthropic, not mercenary, motives.. Some titles in the Modesty Blaise series include I, Lucifer , Sabre Tooth , A Taste for Death , and The Impossible Virgin . Coincidentally, in the movie Pulp Fiction , it is a Modesty Blaise book that Vincent Vega (played by John Travolta) is reading in the bathrooms at the coffee shop and at Butch's apartment.

Travolta played the character Danny in the 1978 musical Grease.

Also, Grease, like Happy Days, was set in the 'Fifties. I …used to confuse the two characters too, so you're not alone! ( Full Answer )
Apparently Quentin Tarantino himself doesn't know; originally it was supposed to be diamonds, but he soon realized that was too mundane. Eventually he just decided to leave it unknown, so each viewer could imagine it for themselves. Some fans have speculated that it is Marcellus Wallace's soul, w…hich he had sold to the devil, and which Sam Jackson and John Travolta had managed to buy back from Lucifer for him. This is just a theory, but it is a pretty cool one. >>This is mostly correct, the soul theory is that Marsellus sold his soul to the devil and became rich enough to buy it back, it was Brett and his companions that reneged on the deal of the return of the soul. Vincent and Jules are brought in to collect the briefcase from Brett and his friends. It seems that the briefcase might be a reference to a 1955 noir movie called Kiss Me Deadly, which featured a trunk filled with radioactive material. Just like in Pulp Fiction, the contents of the trunk glowed mysteriously. However, Quentin Tarantino claims that the correlation is just a coincidence. ( Full Answer )

If you're asking why are minor characters in a story then its to add plot. I'll use harry Potter as an example. Harry J. Potter is the antagonist which is usually the main character. Ron and Hermione are also main characters because they are also antagonists and have the most dialog and play, at tim…es, the biggest role. Luna Lovegood, Ginny Weasley, and Neville Logbottom don't play as big of a role as Harry, Ron, and Hermione but they are still an imortant addition to the stroy. But Theodore Nott of Slytherin house is a minor character. I doubt many go to bed at night wondering about Nott and that is because he plays a small part. In other words, its like a food chain. You see the biggest parts, but you need the smaller ones to. ( Full Answer )

Pulp Fiction is Not told from beginning to end. It has the almost end, then the beginning, than the end, then the almost beginning and there are variations on certain events told from the point of view of different people. John Travolta's character was killed when he was shot by Bruce Willis, the pe…rson he was hired to kill. The reason John is alive at the end of the movie, is because the end of the movie is not the end of the time line. It's a different unique movie, and it usually requires two viewings to understand it and place the events in their proper sequence. Quentin Tartentinio, the director, wanted to make a film that was not the same as other films with a beginning middle and end shown in that order. He wanted to mix things up a bit. and make the audience think about what they were seeing, instead of just watching an ordinary movie with an ordinary sequence of events, like almost every other movie ever made.
