The X Files, X-File: Samantha Mulder
made from scratch movie prop
Samantha Mulder’s X-File
It’s fair to say that without Samantha, there would be no X-Files as we know them today. They would have just been a dusty old collection of strange cases that the FBI would rather have left forgotten, however, with Samantha’s abduction came Mulder’s quest for the truth. In many ways I feel Samantha is as special to us, the fans, as she is to Mulder.
Little of this chart was actually scene on screen, just a part of the front and back covers in “Conduit” and “The End” and then two partial shots of the photo page in “Conduit”. When it came time to replicate this file, a lot of imagination was needed to fill out the pages and fill in the missing blanks on the front cover. I copied the screen seen parts as accurately as I could using screen caps from the episodes, a couple of files from the old X-Files PC game that had two scanned pages of Samantha’s file, and another shot of a couple of those same pages now in a private collection. The two pages on the disc were the blue cover sheet and a full shot of the yellow photo page with the top of the white page sticking up behind it, which allowed me to replicate those three pages as closely as possible.
Samantha’s middle name and birth date change from the SA pages & cover to the case file pages inside, this was a deliberate choice on my part to have the file contain screen info from “Conduit” and “Paper Clip”.
The file pages that I made up archive:
Anasazi/The Blessing Way/Paper Clip
I chose to end the case file information in Samantha's file with "Redux II" seeing as how the Cigarette Smoking Man stole the file later that same season.
