New this week Question: What film is this quote from? "You answer the questions and he gets the girl"? Or something along those lines? Thanks.

New this week Question: I am trying to find a movie (made for TV maybe?) from about 1985 to 1995 where one boy is either a runaway or homeless and living in or near a train station or maybe a subway. He figures out how to make money by selling used newspapers to commuters. I also remember a part where he is helped by a lady working at a snack bar/lunch counter who sells him two ice cream cones for the price of one. He also has an older boy for a friend who I think was developmentally disabled and gets injured running from the police maybe? The main character was an African American boy about 11 years old and the older boy was white and about 13-14. All of this is a vague memory so the details could be mixed up between more than one movie. I remember seeing it on TV more than once. Thank you.

New this week Question: In a scene from what movie did explorers go into a desert where it was snowing? Not Close Encounters.

Question: I saw this movie a while back, I think it was on lifetime. It was about a woman who marries a man, but he's abusive and she has an affair with an actor that looked like or could possibly be David Hyde Pierce. She ends up killing her husband, and her lover takes the fall. At the very end of the movie she's all beat up, with a black eye, and her dead husband's friend who she never liked comes to her while she's in some type of cave thing in the woods. She can barely see and starts crying when she realizes her psychic friend predicted she'd end up with a man she thought was her lover, but turns out to be the dead husband's friend. What is it called?

New this month Question: A cowboy movie of 4 or 5 street teens who in the event of stealing a horse and wagon discovers there is a baby on board, and they grow up raising her as their sister. One of the brothers was black. I think his name was Adam, and another brother was named Colt.

New this month Question: What is the name of this black and white movie? A cowboy has himself thrown in jail to break out another cowboy (his son?). The younger cowboy won't leave, so the older one breaks out and heads for Canada until the heat dies down. It's a lighthearted, funny movie until the end, when he crosses the border. He and his horse are hit by a car. The police have to shoot the dying horse and he's taken away in an ambulance. The film ends with a shot of his bloody cowboy hat in the middle of the street.

New this month Question: There was a TV movie about a man who was accused of raping a blind woman. He insists he's innocent but the woman claims that she could identify him by a scar on his face. The man goes to prison, and while he's there he makes friends with another prisoner who tells him that one prisoner keeps boasting about how he raped a blind woman and someone else took the fall for it. Ironically, the prisoner has the same scar as the innocent man. The woman, now a lawyer, receives a letter from the man informing her of some new evidence, and when a DNA test is done, the man is finally freed from prison. The woman then goes to the man to make amends for sending him to prison.

New this month Question: Looking for a TV show episode. A woman who was an informant in Iraq was killed. She was having an affair with her FBI handler. The guy responsible was interviewed early in the episode. He made a deal with the feds to escape prosecution, but was able to be prosecuted by the military because he was being treated for an injury at the VA.

A jungle village, a single nurse/missionary meets a roving doctor touring remote tribes, They fall in love, after he is long gone she finds she is pregnant, aghast at the situation herself, but the tribe welcome her as family and together they raise her son. The doctor returns after 5-6 years, finds he has a son but can't let the stigma soil his family's name. He plans that they should marry, she being a widow, and he adopts her son so they can go back to civilization, out of the savage jungle with nobody knowing the details. She tells him off and stays.

Question: Hi, I'm searching for a name of a movie that I saw maybe 20 years ago. I can't remember much, but I think it's in a small town, and there's this guy that hides in the woods (can't remember why), and either his grandmother or mother are helping him, they give him food, etc. I know, not much to go on, but I'd really appreciate if someone would help me. Thank you.

New this month Answer: Sounds like maybe Spitfire Grill.

Question: A girl is in a foster home and the only friends she has are these little paper dolls. The other girls bully her, and one girl tries to drown her when she's in the bath. She gets told off for it because she wasn't supposed to get her hair wet, and then she pushes the bully down the stairs, who I think breaks her neck and dies.

New this month Answer: The movie name is "Dustbin Baby".

Question: Forgotten the film. I think it starts with a blond American young teenage boy driving a (possibly a red sports car (I think it's his step-dads or something, he's using it without permission). I think he's racing towards a cliff edge in a desert, but I think he stops it just in time for him to leap out, but I think the car goes over the edge. I think during this drive a futuristic police man (that I think may be a robot, not human?) is following him on a hovering motorbike, and manages to stop him and maybe return him home. Thanks.

New this month Question: I don't know if this is a TV show or a movie, but I know that there is a kid who gets in trouble or similar, and has to become another kid's tutor. The tutor goes to the kids house and eventually gets together with the kid's sister, I think?

Question: I kind of remember watching this episode of what I believe was The Twilight Zone, and the episode was about a woman who started to find stuff in her home moved after she was gone, or not the way she left it. Then at the end she finds out someone was living in her house during the hours she was working or something, sharing the same house and did not know until then... It may be something else.

Answer: If it is actually an episode of "The Twilight Zone, " you might be referring to the one titled "Mirror Image." In it, a woman (Vera Miles) in a bus station experiences strange occurrences: The ticket agent and bathroom attendant both say they had encounters with her that she does not recall. Her suitcase moves without her recollection of moving it. She sees an image of her twin behind her in a mirror. Eventually we learn that she has come to believe she is being taunted by her doppelgänger, a malevolent identical being from an alternate universe who can survive in this realm only by eliminating and replacing its good counterpart. She is aided by a man (Paul Grinstead) who, at first, is sympathetic to her. However, he eventually fears for her sanity and calls the police to have her taken in for psychiatric evaluation. A short time later, he encounters and lays chase to his own evil twin who has stolen his valise and is about to attempt, we assume, to replace him. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirror_Image_ (The_Twilight_Zone). Or it may be the movie "Bad Ronald", where a kid accidently kills the neighbor girl who taunts him because he's a loner, weird nerd type. His mom decides to hide him inside walls of their house. She ends up getting sick and dies. A new family moves in and he watches them from inside the walls.
