I actually didn't see this movie myself, but I heard someone talking about it once. It was about a woman who died and she was an organ donor. Her boyfriend/husband wanted to kill everyone who got parts of her body, and there was a character who got her eyes. I think I heard about it in the 1990s, but I don't know if it came out then. Does anyone know what movie it might be?
There was a movie that came out five to ten years ago that I had always wanted to see but, when I looked for it, could never find it. The starring man was a retired thief who was hiding out in a nursing home as a resident. One of the woman care takers finds out who he is and threatens to give him up unless he helps her with her own robbery. I'm quite sure it was a comedy. That's it, all I know.
There is only one scene I remember from this movie. An African American girl was, I think, trying to get home to her dying grandmother. For some reason she was in a subway station, on a pay phone calling home, and the family told her that she probably wasn't going to get home in time to see her grandmother alive. So she told them to put the phone to the grandmother's ear, and she sang a song. A group of young people overheard and were laughing until they realized something was wrong. Hopefully someone will know the name of this movie.
I remember seeing a trailer for a movie on TV, where a car is going down the road and runs head-on into another vehicle. The car breaks into a bunch of pieces and goes around the other car (I believe it's a semi-truck) and the car forms back together and keeps driving. Any idea what movie this is from?Cody Bowers
My mother took us to the movies in the fifties to see a movie she thought would be appropriate because of the title. I thought the title was 'The Clown' but I've searched and not found it. It is about a young boy whose brother and brother's friends make him believe he has shot and killed (?) his brother, so he runs away and ends up at a carnival in a big city. The mother and brother then search for him.
Looking for the title or actor in an 80s movie about the country running out of gasoline. But there is a guy with a red exotic car and he has a hand pump and gets what is left in gas station tanks to continue his journey, and of course the government still has fuel in reserves. Anybody know?SpeedyG
Does anyone know the title, or the star, of an old movie (probably '30s or '40s) about a bum finding a check for $1,000,000 on a sidewalk? As I remember it, it was a worthless check put there as an experiment by several men who then watched the bum use the check. I remember the bum as being a Gary Cooper type but I could not find a Cooper movie with this plot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am looking for the name of a film where there is a car that has to race around a town in less than 20 minutes, while some kids try to steal a jukebox. There is also a football game going on and the car starts out as a red '57 Chev., then goes through a car wash and comes out blue with flames. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
I am trying to find a movie about a woman who has bone cancer and decides not to have it treated as she wants to spend quality time with her daughter without being sick from chemotherapy. She and her husband and daughter move to the mountains and she makes tapes for the daughter to see when she is older and no longer has a mother. Its a really sad movie and ends with John Denver's song "Sunshine" when she dies. Any clues? I cannot remember the title and would love to find it.
Don't know title or cast; only that there was a runaway train, not Jon Voight, a chain gang laying track to divert said train, and at the end, one convict, daringly cooly, steps across the tracks in front of the oncoming train, and the train hurtles past behind him.
I saw this cartoon some time ago and I cannot remember the name. It was about 2 girls who fell down a well into a magical land. While they were trying to find their way home they encountered various people/creatures who lived there and would ask for help. One girl always helped out while the other did nothing but complain. I remember one girl was named Maria and I seem to remember a necklace being involved somehow. Can anyone remember this? Thanks.
I'm looking for a Snow White film, possibly made for TV. All I can remember is a montage of the very young Snow White being in the Dwarves' cottage, then growing older. She's still wearing the same dress, but she adds on fabric to make the sleeves and the skirt longer. Someone remarks on the several hem lines and added cuffs. It's not "Snow White: Fairest of Them All" or "Snow White: A Tale of Terror". Please help.
I am looking for a WWII film made in the 80's or 90's. It was about a bomber crew that was stranded in a desert with their crashed plane. Towards the end of the film it was revealed that they were all really ghosts and one crew member's remains are never discovered, leaving him in the desert alone. Thank you in advance.
