Question: I am trying to identify a movie I saw on TV in the very early 70's. The movie was older and may have been in black & white. A worldly young man was having a relationship with an innocent girl. During the movie, he became sweeter while she became more entranced by the "dark" side. A pivotal scene was a cock-fight which she now enjoyed more than he did.
Question: A japanese language film, english subtitles shown in U.K. sometime in nineties.I seem to think one New Years Eve. It is a long film, possibly three hours. Set in medieval Japan featuring a Samurai family involved in a feud and I remember something about a burning town/village. The film was not the Seven Samurai/Akiro Kurosawa. If anyone can remember this film and can give me the title I would be very grateful.
Question: I am wondering about a film, or some kind of TV series, I don't know what it is. It's a boy and a girl and they are wearing clothes from the 18th or 19th century (eg; the boy has a low ponytail, the girl has those typical corkscrews in her hair.) She seems to be quite wealthy. The scenes I remember is one when she is sitting on a swing which is attached to a large tree, and he jumps down from the tree, starting to chase her around. They are both quite giggly and she falls down, the boy falls on top of her and he kisses her. Someone sees them, I think it's some kind of servant to her father, and the boy gets whipped. It's all I remember, does anyone know which movie / TV series this is?
Question: I remember awhile ago watching an Anime show which involved aliens or some kind of giant humans invading earth and people going into shelter to avoid them. All I really remember is the main hero using a sort of red armor and the main heroine in the series premier being a little girl who's lost her diary and is upset. When she later grows up, it shows a long-dead alien clutching her diary. Anybody know what this show was called?
Question: I am looking for the title of a movie, made in the 1970's or 80's- I just remember the end or near the end: A girl about 13 and her younger brother are alone in a cabin in a blizzard, and a bad man that has been after them before breaks down the door, waving a rifle, and takes them prisoner. I remember he says something like: "My big toe froze off, I thought it was a road apple" He beats the girl up, then the boy hits him and he chases the boy outside to a shed, where the boy burns it and the bad guy, saving himself and his sister. I think that was the ending. Can anyone tell me the name of this, or any of the actors?
Question: I am looking for any info on a war movie from the late sixties or early seventies. It featured two soldiers being sent to an island to fight the war for their country one on one with the winner transmitting a code back to declare victory. I don't think they took weapons with them but I am not sure. It was more of guerrila war as I do remember the Japanese soldier putting razor blades in a tree trunk laced with bacteria for the American to cut himself on. At one point in the film each country sends another soldier in to help fight, a form of cheating. The original combatants kill their comrades out of respect for each other and the integrity of fight.
Question: Are the contestants on Wheel of Fortune encouraged to buy vowels? It seems like as soon as someone gets some money they immediately start buying vowels.
Question: This was a movie from the 1970s: I was only a little kid when I saw it. The only scene I remember is a woman who was going to be sacrificed in some kind of Southwest American Indian ceremony. It was filmed in a desert area with canyons and cliffs, and was set in pre-modern times. There was a part where they covered the face of the victim so that they couldn't see. Ring any bells?
Question: I'm trying to find the title to a film I saw on television in the early 80's. A crazy young woman lives alone in a remote unpopulated area. A man (possibly a local authority) drives his truck to her house once in a while to check on her. The woman seems to have the mind of a child and her interactions are awkward and somehow threatening. There are a lot of long uneasy silences. At the end, the woman is walking around outside in just panties and shirt. The title was something like "The Madness of Emily" or "The Psychosis of Sara" or "The Neurosis of Ana Rose". I can't remember the actual name. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Question: I am looking for a particular LoonyTunes short. It might be on one of the various "Loony Tunes Gold" DVD collections. Unfortunately I have no idea what the title is. I have looked online at the titles on the different sets, but I find a few titles that might be it, or might not. If anyone knows the title, and hopefully what, if any, DVD set it is on, I would really appreciate it. The story is a 20th century continuation of the story of the Shoemaker and the Elves. Elmer Fudd is the King of the Elves, and he wants the elves working for the shoemaker back. The shoemaker doesn't know how he will run his business without the elves. So Elmer tells him about automation and industrialization along with some basic economics. Also when the elves hear the word "Jehoshaphat" they start to change into mice, until they say the word, "Rumplestiltskin"
Question: I remember watching a movie when I was younger, and was wondering what it was called. It was about an American female baseball (I believe) team, and I think they may have been the first such team. I remember they travelled America in a bus, and at one point one of the women received a letter telling her her husband had died in a war. Also one of them, or one of the people they travelled with had a son, and many years later there was a display at a museum or stadium about them and the boy was there, but grown up and they fussed over him.
Question: The movie i would like info on was made between 1985 & 1987 at a guess. I was young when i watched it and my memory of this movie is quite vague. The movie was set during world war 2 and featured aliens or creatures of some kind? If my memory serves me right, these creatures were helping the soldiers? Could anyone shed some light on this movie please?
Question: This is a b/w film, late 50's: a small group of people is in everglades-type surrounds. One gets attacked by a huge snapping turtle, one has to climb a tree to get away from an alligator, but the best part is a guy gets an earwig in his ear, goes into a fever, and after several days the earwig comes out of his ear. But he's told that it was a female and had laid eggs in his head. This was a movie, not a tv show. Any help please.ramjet
Question: I've been trying to find a title of a movie. Cars and clothing along with grade of picture and sets, couldn't set the movie more than mid-60's to late 70's. It's titled Arthur or Arnold I believe, that's where my problem comes in, but it's where he has recently departed and left a will for his new wife and family, but they're all on audio tapes and he keeps giving them clues about where his fortune is. I know his body keeps getting moved, and that a shower literally collapses on a couple. At the end his sister is moving the body, and she's the only one to live through a carefully constructed plan between the departed and his sister. I know she finds the money at the end behind his casket or something, but a stone door closes and an audio tape of his voice comes on telling her she's trapped, fade out. Thanks if you know.
