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.
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.Brian Katcher
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.
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.Greg Dwyer
What's the movie? 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.Cat Nell
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.Given2fly
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.daisy2351
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.
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.Thais Circelli Ok
Looking for the name of a movie. A middle aged man sits at table in bar holding forth with various customers and the bartender. He orders champagne, at one point a young man plays a piano and sings. It was like a play that was filmed; may have been black and white, but I'm not sure. There were a lot of profile shots of the man at the table. Thank you.Guest
A friend is trying to identify which Western this quote comes from: "If I could find the man who taught you those tricks, I'd shake him by the hand and then shoot him like a dog." He has just spent the night with a woman and this is his quote in the morning.Jon Sandys
What is the name of a movie (or serial) where the bad guys threaten Earth by cloning the sun. I recall stock footage of mobs of people fleeing in terror (presumably to jump into a body of water not yet boiling). Not to be confused with Republic serial where the bad guys were able to dim our sun and freeze the Earth. Any help much appreciated.
I remember an animated (I think) TV series about a guy and his sister who try and find their mother. The main enemy was a bald woman. It also was about flying ships and dogfights aplenty. The last thing I remember is that they join a group of people on what looks like an old 19th century ship. Can someone please tell me what this is called?Dra9onBorn117
I'm looking for a movie from years ago that has a scene where a truck driver makes a scared woman take her clothes off. Might be from mid '80's.sck666
There was a movie about an older man who had fallen in love with teenager. However, the girl doesn't love him back and he becomes so angry that he uses astral projection to torment her and kill her friends. The more the guy uses astral projection, the more hideous his appearance. The girl then turns to a teenage guy for help. The movie ends with her friend getting killed and his astral form killing the man. When she tells the police what happened, they don't believe her and place her under arrest for killing the man. Bridgette Nielsen had a cameo appearance in it as a librarian.
