Old classical movie: what's the name of the movie where a teen girl goes rich, is taken to buy new clothes, etc? When I was a kid I watched this movie sometimes, but now can't remember the name or the exact plot. It was a young girl or teenager who finds out she inherits a lot of money, or is the daughter of a rich man, something in those lines. She is taken to go shopping by a zealous woman who takes care of her. They go to a store and she tries out new clothes while the older woman tells her what to do, how to act, etc.This movie might be black & white, I can't remember. I used to watch many Julie Andrews movies, so I searched for Julie Andrews but couldn't find anything linked to her.What's the name of the movie?
Late 80s movie. Fantasy genre? Cigar-smoking men in suits seem to need them to survive. At some point, one of them is "executed". He climbs onto some place, for his trial or something. His cigar is removed from him, and then he looks down. The floor is full of cigar butts. He starts to disappear when the cigar is removed from him. It seems that these pale men in suits were after children, specifically a girl and a couple of friends. I recall a trunk popping open with toys in it. There is some "amphitheater" in the movie (that's where I learned the word). Probably the children were running away and going to hide in it.It's not "Bugsy" or "City of Lost Children" Could be some obscure B movie? European? I did watch it in a normal theater, for what it's email@example.com
I am looking for a movie title I saw in the late 1980s. It is about a man who has escaped from an insane asylum. He is accused of being a pathological liar, but it turns out everything he has said is true. I think it ends showing him leaving town on a bus, and I think it might start with him arriving in town on a bus. Can anyone help me with the title to this film?barsoon
I cannot remember much of this movie but I loved it as a kid. It might have been a 90s movie. I don't think it had any popular actors in it either. It's about a young girl who was kept in a shed by her dad for most of her life. I believe she was mute because of it. Some kids found the girl and sneaked her out with them a few times. The girl and her mother were abused. That is all I know. I hope someone can help. This has been bugging me for months. :) Thank you.
Trying to remember the film name. I remember a film where a woman is in an abusive relationship and at one point she's taken out on a fishing boat and she's chucked into the river with her feet in a bucket of cement (or it may be chains). She's saved by the police, I think. (They may have been bad?) Also, she looked to her male neighbor for help, who also turned out to be bad, I think! I remember the scene where it's a field near the water, and there's a dock. Sorry, it's all I remember.cementlover
I watched half of a movie; it was kind of a dark comedy. It had an English setting and characters, about a house that hired an English nanny or maid, and she had this large old luggage trunk. The movie constantly implied that she had a body hidden in it, but since I never saw the end, I never got to find out!
Hi, I'm looking for a foreign film (I think) about two teenage girls who become friends. One is rich and promiscuous and the other is poor. The poor girl sleeps with an older man, and her brother (or dad, I don't remember well) is a drunk, but he turns religious and says he's saved. The rich and the poor girl become involved romantically but the rich one is only playing with her while the poor one I think does fall for her. At the beginning, the poor girl uses this beat up motorized scooter and that's how she gets around the desolated city. The father of the rich girl cheats on her mom and they follow him one time to where he's sleeping with the mistress. It might be French; not sure.
I saw a movie quite a few years ago now, I think it was a TV movie. It was about a girl who was raped on her way home from work (waitressing, I think) and became pregnant, I think her father didn't believe it and thought she was just a slut. A guy who she liked started seeing her, feeling pity for her and they married. I believe they went on to have another child. After tests to find a donor match when one of the kids falls sick, it transpires that her husband is the person who raped her years earlier. I'm sure she has a children's book published near the end of the movie, something along the lines of 'the magic quilt'. Can anyone help with a title?Purple_Girl
I am trying to find a name of a movie in the late 80's possibly early 90's with a little girl who doesn't talk to anyone and isn't allowed to have toys. She has a nanny, the nanny makes her a doll with button eyes and the little girl then only talk to the nanny and the doll. The nanny has a boyfriend who wants to marry her. In the end the nanny steals the girl.
I am looking for the title of a movie. I watched it on Lifetime and I remember some of the details. There are 2 girls. One of them becomes friends with the other. One of them had a sister, who had a disease that lead to mental illness. The sister was killing people so the dad had to kill her with a rock in a shed. The one who had the sister is now being possessed by the sister and doing the same things as her. She tries to take peoples things and if they say no she harms and kills them. The other girl finds a victim tied up in the shed which is covered with oil. She helps her and they try to escape but the door is jammed. It starts to catch on fire when the dad saves them. I think it was from around 2009 or 2010 but I'm not sure.
A clothed man is running on a beach being chased by huge balls. They seem to be giant inflatable balls, all yellow, with evil purpose. He is older and not athletic and I have the image of Peter Davison which makes me think its from a Doctor Who episode. I've searched every Doctor Who episode though and cannot find the scene. Does anyone know what episode or movie this is from?
There was a cartoon, I don't remember what channel, that was on during the 90s (I think) about a detective or an inspector who's last name was Watermelon. I cannot for the life of me remember what the show was called. I've Googled every keyword I can think of but I can't find it.THGhost
80's or 90's movie that starts with a girl crossing the street and there is a man in a car checking her out, her dress blows up and her underwear say something (i love you), he thinks she's beautiful. Later in the movie she changes her looks to a more crazy punk look and I think it's because she's hiding from someone. This guy ends up helping her somehow and falling for her. I remember they are climbing a ladder to get away from someone and he sees he underwear and realizes she's the girl he saw before and thought she was beautiful.
I am trying to remember a film that I think takes place at a summer camp (or at least some place with lot of kids). In it there is a scene where several boys fake a groin injury so the attractive female nurse will touch them.LorgSkyegon
Saw a movie in the late 90's or in the early 2000's. An adventure about an elder man and a kid (maybe two kids) that finds or are in possession of something - a book or medallion or something that made things from the past appear in their time. I remember lions and a hunter chasing them with bad intents. A lot of other things chased them as well, but I remembered those things specifically. I only remember one particular scene which involves the hunter entering a weapons shop trying to buy ammunition for his old rifle, and the clerk clarifies that the round the hunter displays has not been for sale in a long time.Sweden

Then there is a blonde short haired women who is his student and has got a crush on him. She sees him in the bar and starts to hit on him in class. He refuses.
