I am a fan of Midsomer Murders. I am trying to find the title of one of its episodes. In this episode Barnaby discovers that three children committed the murders. Before this discovery one of the children tries to strangle Barnaby.It then transpires that these children killed their own father years before. I would be grateful if someone would tell me what this episode is called.
I saw a movie recently on tv. It was a British or Irish movie and it had a young woman on it that worked in a bakery for her father and she had a friend that was dying and bedridden. Her dying friend had a video of the young woman singing but there was no sound. Her dying wish was to hear her friend sing. The young lady sang for her friend just before she died and at her funeral. Does anyone know the name of this movie?
I read that Cinderella was made into a movie 58 times. Does anyone know if this is a record? Or has something else been made more times?
I'm looking for the title of a movie from the 80's or maybe 90's. It seems to be set in the late 1800's or early 1900's and is about a unusually smart boy named Wendell. The only scene I'm certain about is when the boy gets off a train and is greeted by two older people. The man introduces himself and the lady as "Cornelia" and tells her Wendell's name. She says "Hello, Wendy." He replies, "Hello, Corny." She says (angrily) "Cornelia", he replies (exasperated) "Wendell." Thanks.Grumpy Scot
I am trying to identify a move that I saw on TV in the '80s. I don't remember much about it other than one scene. The movie takes place on another planet where the sun comes out only once every so many years. Children are playing, and one of them gets locked into a shed before the sun comes out. The child can feel and see the sun only through the slats of the shed. That's all I remember - this has been bothering me for YEARS. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I am trying to identify the title a certain movie I saw as a child in the early 80s that has been etched in my mind for its disturbing content. I only remember bits and pieces, but I seem to remember a hero similar to "He Man" (in dress) who has a ring (it may have had an eye on it) that allows him see events transpiring in different places. I remember a fiery temple of some sort where the villains were sacrificing kids (and maybe adults also). The hero is called to save the innocent victims. Does anyone have an idea as to what this movie is?
Being an Australian, I'm unsure about American phone numbers. In American movies/TV shows, I always notice that people's phone numbers are '555' followed by four digits, but if every American's phone number was that, then it would only allow for 10 000 phone numbers. Please fill me in.Blibbetyblip
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.
I saw this film that was made around the 70's or 80's. It was set in Africa, and in one scene there were two Africans children who fell into a tank of water which was on a truck. These children had never seen water before. In another scene the younger brother was out in the wild and he was approached by an animal which looked like a dog. The animal stood up and if it was taller than him it would attack him. The boy knew this so he grabbed the stick and put it on top of his head. The animal backed down. It was a comedy. What is this film called?gillian ahern
In American movies, I sometimes notice little flag shaped things on people's letterboxes, that can be moved up and down. In Australia, where I live, I've never noticed these, nor have I noticed them in countries I've visited (I haven't visited America). What is the purpose of these flag shaped things, and are they solely American?Blibbetyblip
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

Im trying to figure out the title to a movie I saw in the late 90's. A woman is sent on a mission in space and she is only person going. She gets sucked into a worm hole and ends up at a planet with a beach-like setting and she sees a ghost of her father as an alien form. Can anyone help me out? I would greatly appreciate it.

A TV series during the 70's and 80's. I think it's about two brothers. One is a dwarf, very smart and thinks like MacGuyver. In one episode he's driving a car from the back seat and the driver in front doesn't know how the car is driving itself. Another involves them climbing walls. Anyone recognise this show?gillian ahern
This film is about ants. It was made around the mid 80's/very early 90's. In one scene, there is construction going on around a few houses. One of the men thinks he knows where the ants are coming from. He gets a diggers and starts digging into the ground. As soon as he is into the ground, the ants start coming out from the ground. Towards the end of the film two of the men get trapped in a room by the ants; they roll up paper to use as an oxygen pipe and are told not to move.What is the name of this film?gillian ahern
I am looking for a film I saw about 20 years ago. I do not know the name of this film or any of the actors' names. There is a blond haired woman and a dark haired woman in this fim. The blond haired one seems to be a nice person who tries to reason all the time with the dark haired one who is not so nice. I remember the last scene where their house goes up in fire. The dark haired woman is trapped in it. The blond gets outside and with people around her looks up at the burning house. I think this film was made in the 60's. It is not "Rebecca."

In the last few scenes of the film, it shows that it is a doll's house. What is the name of this film?gillian ahern
