Question: Old Maid movie - I watched this movie about ten years ago. I think it's based around 1900 - 1970. It starts in a school where they are writing with quills and the main character gets bullied. Later on after the girl leaves school she works as a maid in a large house. Her job goes well here until the bully gets a job there and frames the girl for stealing a coin she found while cleaning. The girl gets a job at a factory and later on the bully does does too, though she acts nicer. Later on the girl marries a rich man and has children. Later on the girl and her children encounter the beggar whom the girl ignores. One of the girl's daughters runs in front of a horse and cart and is saved by the beggar/bully. Both characters are female. I appreciate any help. Thank you.
Question: I don't know the title or who was in it but I was very young when I saw it in the early 2000s, before 2004. It was either a movie or series episode about a woman who was married - I can't remember if she and her husband were kidnapped but I know that she was. In the movie she was raped a lot by two captors - then when they are trying to escape, a car chase ensues and it ends with the man that she has fallen "in love" with dying from a gunshot wound and her getting returned with or back to her husband. But then she actually wakes up in the night and says her captor's name due to Stockholm Syndrome, that I believe she gets during the brutal kidnapping. What is this movie called, please?
Question: I can't remember much about this film, but I remember being a child around late 90s or early 00s (it's all a blur) and seeing what I believe was a scary movie. The movie (I think) consisted of a male and a female who fall in love? I feel like I remember them getting off some form of public transportation and later making out in the grass. I believe the movie ended with a piece of paper with a large question mark written on it. Or something else. I've really been trying to find it, but because it was so long ago I feel my memories may be jumbled. Thank you.
Question: The movie I'm trying to remember has a scene with a mother grieving for her daughter who died (approx age of child is 7-10). The mother keeps the child's room just as it was when she died and sits in it daily. It has a window overlooking a yard and a huge tree and one day the mother sees the child standing next to the tree. She raced downstairs to see her daughter only to find her gone. I can't tell you what year it was or even narrow it down to a decade other than it was before 1980.
Question: I'm trying to remember the name of a movie that keeps popping up in my head. The only problem is that all I remember is a lady getting kidnapped by a man somewhere near a train, and towards the end he stabs her with a nail or bolt. He keeps her in a van. This movie was between the years of 1980 and 1995?
Question: I will be surprised if someone can tell me the title of this movie, I remember one minor scene and it's driving me nuts. The scene involves a military transport jeep with the antagonist and a few characters. The characters get out of the truck and are with a female military person. He gives her a chance to run before he shoots her, and she runs for the trees. However he pulls out his gun and shoots her from afar, and she collapses in the distance once he shoots her. The setting is maybe a forest, I just remember trees and plants/bushes.
Question: I'm looking for a black and white film I saw on TV as a child (maybe in the 70s). It had parents whose 2 or 3 year old daughter (blond, curly hair) was kidnapped while playing with water outside and, I think, never found, but possibly shown at the end to the audience to be in a children's home?
Question: The movie I'm looking for is a movie for kids. It's two kids from opposite camps or teams that are in love and there is a weird guy who is trying to hide a bear, who's living in the forest near the camp, to protect it. The kids discover the bear and try to help the guy. I think the movie is from around 1995.
Question: There is a film I watched a couple of years ago, I don't have a clue what the name is or what the characters were called. The film is based on this girl who is about 13, this boy fancies her but she doesn't like him back, at one point she hurts her leg during a PE class - I think and he tries to help by massaging it but she either hurts him or has a go at him for it. In the film he drowns, I think in a lake, and he might have tried to save the person he was swimming with. At the boy's funeral he has an open casket and the girl looks in and sees him holding either something that is a keepsake from one of their meetings or a picture of her. I really want to watch it again and it's been bugging me for years.
Question: I am looking for a movie which I watched as a kid in the 90's. It starts with a girl getting off a school bus and walks to her house. She walks in and sees her mother being stabbed to death. The girl runs away and in to the forest where the killer runs after her. She manages to get away but loses her memory. She grows up and as an adult starts remembering what happened. I really want to know what this movie is called.
Question: This horror/mystery/supernatural movie is from the 60's or 70's and all I can remember is that a family moves into or inherits a grand manor with an over grown pool. There is a man who is missing his legs and lives under the sinks - uses secret tunnels to traverse the manor on a wheeled board.
Question: I'm looking for a movie about a little girl, her older brother and her mother who were about to travel to somewhere or maybe return to the U.S. While at the airport the little girl's doll was mixed up with a similar doll filled with diamonds. The mother was arrested at the airport, and the little girl and her brother were on the run from the thieves who owned the diamond filled doll, I believe they were running from the thieves in Mexico. Most of this movie detail may not be accurate but that's how I remember it, and also this movie is not "The Child Glass."movieloo
Question: Looking for the title of a animated movie, I remember watching it on the movie network years ago (15+), and it was really quite funny. From what I can remember it was animated, and it was about a bunch of kids, they were rather vulgar and it was a R rated comedy-like movie for adults. I thought it was called The Kid, but i can't find it anywhere online. Keeps coming up with the Disney movie, and its DEFINITELY not a Disney movie. There's one line that stands out for me it goes something like this: "Beware of he who F*cketh, for the time and the tide, by thou thyselves be f*cked in double measure up the a*s, thou ignoble f*ckhead" I would LOVE to find it and watch it. I'm wondering if it was an independent film or something and that's why it's so difficult to find, but if anyone knows the movie I'm referring to, I would greatly appreciate the help.Beckstenupholus
Question: Not sure of the name of a movie. It's about a group of girlfriends that go to see one of their friends. They find out that their friend is in an abusive relationship. I do remember one scene that might help a little more. On their way to see their girlfriend they tease a cop or maybe some random by pretending they are taking off their undies, but really they have a glove box full of undies and they throw their spare undies to the guy.Bunny054
Question: I am looking for a foreign film about a woman who lets a stranger who is also a woman live with her while her husband went off to war, I believe. I just remember at the end of the film the stranger kills the woman and takes her child. The husband comes back from war to find his wife dead in a tent outside of there home. The movie ends with the stranger woman on a boat with the child. I would like to know the name of this film.lismcy
Question: I'm trying to remember the name of a movie from the late 70s that I saw while I was in a Children's hospital here in Nova Scotia, Canada back in 1978. I believe it was a TV Movie, probably on CBC or CTV. It was about a white cobweb or some sort of white substance that spread and no one could touch it or they would get sick or hurt. I believe the setting was a cabin in the woods type setting(centered around a family), with a lake, canoes.etc. I remember there is a point in the movie where they think they have gotten rid of the white substance but then it comes back as part of the anti-climax of the movie. It haunts me to this day. Would really love to find out what it was called.
Question: I'm looking for the title of an classic animation movie about people living in a space consisting only of clouds, with no gravity, and the people travel using aircraft. The story is about a young boy who got trained to be a soldier, wearing a glider suit to movie about the clouds, and then later on met a professor and helped him build a jet engine which he used to power a jet plane to fight against a giant robotic monster that was apparently also a creation of the professor. The story is a little blurry, but that's all the information I have.
Question: I only remember bits of the trailer for this British film of the 60's or 70's (?). It's an espionage or a possible spy spoof that starts by showing a man running down a street wearing a formal British teacher's robes (like "Mr. Chip's"). A voice-over says, "See this man? Very good. Carry on." He is then in a classroom with all beautiful college-age girl students. He asks a question to the class and then, after they answer, he exclaims, "Right, my children!" He then asks one girl a question up close, to which she replies the teacher's name, which spells out on the screen, AND is also the name of the film. Any help here?
