Looking for a movie about a group of scientists who let a griffin lose who chases them through the seven wonders of the world as they are trying to save the head scientist who disappeared. Any ideas?

Name of a movie made in the 50's or 60's where a boyfriend proposes to his girlfriend in front of a jewelry store after hours. He asks her if she sees a ring she likes and then pops the question. That may not be enough information, but I would be grateful if anyone has a clue or guess to the name of this movie.

What is the name of a movie about 3 siblings? After spend some years in a psychiatric hospital, the oldest daughter knows that parents are abusing her little brother and sister, comes back and killed both of her parents in their bed by cutting them into pieces. She tried to hide the body, but a hand is found.

Looking for a made-for-TV Western movie (1980's-ish), light drama with a young Sheriff or lawman called (I think) "Longarm" or they called him that. (*No, this is NOT the name of the movie...I checked that already). He's traveling on the road with a young woman his age and a precocious 10-year-old girl who's always mouthing off to him. They're on the road together and he needs to get to a certain town so he can get something done there. Don't remember any of the actors' names.

Korean (Asian) Romance/Drama movie (adult themes) I saw this a LONG while back and haven't been able to find it since. It's about a wife who gets bored at home because her husband is always out. She somehow meets a woman who encourages her to join the world of prostitution, which she slowly does. She gains confidence the more she takes part in it with that woman (who is probably a bit out of her mind) pushing her along the way. I think at one point she sleeps with a guy in a store? I also remember the "pimp" wore very pimpish clothes. Huge hat, cane, cape, all that. The ending is what I remember the most. The wife gets caught by her husband/she catches her husband at the brothel, whereupon we learn the woman who was encouraging the wife to work at the brothel had actually been sleeping with the husband, as he is a regular. This conversation happens while the husband at that woman are having sex and she is choking him. There's also I believe a scene where she gets kicked out and begins to bang on the door hysterically, angrily demanding the money she is owed from the husband. I hope that's enough to help. I've searched a lot and can't find it.

A quote stuck in my head and I cannot remember whether it was from a TV show or a movie! Anyway, there is a couple and one of them (I think the woman) asks the other why he (/she) doesn't love her (/him) and if it's because she (/he) can't hurt him (/her) OR break his (/her) heart, like the "third person."

I am not sure if this was from a movie or TV show and my memory is a little vague. There was a girl riding on her skateboard and a van pulls up and she gets abducted. Later, the girl is sitting in a chair and there is a man (villain, I'm guessing) and he is putting leads on her temples, like when they measure brain activity, and he licks her cheek to make it stick. It was kind of like he was trying to brainwash her or something. He also has women working for him, no sure if they are robots or something. That is pretty much all I've got and it's driving me crazy!

I'm looking for the title of a movie that I've seen in the 80's. A young brainwashed adult woman leave her parents' house to go live in a sect with her boyfriend. At the end of the movie, her father is finally able to take her back home by using force (a kind of kidnapping). Another clue, somewhere during the movie everyone holds each other's hand and sing He's got the whole world in his hands. Thanks for your help.

Don't know if this was a movie or TV show, but there is one scene that keeps going through my mind. A woman is forced into her best friend's apartment by a masked robber who tells the woman to give him everything valuable or her friend will die. The woman doesn't believe that she's being robbed but that it's just a practical joke that her friend is playing on her. She then takes the gun from the robber and puts it to her head thinking it's either a toy or that it isn't really loaded. The robber and the woman he is holding hostage are both shocked at this and they both try to tell the woman that it isn't a joke, but, the woman pulls the trigger anyway and kills herself.

What film is this quote from? "You answer the questions and he gets the girl"? Or something along those lines? Thanks.

What's the movie where a woman's husband hits her - she cheats on him and he catches her. He has a motorcycle accident, and then she visits his parents, in a yellow or orange van?

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.

I don't know if this is a TV show or a movie, but I know that there is a kid who gets in trouble or similar, and has to become another kid's tutor. The tutor goes to the kids house and eventually gets together with the kid's sister, I think?

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.

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.

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?

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.

I'm looking for the name of a movie (possibly TV show) that aired in the 90s. It may have been a direct to TV affair. It possibly was a movie my parents rented and I only caught glimpses of. In it, a man's wife and son are in the final stages of moving out and leaving him. He jokingly jump scares the wife or something. The wife is scared and fed up with the man. We see them leave with their stuff in the car and he's looking at them leave, sad and lonely. Later, we see this man talking with another man in a cellar or basement. For whatever reason, the other man is killed by the father by having bugs crawl across his face - somehow. The father callously left the man to die. Anyone help me out on this? It's been bugging me most of my life, what the movie was and what was wrong with the dad.

A movie I watched many years ago about two women playing piano duets together in performances and very successful but with husbands/partners who were not so happy about it. Does anyone know the title please?
