There was a movie I saw maybe in the 80's. It was about a boy who ends up with some pirates that travel to different planets. During the movie the captain's crew is getting killed by several enemies. The captain is seriously injured so the boy takes some tools to save the captain's life. The movie ends with the captain living and either leaving the kid on another planet or returning him to his home planet.
I am searching for the name of an old comedy, I believe, possibly black and white I saw as a child. Part of the story centers around a woman trying to lure a man to marry her. To do so she refuses to take off her white gloves until he becomes so obsessed with what is beneath them he marries her.jackrabbit1313
I'm trying to identify a movie I saw in the 1960s or 70s. A girl's mother is trying to make her think she's crazy. There's a scene where she sees her dead father's body in her playhouse and she runs away through the woods. A hand reaches out from leaves on the path and grabs her ankle. Freaked me out as a child and I'd like to see it again.lyleo
I am after the name of a movie where a woman goes through a day trying to escape people after her. In the end it turns out the whole town has been acting to scare her. In the end she is tied to a chair and we find out she murdered a child and as punishment she receives an injection at the end of each day and when she wakes up she has to relive the same traumatic day again. I have searched everywhere for this movie.deniseward
I'm looking for the title of a movie about a man who murdered his wife, and seemingly got away with it, but a woman is pretending to be his living wife and all of their friends and family say the the impostor really is his wife. Not sure if it was made for TV or not.
There was this film I watched a few years ago that isn't very well known. I do not know any of the actors in it, but it's about this new girl at this school who comes between two best friends. The new girl is obsessed with one of them, so she invites the other one to a fake party with them and when they get to a warehouse, she murders the girl so that her and the girl she's obsessed with can be best friends. Stabs her. The other girl who the killer is obsessed with wants to tell the dead girl's parents but she's being forced not to, so the dead girl's mother investigates and ins out herself. Does anyone know what this film is called?kira250
Please help me remember the name of this movie. It is from the 1980s, possibly the early 1990s. A teenage girl, maybe college student, is following newspaper stories about a criminal and fantasizes about him. I am mostly sure that the girl is blonde. I remember a scene where she is in her house's kitchen. Her stepfather/mother's boyfriend makes romantic advances. There is an implication that he has sexually abused her, or that she willingly slept with him before, but regrets it.
I'm looking for a Christmas film that starts out with a boy noticing that one of the reindeer in the Christmas lights is missing. The film ends something along the lines of a group of people rescuing the missing reindeer from a pound in a pick up truck. I think it dates from the late 90s to the early 2000's.
I'm trying to remember a black/white film where a man is diagnosed to live only several months. He decides to make a worthwhile time of it, and leads a happy life only to find out he is not mortally ill cause there was a mix-up, only to die in an accident.
A movie with a gang of black kids - one of them shot some people, it might have been by accident. The kid was still in school and he liked his teacher - his teacher thought he was a great student but he couldn't go on the class field trip with them because of what he did. I can't remember the movie. It's a pretty old movie, maybe around 1990's.
I just cannot remember the name of this film. I believe it begins with a boy coming out of school, observed by a shadowy figure in a fedora hat. The boy attends the funeral of his father and again the shadowy figure is watching. He lives with his pregnant mother and stepfather (works on the trains). The shadowy figure turns up at their house and it is his father, who's not dead. At some point the boy and mother go to his teacher's house where she lends him a camera of her deceased husband. Boy goes off with father (and possibly newborn sibling) and father is chased by police (I think). They stay in a deserted warehouse (possibly down in London). Eventually he returns home to mother, and I think the film ends with the boy going to the cinema to see a film. I think it was set in the 1940s, and definitely in Britain. Please help!
I am looking for a movie of which I remember very little. In the climax, an old man poisons his victim but before dying, the victim manages to take a photo of himself. The murderer then stuffs the body in a wardrobe. He is caught when his photos are developed.
I'm trying to figure out what a movie is that I watched as a child. It looked like it was a 60's maybe 70's movie. A woman starts rolling around in brown stuff and bubbly foam stuff that is gushing out of the walls filling what looks like a round living room.
There was a black-and-white comedy movie about a man and a woman who believe that they are brother and sister. One of the constant running gags in the movie is how the man discovers and constantly tries to tell people that there are 13 dead bodies in the cellar. The end of the movie has the woman trying to tell the man the same thing but he informs her that she isn't really his sister. They drive off together while a cop at the house shouts after them that he's a little teapot.
There was a movie about a black man who was accused of murder. He gets two separate trials but both of his trials end with him being found guilty because all jury members at both trials were all white. While in prison he refuses to wear striped prison clothes or have a prison number. The warden eventually gives him some white pajamas to wear with no prison number.
I am looking for a Christmas movie where the mother is dead and the father is a radio producer in a small town, where they all lost the Christmas spirit, and the young daughter sings on the radio and brings back the Christmas spirit.
I'm looking for a movie that I used to watch when I was a kid, probably mid 1990's. I believe it's about two girls who are best friends - they both go to this cave near the ocean and one of the girls gets her foot caught under a big rock and can't move. The tide is coming in so the girl almost drowns, but the girl's best friend comes and brings help.
