Thank you.

The mistress of a great house dozes in an overstuffed chair in a darkened room; a fire flickers in the fireplace?her husband?s cocker spaniel rests in her lap?a disgruntled servant peeks into the room and the dog peers up at her mistrustfully?

A woman is having a conversation with a hooded Spanish priest - and then she sees the edge of his sword underneath his robe.

TCM will air *The Lady From Shanghai* on Mon.

Two men walk their 10 paces and one fires before the command of fire is given. The father of the one who shoots first calls his son a coward and spits on him. It's the other mans turn to shoot and he shoots the ground instead of the other man. When he turns the son shoots at him. The father humiliated and filled with loathing for his son, winds up killing his son.

No, it's a famous scene from an Orson Welles movie, late '40s.

That one is intriguing, but I don't think I recognize it. Not *Mask*, is it?

Ok, so the next one is, we see a cripple guy walking with two crutches and he passes in front of multiple Fun House mirrors.

first that came to mind was Paul Muni from "I WAS A PRISONER ON A CHAIN GANG"

"A small elephant is not a rabbit."

Not *The Man Who Knew Too Much*. It was hard to clue up that question without using the name of the movie. It was *Ransom* (1996). The scene was pivitol, but brief. The father reluctuntly concluded
that the kidnappers were not going to return the child at all, so he went public with an offer that promised a high reward to anyone who exposed and named the kidnappers.

Now a new question is on the table, and I don't think I know it.

How about the last scene of a famous film where a guy on the run backs into the shadows of a dark alley near some parked cars and says to his girlfriend, "I steal!"

Thanks, cagney. Here's one:

The father of a kidnapped lad gets telephoned instructions where and when to deliver the payoff.
He gets an assurance that his son will be present, and will be turned over to him at that time..
At the arranged meeting the son is not there, the man he meets is obviously not the one he spoke to on the phone, and the man present knows nothing about having to surrounder the boy. The father aborts the payoff, and goes to an unusual Plan B.
