  1. This is one of my favorite movies of the 1990s: Kondom des Grauens (1996) I can not post the title in English because Mr. Otto Censor will asterisk it to oblivion. It is the word: "Killer" and the common term for a prophylactic popularly sold in U.S.A. by Trojan. I bring this to your attention as I am sure no other person will post of it as it was nominated for no awards in any category in any country in any year. This movie is such delightful trash! It is so very funny that I had to stop the DVD several times while I was watching it the first time because I was laughing so very hard I knew I would miss things if I did not pause to compose myself. It romps through virtually every gross joke concerning homosexuality and a certain part of male anatomy. Buried within the slime is vibrant commentary on sexual standards and mores. It creates the question as to which is more truly disgusting: the movie or society. It is not an easy answer. I watched also and liked: Irma Vep (1996). The Little Cat (1996) is quite delightful little movie. I do not know if it would make sense to most people here but it is a precious little thing which I encourage all to watch if it is available.

    Season Two through Season Six are available on tubi: https://tubitv.com/series/2120/the_avengers It is so many years since I have watched Season One that I remember virtually none of it. I have read that John Steed was more of a companion than the lead during that season and that Dr. David Keel was the focus. Some of IMDB.com's descriptions of the episodes seem to support this.

    Nancy Drew: Detective (1938) has Ted Nickerson in drag as a nurse. Nancy Drew... Reporter (1939) has Police Sgt. Entwhistle in drag as an old woman. Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase (1939) has Ted Nickerson in drag as a woman with a feathery hat. I must remember to look with great care the next time I watch: Nancy Drew... Trouble Shooter (1939) to see if I can spot the crossdresser. I believe it must be an extra as I remember no character who is one.

    I remember reading once that a lip reader watching a silent movie stated than an actress spent much of the time complaining about her plumber and another was giving stage directions and stating when he was going to grab some person's hand. I do not know how common it was for them to do that.

    Pregnant and showing in 1952!

    I assume by this that you are a fan of: Bimisi Tayanita and his 2016 illustrated book: Brenda's Beaver Needs a Barber. I will not post a link to this charming little missive but I believe scans of all pages can be found on Imgur.

  7. It is difficult for me to parse which movies I like are from 1993 as we lost our database of movies in the transition to Windows10 and have not yet built a new one. I suppose my favorite of the year is: Island of the Dead (1993) as it is a wonderful tribute to: Vera Kholodnaya who was the greatest actress of all time. I like very much also: Killing Zoe (1993) because it is one of the most honest movies which I have ever watched. It neither glorifies nor demonizes criminals or criminal acts. It shows that criminals are like all other people with personal baggage which they bring to their activities. The criminal activity merely increases the amount of adrenaline and therefore the intensity. I looked at a list of 1993 movies on IMDB.com and I recognized these titles as one which I have watched and liked: Stolen Spring (1993) The Vampire Wedding (1993) Living with an Idiot (1993) Window to Paris (1993) The Heart of the Mother (1993) Predskazaniye (1993) Head Above Water (1993)
  8. A movie which won no awards and is rarely on any lists of recommended movies to watch is: Sny (1993). I like it very much because of the depictions of how different people cope with the concept of time travel in dreams. The overarching message of enormity of the fall from the elegance of the past to the crudity of the present is heavy-handed but it does fit the time of the movie when it was often necessary to actually hit people over the head in order to make them aware of important concepts. This was Amaliya Mordvinova's first movie and so her style has not yet gelled but she is quite fun to watch in maintaining one character in two different roles in life.

    You requested a Moroni Olsen. Whatever that is . . .

    This reminds me strongly of this: https://imgur.com/gallery/J5sbp It is a story page concerning a Japanese girl who is born with pink hair. Pink hair in anime signifies being a main character and/or the hero of the story. She rebels against this and does not want to be a hero. I know few of the tropes of anime but it was very clearly a wild parody.

    In: How to Steal a Million (1966): I love this car very much! It would be wonderful for scooting around in traffic. It is listed as: Autobianchi Eden Roc (1965)

    That is the cropped image which appears in a meme with the tag: "Apparently there is a new choice next to a burial or cremation." I have tried to trace the image to its source but have sadly been unsuccessful. I am still hoping that it was in a movie.

    I believe that it is at all times a fairly good bet that I am being cheeky to some extent.

    I am truly of two minds concerning it. I first thought and accepted it as a simple photograph. Later thought has led to questions because the image quality is what one might expect of a screen-capture of a good freeze-frame of a movie playing on a computer. It is also that the hearse is slightly atypical in being so tall. I have seen similar used only for prominent people where the procession is a part of the public viewing. It seems incongruous to have such an aloof vehicle towing a chipper through the countryside. It seems to me odd that a hearse would even be fitted with a towing hitch. It might fit well into the plot of a movie. I truly would be more comfortable if this was an image from a movie rather than a real thing.

    I have searched images of that movie and can find no similar scenes. It is also that the wood chipper seems to be of a different design and the model of hearse is not represented. It is quite possible that my Google-Fu is letting me down miserably. I can think of no other movie which it might be.
