    Movie Title Help

    Aloha! I am trying to remember the title of a film that Robert Osborne lauded as a favorite many years ago. The film takes place after WWII, somewhere in Eastern Europe that was occupied by American troops, but would eventually become part of the Eastern Bloc. I am thinking Hungary, Czechoslovakia or Germany. The film was shot on location and there was an excellent performance by a child actor who came under the wing of a GI. I remember vividly Robert Osborne's sharing the fate of the young actor, who faced persecution once the communist regime had solidified power in the country. I believe the film is in black and white, was produced in the late 1940s and had amazing scenes of the destruction caused by the war. Help, sorry for being so vague! Mahalo
  2. Story of Women, Une Affaire de Femmes, is a Claude Chabrol film based on a true story about the last woman in France to be guillotined. Her name was Marie- Louise Giraud. Her crime was being an abortionist. Under the pro-Nazi French collaborationist government - - stationed at Vichy--abortion was a capital offense. Mme. Giraud was a poor wife and mother, with two small children in Cherbourg, who had a hard time making ends meet during the occupation of France. Like many French women, her husband was in a German prisoner camp. Barely getting by doing domestic work, she starts to help pregnant friends and neighbors by giving them abortions. Soon the demand is so great that she charges money for the service. Her husband returns from Germany and subsequently turns her over to the pro-Nazi French authorities. She's found guilty by a judicial jury and is sentenced to be guillotined. Isabelle Huppert, portrayed Marie-Louise Giraud, won the Venice Film Festival 1988 Best Actress Award for her role in Une Affaire de Femmes. One of the greatest actresses in the world of Cinema, Isabelle Huppert's crowning achievement is her portrayal of Emma Bovary in Claude Chabrol's Madame Bovary for which she won Best Actress at the Moscow International Film Festival in 1991.

    name that movie...

    Looking for the name of a movie shown on TCM years ago - involves a WWII flight crew sent back to the US for a bond tour. The manager assigned to them turns out to be a woman, she and one of the men (the pilot?) of course end up falling in love. Unfortunately, by the end of the movie it's revealed he's sick and doesn't have long to live. He tips his airplane wings at her in greeting when flying overhead. One of the crewmembers has a wooden leg. Wish I could remember more of this so as to give a better description, but I remember loving the movie and would like to find it to rewatch it. Thank you for any info provided!
  4. I have a difficult one for my fellow movie buffs. When I was quite young, I enjoyed a movie that I barely remember, but really would like to rediscover. The things I remember: - blonde British operative - passenger train scene (he was sleeping? or coming to? or bedding a girl? or all three?) - he's activated on the train somehow? - WWII (possibly) or Cold War? - colour film - filmed in the 60's? ish? Yes, that's all I've got. For some reason my adult-self sees David McCallum as the operative, but I don't think it was a Man from U.N.C.L.E. film (unless this strikes a cord with someone who is familiar with the films?). I have such an embarrassingly terrible memory and it kind of makes me sad! Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU in advance!
