hitchcock_starlet posted a topic in Information, Please!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!
When I was a boy in the 1960's I watched two films, which have left fragments in my mind. I think the first film is Italian, probably in the genre of neo realism. A dark-haired man is locked inside the freezing room by an accident. The other man doesn't know about the man inside. The second film is part war film, part fantasy film. I remember two scenes. In the first scene two men are talking in the living room of a house, which may have been damaged by a bomb (World War II?) It occured to me that the living room somewhat looked like a circus manege. In the second scene a flame is "wandering" from what I remember as a mansion on the top of a hill to a camp. The camp is inhabitated by poor people and the men have dark beards. They may be refugees, gypsies or simply poor people. The flame looked unreal to me, it was perhaps made by animation tools. This is also why I have written that it might have been a fantasy film. Do you recognize those two films, which may be Europan?
