Thanks, Sixes, and same to you.

Here's one I think should be spotted quickly, but I've been wrong on points like that often:

 

A hospital room; a doctor has pronouced a patient dead, and is wrapping up the necessary business

that goes with that event. The doctor glances up from his work, looks back down, then doubletakes

and looks back up. From the doctor's POV, three nurses are seen at the deathbed, heads bowed, eyes closed, hands together, praying for the departed soul. This is the doctors first indication

that some of the new nurses on the ward are novice Nuns.

This movie involved the last film appearance by a major star who nevertheless continued for years

with other carrer aspects.

As mentioned, the male lead of this movie had a substantial career as a movie star, but this was his last film. He had a longer career in the field of music. Now deceased.

 

The female lead also was active for a long time. She had an Oscar nomination, and also had multiple Emmys for her TV work.

Whew! The readership of this thread is so sparse, I'm glad someone finally got it. Presley's last

film, and actually one of the better scripts he ever worked with. Your thread, Miles.

Thanks. A man wanted by the police for a heinous crime is wandering through the wilderness when he comes across a cabin occupied by a blind man.

 

Name two movies where this happens.

Thase are the two that I was thinking of. It was also parodied in Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein" with Peter Boyle and an unbilled Gene Hackman. It's your thread.

Always loved both those films.Saboteur and Bride of Frankenstein. Frankenstein trying to say friend to the blind man was a memorable and touching scene. Thanks for bringing back that memory.

A young woman sees newspaper clippings of the man she loves jet setting all over the world with other women. She then imagines that the two of them are together instead of the others.

Deleted ? for revision

 

I?ll try to do a better job on it this time (since I not only wrote it badly but remembered it wrong)?

 

A dark room ? three men (a handsome fellow, a thief with poor hygiene and sore feet, a diabolical killer) ? fireworks outside, fireworks inside ? the killer escapes into the carnival outside?

Here?s more?

 

In the end the sore-footed thief (who has survived) complains about his feet as he watches the handsome hero (Barbara Stanwyck?s ex-husband) and the beautiful chanteuse (Frank Sinatra?s ex-wife) clinch?

Thanks, Eve, and Happy Holidays to you and everyone else who contributes to these boards.

 

A woman leans out her window and hangs her stockings on a line. The man directly upstairs grabs them and starts talking to them as if he were talking to a person. Then he sings about having the room above her. She eventually joins him on the roof.
