  1. It is possible that jamming a box under the hood could disable the truck. For example, if it is put on top of the wire that goes to the center of the distributor cap, the wire might get pulled out of its connector when the hood is slammed. If that happened the engine would crank away but not start. If the box was bare metal, it is also possible that it touched an electrical contact, such as at the coil, and the engine block, shorting out the ignition. Once the box fell away, the truck could have been started in this case, but as it was already being towed, nobody would have noticed. Therefore,
  2. Tor, Thanks for the reply, but that is not it. That move is about full size robots, mine is about nanobots (microscopic robots). Be seeing you, E
  3. I am trying to identify a movie from the nanobot craze of the late 80’s to mid 90’s. It involved a guy battling a hoard of nanobots that ran amok. There was a scene of hokey CGI of smooth, undulating, opaque, plastic, gray clouds" coming at the camera from a distance. That’s all I remember except that it was a rather lousy movie. However, I a personal curiosity about it. Anybody know the name of this one??? Be seeing you, EW
  4. Hi All, I am trying to identify a silent movie. This was a silent movie where an American man was in a banana republic and found that everyone was trying to kill him (no, this is NOT “Why Worry”, Harold Lloyd, 1923). The weapon of choice was a Hollywood bomb consisting of a black sphere the size of a baseball with a fuse sticking out the top. In one scene, the violence had subsided and he was walking down the street. He came upon a little old lady carrying a heavy grocery bag, and offered to carry it for her. After a short while, he noticed that she has somehow disappeared. He looked in t
  5. Hi, I am looking for the name of an old movie, I believe from the 30’s or 40’s. I think it took place in Ireland. A teenage boy tells his dad that a lawyer came from America to find an heir to a rich person with a name similar to theirs. The dad told him that they were not related to the deceased, and to forget about it. Then the dad arranged to be the last person the layer interviewed before moving on to the next town. He walked the lawyer to his cab, and in front of the townspeople, made a big deal of smiling and said “it was a pleasure doing business with you”. With the town thinking h
  6. Mark, I believe you are right about The American Beauty. I looked up a description of it. It is not exactly as I remember from seeing it about 20 years ago, However, there were other things in the description that sounded familiar, and the departures from my memories are probably errors on my part. Thank you for solving the mystery. Helen and James, I did see The Yellow Rolls Royce a couple of years ago. That is definitely a different movie, but thanks for the input. EW
  7. No, that is not it, but I appreciate the effort. I also like your Nowhere man picture. EW
  8. I am trying to find the name of a movie. This movie was from the late 1950s or early 1960s. It took place in Europe, probably Italy. A man acquired an American luxury car from a woman selling it cheap to spite her husband. Because of the car, he was mistakenly assumed to be a person of importance and treated as such. Is this familiar? Thanks, EW
