  1. The Big Clock (1948) and No Way Out (1987): Main characters have to "rescue" themselves from being falsely accused of murder.
  2. Running away from home of a different sort: The Glass Wall (1953)
  3. Ritchie Petrie threatens to run away from home in "Never Name a Duck," one of the many charming episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show. Ritchie starts packing a suitcase, but he never finishes because his father talks him out of joining Stanley the duck.
  4. Grandma's Boy, 1922 film starring Harold Lloyd Stranger Than Paradise (1984): the grandmother always wins at cards. I think this film by Jim Jarmusch is hilarious.
  5. Blue, White and Perfect, 1942 film starring Lloyd Nolan as the detective Michael Shayne. George Reeves has a non-Superman supporting role. And how about A Night at the Opera (1935) and the famous stateroom scene? (Not sure "the main character" spends a lot of time at sea 😁)
  6. Embrace of the Serpent (2015) Into the Amazon (2018): PBS documentary about Teddy Roosevelt and the expedition to explore the Amazon
  7. Life of Pi (2012) In the Heart of the Sea (2015)
  8. How about A Fistful of Dynamite (1971)?
  9. How could I forget: The Last Picture Show (1971), which was also listed as having a "playing pool" scene! Experiment in Terror (1962): the police find an informant named Popcorn in a movie theater. Pushover (1954): Kim Novak and Fred MacMurray meet outside a movie theater The Burglar (1957): opens with Dan Duryea watching a newsreel and getting an idea for a burglary
  10. The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) Cinema Paradiso (1988) Sabotage (1936 Hitchcock film)
  11. And Dick Van Dyke was 92 when he danced in Mary Poppins Returns (2018).
  12. To Hell and Back (1955) Give 'Em Hell, Harry! (1975) -- A stretch, I know, but it does have the word hell in the title.😁
  13. Wouldn't all the Hunger Games films come under the "competitive people" category?
  14. All of the Bridget Jones films
  15. Mildred Pierce (1945) was remade by HBO in 2011 as a television mini series.
  16. We Are the Best! (2013), Swedish film that I actually saw in the theater.
  17. I've seen it! I think I've seen all his films. One of my favorites is Lone Star. Another is Limbo. I had the chance to ask him once why he ended Limbo as he did, and he gave me the answer I had already guessed. Not everyone liked it, but I sure did.
  18. Panic in the Streets (1950), starring Richard Widmark Doesn't really take place in a swamp, but it does take place in New Orleans.
  19. Drowning Pool (1975), starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward Down by Law (1986), Jim Jarmusch film Passion Fish (1992), John Sayles film
  20. Interstellar (2014) High Life (2018)
  21. I'm late to this one, I know, but how about Working Girl (1988), starring Melanie Griffith.
  22. I would say (even if no one else would!) that Roger Moore's role in the television show The Saint prepared him for all the "Bond, James Bond" films.
  23. I'm going to add Groundhog Day (1993). Not an official holiday because it doesn't get its own Hallmark card and federal and state government employees don't get the day off, but it does get its own mascot: Punxsutawney Phil.
