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?
Did anyone catch The Baby last night? I just finished watching it, and it's almost impossible to describe. Kind of a combination of Freaks, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Night of the Living Dead, and Die! Die! My Darling!, with the weird sensation that the bloated Liz Taylor of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, or maybe it's Divine from Pink Flamingos, is inhabiting Ruth Roman's body! And what an ending! I'm still cracking up at the denouement. Bottom line, though, is that it's a camp classic, even if it's probably more suited for a repeat on Hallowe'en than on Mother's Day!
