Great answer, but it can also apply to I AM A FUGITIVE FROM A CHAIN GANG.

That's more a brief summary than a deceptively boring one.  "Various states squabble over penal policy," is more in keeping with the topic theme.

That would be a more adequate way of putting it. I admit I wondered if it sounded more like a summary rather than a bland description. 

 I admit I hesitated attributing anything to this thread because I don't have much of an imagination. Oh well, I tried.

"A lack of good communication results in hardships for the assembled"   ???

Its a new concept to me but, I like it. Takes a few tries to get into the swing of things.

Its another one of those games where only movie fans have a clue what's going on.

Yeah, and ya know WHAT?!

I was just thinkin' here that IF they'd ever make a movie about us regulars here on these boards, your last sentence up there would be ANOTHER perfectly stated short summary to IT too!!!  ;)

LOL

Wait, I know THAT movie!

Wasn't it titled:

"Cinderella and Prince Charming Buy an Airstream in Malibu" ???

(...oh, wait...those weren't three DIFFERENT flicks you're talkin' about here, were they speedy???)  

;)

I would watch a remake of “The Long Long Trailer” with Cinderella and Prince Charming! 
 

As an aside, did anyone know that the singing voice of Prince Charming is Mike Douglas, the 60s-70s talk show host?

Suuuure it was.

And so I suppose the NEXT thing you'll be tellin' us here was that one of the little mice was voiced by Merv Griffin, RIGHT?!!! 

;)

(...no, actually I didn't know that, speedy...that's actually pretty interesting...I DID know Mike Douglas was a big band singer in his day though...and hey coincidentally, just like Merv was)

Back in my workin' days with the airlines, one of ladies I worked with was absolutely crazy for James Darren.

And then ONE day, guess who walked up to her at the ticket counter to check in for his flight?

Yep, you guessed it.

(...Rose was on cloud nine for the rest of her shift...and for a few days more)

I'll never forget the time TCM showed...

"Meet Me in DC, Mildred!"

(...seems you remember it too, eh speedy?!)

Yep, that's it!   That was my first one, pretty easy.  These are fun but I still haven't figured out all of the clues in the OP.
