Here's one that most TCM fans probably know.

A man is being escorted to prison on a train.  He is handcuffed to a police detective.  The two men are on the observation platform on the rear of the train when the train starts going over a bridge.  In a desperate attempt to escape, the man pulls the detective off the train and the two go tumbling into a river.

Do you know this movie?

Funny, I was just thinking about It's A Wonderful World the other day. James Stewart and Claudette Colbert in a very funny comedy. I have an old tape of the film. It was on TCM a few weeks ago but I didn't get a chance to watch.

Good work, Lavender!  My next clue was going to be that the title was the same as the title of a song made popular by Louis Armstrong.   1939 was a big year for James Stewart with Destry and Mr. Smith.    This movie may have been overlooked by some, but it is indeed entertaining.

I highly recommend it.  

Lavender, you're up next.

Well, I gave it a couple of days and no one ventured a guess.  It is from this past weekend's Noir Alley film "Suspense" with Barry Sullivan.  He finds Albert Dekker's ring in his drink.  Dekker had supposedly been killed in an avalanche some time previously.

Guess you and I are the only ones who watched Miles. Good work, your thread  :)

Thanks, Lav.  In "Suspense", former juvenile star Bonita Granville played the "other woman" who was obsessed with getting Barry Sullivan back from Belita.  In both his intro and wrap up, Eddie Muller never mentioned Bonita, even though it was one of her first adult roles.  It was probably the only movie to feature two actresses named Bonita and Belita.

Now, in this next one, a man and woman are on the lam from the law.  At a roadside diner they see a car carrier truck pull in and the driver gets out to eat.  While he is inside eating, they sneak into one of the cars that he is hauling.  That way they catch a free ride for hundreds of miles.   Here's a big hint:  The title may remind you of something that Scarlett O'Hara was famous for saying.

Yes, Lavender.  Besides the big hint, I gave another when I stated "in this next one", because "Tomorrow Is Another Day" is the next offering on Noir Alley.  Ruth Roman is actually a blonde at the beginning of the movie, but she quickly attains her more familiar brunette look.  Maybe if more folks on these boards would watch these noirs, we might get more questions about them. 

Tomorrow Is Another Day (1951)

 Good work, Lavender.  It's your thread now.

I thought I tried this on another tread, but here goes

Scene 1 - a grandmother hires a governess/companion for her unruly granddaughter

Scene 2 - after the governess is hired, there is an uncomfortable scene when an older man comes to dinner

I haven't seen The Chalk Garden in many years, but your clues remind me of the Deborah Kerr, Haley Mills film ???

It's probably about the saddest movie ever made.  It's "All Mine To Give" starring Cameron Mitchell and Glynis Johns as the parents of the six children.  The parents die and the oldest son, who is about twelve, is left with the task of giving his siblings away to other families at Christmas time.   It's so sad that I can't watch it anymore.

It's based on a true story if you want to get really sad . It's such a good film and yes it;s heartbreaking. Dale Eunson  and his wife Kathrine wrote the article first published in Cosmoplitan Magazine ,then the book and he and his wife wrote the screenplay for the film.  His father was Robbie  ( played by Rex Thompson) the eldest son. Yes, it's such a sad story, but take heart, I believe that the kids turned out OK.

I knew someone must have seen this film that's shown on TCM this time of the  year.  Swithin wrote years ago that All Mine To Give was shown in school when he was growing up. I'm still watching the film , TCM will show All Mine To Give at  12 pm this Sunday. Miles, it's your thread

Thanks, Lavender.  

Here is one that shouldn't be too difficult.  A man shares a bed with a horse.  The horse continually pulls the covers away from the man.  

Here's a hint:  The movie is a sequel to one that the man had starred in previously where he played a dentist.
