Name the pre-1970 film

Recommended Posts

It was *Mockingbird* that inspired this post, but it?s not the movie that I?m looking for?

 

This father is befuddled and put-upon while just trying to have a good time. He is a dad of the relatively modern age?what did they call it, ?the nuclear family? ?? An Oscar winner played dad?

I forgot it's supposed to be a pre-1970 film...How about "MR HOBBS TAKES A VACATION" starring Jimmy Stewart ?

Clue: Opening scene shows Rome burning while Nero plays the harp (not the fiddle)...

There you go....I just finished watching that last week...Incidentally, you know what they say about "Nero playing the fiddle while Rome burned" ? I think playing the harp would be closer to the truth...Has anybody seen pictures or read of ancient Romans and Greeks playing the fiddle...?..Your thread, Six.

You got that right, Wise Lady.*List of Adrian Messenger* (1963). Fun mystery (not too thrilled with fox hunts tho). good work, your turn to think one up.

Good guess, cujas, but the director of this film, tho able, is less celebrated than Hitchcock and the movie is of the ?B? variety?

The suspect disappears and his friend steps in to exonerate him.

Yes, finance, it?s *Desperate* (1947), an Anthony Mann noir starring Steve Brodie?the thread is yours.
