I hope this is the right thread.

Last night I saw Aaron Katz’s Gemini, and in one scene an old movie was playing in the background. I took a few screenshots on my laptop:

Gemini itself is filled with lots of tributes to classic film noir, so I expect this to be one too....but I don’t know the movie (or even the actors). Any ideas?

Yes, it's a film noir. The film is Behind Green Lights (1946) by Otto Brower. The older actor you see sitting down in the first and second picture is Don Beddoe. The guy in the third and last picture is William Gargan. The film also stars Carole Landis, who committed suicide just two years later.

Hello

I have been thinking about a French film an its director. I think it was made in the 90s or early 2000s. I remember it being set in a tram and different passengers are having monologues or talks. It had a bit of late Godard feeling. The director was gay and i think he died to early.

Does this ring any bells?

Thanks

”Les passagers” by Jean-Claude Guiguet
I've never heard of it before, but now I really want to see it:

SYNOPSIS: The thoughts and dreams of a group of people riding a subway in Paris provides the springboard for Jean-Claude Guiguet's drama Les Passagers/The Passengers. As the train rolls along, various characters either talk among themselves or address the camera on a variety of subjects. A mathematician (Bruno Putzulu) speaks with one of his students (Stephane Rideau) about the statistical implications of the spread of AIDS. A nurse (Fabienne Babe) meets with a security guard she's infatuated with (Philippe Garziano), while her friend enjoys a daydream about the joys of life as a rural housewife. A man rants about problems with sex and the virtues of masturbation, while another person debates the relative merits of the films Savage Nights and The Mother and The Whore.

This DVD is the only release I can find. A bit too pricey for me, even if it's very intriguing.

Identify This Movie It's NOT Desert Legion w Alan Ladd

#1189 Post by ims0faking » Sun Dec 09, 2018 6:31 pm

I saw an afternoon movie in the 70's and have been trying to find it ever since. I was pretty sure that Alan Ladd was the star and I narrowed the movie down to "Desert Legion". Finally saw that movie and it's the wrong one. I can't remember if it was color or bw. I was sure it had something to do with the French Foreign Legion, but I was also sure Alan Ladd was in it.

The scene I remember: There was a long procession walking up a sand dune, the star was in the front near the top, the starlet was at the back end. She started to fall down the dune, and the star ran and jumped from the top (I'm sure my brain has exaggerated the scene over the years, but he flew through the air over the row of soldiers? heads and landed 100 feet down near the bottom.

This would be the best xmas gift this year, if I can find the name of this movie.
