It is told as an 4 part anthology. Stars are Michael Redgrave and Googie Withers. This film has other versions.. the Yanks remade it in the 80s I think it was.

Good guess.. I had hoped you would have got it as you like the old b/w flicks. Made in the same year as ATTWN 1945.. reason I said it was rare because no horror films were supposed to be made in Britain during the war. Somehow this one slipped thru or it was made after the German surrender. One segment involved Michael Redgrave as a ventriloquist. Help any? This may help.. a cryptic clue of the title.. not breathing "of" a certain part of the day.

Computer generated graphics movie of the 90s. Heroine is photographer of nature, mostly calamities. A cow flying in air is the most talked about point of this movie in the 90s.

One day the peaceful village of Midwich is cast into a mysterious sleep for several hours, but with no obvious consequences, until soon all the women of child-bearing age turn out to be pregnant. Their children are all born at the same time, and grow quickly into very spooky young people, with strange white-blonde hair and eerie eyes.

60s movie.

Ok another Brit scifi. The inhabitants of a small Scottish island are visited by a malignant, alien being.
It is the middle of winter yet it is more like hell. Stars a couple of horror legends.

No idea.
I really haven't seen many Hollywood / British films - my knowledge is very limited.
Also pretty much all my limited knowledge is of the B/W era.

So I'm able to answer barely 1 in 10 or 20 questions here.

Made in 1967. Set in the present.. Christopher Lee plays a scientist. Basicly the plot is this alien being creates such incredible heat that the lives of the small island community are threatened. Heat figures in the title too.

Good guess. You got the director. This is one of his American films. Think about the plot. Chance meeting. These two do not know each other.

No more CLUES to give except Peter Cushing is also in it. Rather too obsure for you Mick ?

Will try something more mainstream then.

American sci fi. An unshaven, dishevelled man rushes from a hospital room shouting the aliens have taken over but no one listens.

Ha. Was busy.

A writer who hides out in a remote upstate New York cabin in an attempt to overcome the writer’s block brought on by the discovery of his wife's infidelity and their subsequent split. He is visited by a creepy man who accuses him of plagiarizing one of his stories. An hour or so into the movie, the big twist is revealed that This creepy dude is an alternate personality for the writer, with his dissociative identity disorder possibly sparked by his wife cheating on him.

If so than Baggers your Synopsis is wrong, the synopsis for Guns of Navarone, is they go to a Greek isle to blow up German Guns that threaten to destroy British shipps escaping from the already occupied Greece.

If that is the case then I am sorry for misleading. Slap on wrist for Baggers. Is that why you guessed the sequel. So what do we do as GS has answered correctly? If he does not post soon the the floor is yours Mick.
