Going South. How can we play when you post then leave the thread for hours while others are waiting on more clues. I realise we are in different time zones but you seem to be available a lot of the time when we in this time zone are online. Much more fun if the game is played faster.

The only underwater city thing I know of is The Abyss. Do not remember the actors. Come to think of it.. it could have been Ed Harris. Was not a very memorable film as I recall.

That is ok. I too am getting old. No one playing from our time zone. See if you can get more to play from your time zone. Raja, Katto, Boycs30, Bolero? Good nite.

Get a chance Baggers, watch the interview between Crash Craddock & Mike Coward. Like all the interviews Craddock has done with figures from the 70s, there are some very surprising revelations, Max Walkers claim he bowled reverse swing on the Windies tour in 1973 was a surprise.

Watched it Mick. What happened to Mike Coward.. loved his commentary. He called the 1995 Windies tour.. one Ponting was the sub bat. Also recall it was the first time that cameras were allowed into the Aussie dressing room after the match

A comedy and a war film..made latish 60s and you have no idea. Spaghetti western actor James Coburn was in it as was All In the Familys Carol O'Connor. When the soldiers arrive the villagers are ready to surrender but first the GIs have to do something. Help?

Mike Coward is mainly a print Journo, very much a similar career to Craddocks. The only commentary i can remember is the 95 Windies,tour and i thought he was quite good, called the last wkt.
James Coburn the Aussie? He actually played an Australian POW in a war movie. He done a bit more than just Spaghetti Westerns.
Still a blank on your movie though.

James Coburn could never play an Aussie. Did you hear his accent in Great Escape..bloody awful.

What Did you do in the War Daddy. One of Blake Edwards earlier comedies.

another less obscure comedy.

A Brit/American sci fi. A group of estranged school buddies decide to do the Golden Mile..a 12 pub crawl around their old hometown. Nick Frost and Martin Freeman are in it.

Hope your not calling the greatest Western ever made, the Magnificent 7 a Spaghetti Western, Baggers.
I don't recall that war movie, must try and find it and watch it.

SPEED. Too many clues mate. Make your synopsis with the barest of facts. Then tease by gradually adding more clues after each reply.

Yes I did Mick. There was only one JAWS.. sequels either had a number or a tag line after the Jaws title as I understand it. Why is he not answering his own posts ?

Ok, since it's Open Floor, here's a question from me.

1940s film about a woman bringing up her family in New York, trying really hard to make both ends meet.
One of those emotional dramas, which was remade later into a TV series.
