    Well, it's not exactly barely known, but it certainly is cult:

    Return of the Living Dead

    Shirley Valentine......British flick...somewhat obscure and hard to find, but well worth the effort. Patsy from from Ab-Fab has a small part and some of the best lines "Darling, I'm a Hooker, I'm a hore, I'm a highclass class call girl"

    The Red Pony, 1949

    With a screen play by John Steinbeck from his own novella,
    original musical score by Aaron Copland,
    directed by Academy-Award winner Lewis Milestone (All Quiet on the Western Front),
    and performances by Myrna Loy & Robert Mitchum,
    this is one bit of Americana you shouldn't miss.

    It also includes one of the most frightening scenes I have ever seen in a motion picture, including all the so-called horror movies, when the young boy is attacked by vultures. In the middle of a quiet and otherwise gentle setting, it could not be more shocking, and the rapid cuts and frenzied music anticipate Hitchcock's later shower scene in Psycho.

    not so obscure, but people seem to dismiss it based on Megan Fox's bimbo stereo type.

    I think this movie is hilarious and has cult classic potential.

    I freaking LOVE THAT MOVIE! It's so sad it was so underrated just because people don't like Megan Fox. What a pity...


    I think people know about it, but it's an older movie, but my favorite and everyone should know about it.

    Has Bruce Willies, Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn

    DEATH BECOMES HER
    I'm watching it right now icon_smile.gif

    The Best Years Of Our Lives, 1946

    Actually a very famous movie, a major Academy Award winner, but nearly forgotten now. About 3 WWII US veterans who come home to the same town, to face physical, emotional & romantic challenges in readjusting to civilian life.

    There is one scene, shown below, that always makes me cry like a baby. Few movies can, but this scene does. The actor is an actual veteran who really lost both his hands, and here he shows his pre-war fiancee, the literal "girl next door" what it means to live with a double amputee.

    She still wants to marry him after he returns, but her family objects, because of his disability, and he doubts she should marry him, too. So he tries to shock her with the reality of living with him. The most emotional moments start at 5:45, but watch the whole 10-minute clip if you have the patience (and the guts). He won the Academy Award for this, BTW.

    That's currently running on PBS. Check your local listings. I saw parts of it a few nights ago. The song choices were pretty good.

    Haha, so did I - it was such a pleasure to watch - incredibly charming and totally underrated!

    Here's another one from Australia:



    Have to see it to appreciate it though; this trailer doesn't do it justice... icon_sad.gif
