    A low budget, black + white movie set in the Southern California punk rock scene. John Doe stars, and Dave Alvun has a great cameo...

    I used to have this movie on VHS tape. Young Hayley Mills was a talented actress.

    In the states and I guess, the rest of the world, Haley was mainly known for her Disney movies. That was fine, but she had a much greater scope as an actress, as this movie shows.

    A favorite of mine. I mentioned this movie in the thread where Renee Zellweger, plays Judy Garland, in Judy.

    Jane Horrocks in real life imates famous singers including Judy Garland.

    Because of this, a play was written around her ability.

    The play was made into a this movie.

    I really liked it - the supporting cast is also awesome and there are plenty of laugh out loud funny moments.

    The Yellow Handkerchief was an endearing low budget movie with William Hurt.

    It also starred a pre-Twilight, Kristen Stewart in a very interesting role.

    Interestingly enough, Stewart was in another movie, Into The Wild, with Hurt, only the year before.

    I'm quite fond of this movie.

    That reminds me: The Late Show starring Art Carney as an old, broken-down PI and Lily Tomlin as his flaky client. Produced by Robert Altman and directed by Robert Benton.

    Regarding lesser-known Kurosawa films, I’m partial to his 1975 film Dersu Uzala. It’s a Japanese/Soviet Union co-production, filmed in Siberia, about a Russian military officer who befriends a local hunter. It’s an unusual subject and location for Kurosawa, but much of his style is there, particularly in the scenes of Siberia’s brutal weather.

    Even though the movie won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film and was distributed in the U.S. by Roger Corman, I think it’s little-known these days (here, anyway) except to cinephiles.

    James Caan's best performance ever, bar none! Even he thinks so.
    And it was Michael Mann's first theatrical feature, after the TV movie, "The Jericho Mile"

    In the late seventies Channel 44 in Chicago used to show unusual and obscure films, the same movie repeated the same time, Monday through Friday! This was long before cable channels thought of it! I had a girlfriend then who watched The Baby (1973) five nights in a row...don’t know how she did it!
    A movie I liked was Hitch Hike (1963) starring Aretha Aems, Arletty, etc. It was a really good movie, and seems to have disappeared. I made an audio recording of the soundtrack (mic up to a TV speaker into a reel to reel, still have the tape) but I wonder whatever happened to this film, I’ve never found it on VHS, DVD...anybody else remember this movie?

    “The Swimmer” with Burt Lancaster

    I had a 16mm print of that back in the 70's.

    Don't remember much of it, just that this guy, went from here to there by swimming house to house in other people's swimming pools.

    An odd little low budget film to see a big name like Burt Lancaster in?
