74. a good hamburger with lots of onions, was it in S. Eureka or N. Eureka?

from same movie: "Here's to Boompah"

and finally same movie:

"gum drops, shortcake, sweet stuff jelly roll"

o.k. one more, same movie:

"Hip! hip!"

Is it MR HOBBS TAKES A VACATION?? I think Boompah was Jimmy Stewart's nickname?

#53 another clue(2)

blonde woman eating an ice cream cone in town square

and

she finally has someone to cook for.

Those both fit Under the Tuscan Sun, but I'm not sure about the "Turn me Over."

:smile: CONGRATULATIONS RACHELD! It is Under the Tuscan Sun. The "turn me

over....." quote comes from the scene where they talk about San Lorenzo patron

saint of cooking when she finally has those workmen to cook for. Good job! :wink:

A hui hou!

:smile: YES YES YES!!!!!! Congratulations Waterdogs! It is Mr. Hobbs one of our

very favorite movies, the lines are great. I love the last one where he says "And

they say nothing good ever came from drinking." Congratulations!!! :smile: a hui hou!

#79: "Hannibal" as played by Sir Anthony Hopkins and starring Julianne (oh yes she will be mine) Moore.

#70: I can't remember the name of the movie, but was it the one with Laura Linney (?) and Bob Dreyfuss about the fire bombers? About the only time you'll see a B-26 Marauder in flight in color these days?

This whole love/hate thing would be a lot easier if it was just hate.

Bring me your finest food, stuffed with your second finest!

Not this time. That's the one where Holly Hunter "made" her date dinner by opening hot deli-foil packages and made it look homemade by scattering flour over the table, the floor and herself.

And she always dreamed of peaches.

Would this be #84?

Two minute scene: Mom bustles home from work, grabs two little saucepans, dumps a cup of Minute rice in one, a can of tuna and a can of mushroom soup into the other, and as she scritches them around with a fork, yells, "Dinner's ready."

70. "A little sprinkle of tapioca in the cherry pie, just like Mama did," just before the cook is coaxed down onto the floor with her husband, with her "Apron up around her ears."

(bonus clue: same movie features a roast chicken dinner used to decorate the dining room walls)

Is this one Sweet Dreams, the movie about Patsy Cline?

Nope. As I said this is an old movie. It is actually a remake of an older movie and is the inspiration for the tv show "I Dreamed of Jeannie".
