Three point shot from the line, and I'm done for today..

Everyone else, I see on, but must be doing football or other hot topics.

Ok, that was an obscure one: Italian SF has no fan base. How did you recognize it?

I'm positively sure...I remember thousands of films dating back to the 20's (born in the 60's) and I never heard of it.

My memory is also usually pretty good. ...And I too watched a lot of movies, and even worked as a projectionist.
I even took a course in Cinema history while in college. ...I made a film, and a whole lot more...

And like you I'm still young; born in the mid-fifties.

It's from a Robert Sheckley story. He was a minor SF writer but I remember having his short story collections in my youth.

As for the film... well, Barbarella, you know. It's not at all serious, but neither is it amusing.

Sorry for the OT: What we Canadians refer to "college" school years (3 to 4), I believe our American friends call that "high-school".

And to get a Master degree (Maitrise), you need five additional years of University. My best friend back East has three Masters. ...Geology, Science, and Communication. His name is Mario.

I think I speak for all of us when I say that we are very proud of Mario. His shining example will no doubt light the way for many more to come.

Being Canadian is only icing on an already delicious and voluminous cake.






Personally, I'm all for more broads given the choice.

It's been over 48 hours and still no answer for my screenshot challenge. I thought it was easy too. You all need to step up your game. Some of the stuff on here is very obscure too!

Where is your 'screenshot challenge'? Let me judge for myself on how truly "obscure" it is.

I have no idea. Without an actors face it's tough to research. How about another clue?

Is that it, your screenshot challenge? I have no clue, not a single clue whatsoever; never seen this of my entire life. Now, that is truly "obscure".

You said in your challenge: "Name the movie:" ...Are you certain that this is a movie?
