I don't understand. Is this a shot from a movie?

Correct. Review: Houdini (1953).

See the kid at the lower right?



Just a few frames earlier she's giving the big girls the eye, and I bet she's thinking "Are you going to do that screaming thing again?"

I might have actually got this one if you had posted the second shot instead of the first. I didn't even recognize Janet Leigh in the first one.

I saw Houdini several times on TV as a kid. I loved it then. It was later that I found out that most of the movie was completely fictitious. Kinda spoiled it for me.

I recognized her from the first one. One of her most famous pics is screaming in the shower in, well, y'know.

My pic is easier than you think. You're just not seeing all the clues...

Name the film that this image is related to. It's not IN the film but it's on the BD.




There was a John Hurt film in which he plays a tired diplomat given a thankless job in the Euro. Underrated and forgotten. I can't recall the title...

That's Joanne Whalley[-Kilmer] in the first two images, than whom there is no more beautiful actress from those years.

It's also on the DVD I have from the 4 Volume Bond collections.

It's from the Goldeneye music video by Tina Turner. I think your instructions were unnecessarily cryptic. You could have said this was from a music video related to a film right from the start.

Correct. Not too cryptic for you, and I think you just repeated my initial clue.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you had said it's from a "music video" instead of saying it was "from a musical element", it would have been clearer. A "music video" is clearly understood. What the heck is a "musical element"?

Helium could be considered musical if you let it slowly escape from a balloon while holding the end just right.

Blazing Saddles had a campfire scene that was packed to the brim with musical elements.

Correct. Now on Blu-ray and worth a look. Review: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939).

That first shot was of Maureen O'Hara (age 19) and Edmond O'Brien (age 24). She's mighty pretty in this one.

I was thinking of O'Hara but thought, Wow was she ever that young? Really interesting, intelligent lady IIRC.
