Help! What's The Name of That Film?

With such knowledgeable folk on the site I thought a list topic helping others remember the names of long forgotten films might be of some use.

If you are trying to remember a name of a film you watched 40 years ago or only 40 minutes ago then ask in here and let the Letterboxd community help you.

If somebody does solve your problem can you please confirm they have the correct film so I can add it to the list.


  • Thats the problem i'm not sure about the bombing, but I am almost certain the second scene is from the 80's.

    yeh ok there are definitely 2 films that I would love to identify, the second, theres an earthquake and collapsed highway or whatever its called, I think i remember someones trapped leg cut off or almost cut off.

    the first one i know i dont have much at all but are there any films about the oklahoma bombing or something alike.

    thanks for any help.

  • Fun list! @EchoOneSeven. I think it might be Treasure of the Four Crowns - an Indiana Jones-esque flick from 1983.

  • @richhayley Could it be a made-for-TV movie? I'm thinking 'Miracle on I-880' which used real footage from the 1989 San Francisco earthquake.

  • @AndySummers How about 'In God's Hands' (1998)

  • i think that might be it

  • @missenota That is it!! Thanx.

  • @Echo You're welcome! I'm so excited to have found this site; it's been ages since I've been able to geek out about movies. If you've got 3D glasses (old style) you can watch it again in its full glory on youtube.

  • Oh thank god that was totally the film missenota 'Miracle on Interstate 880'. now just need to know if there are any films about oklahoma bombing, then i might get these films out of my head, lol

  • @richhayley Glad I could be of some service.

  • Hi all, maybe someone can help me here. I'm looking for the title of an american movie, black an white made probably in the 50s. There is this scene of a guy on a motorcycle in a tunnel underwater (under the sea, maybe). The tunnel breaks, the water rushes in, and the guy is speeding on his motorcycle in the tunnel, trying to get away from the water flooding the tunnel. I saw this movie when I was a kid and was very impressed with it. Many thanks if someone can help me...
