In the '60s, there was a British Horror/suspense movie about a strange man who kidnaps a girl to try to win her. What was the film? Who were the stars who were nearly a 2 person cast?

a good thing.One of Charlis's Angels had a
little role in it.Name the film and the Englishman

Walt Disney originally released his shorts and movies through other studios:  Columbia Pictures, United Artists and RKO Radio Pictures before forming his own distribution company.  (Just like Bernie, he knew where the real money was!)

What was the name of Disney's distribution company?

In honor of Sunday's race -

In what 1950 movie did Clark Gable play a race driver? The race scene in the movie features actual footage of the 1950 Indy 500.

Very good, John! Over to you.

A bit of trivia. The #37 car that Gable "drives" in the 500 is actually Joie Chitwood. Chitwood was the founder of the Joie Chitwood Auto Thrill show. He was also the father of Joie Chitwood III. The younger Chitwood was CEO of The Speedway until a few months ago.

Interesting trivia footnote Cos. :good:

OK, keeping on a motoring theme which Movie has a 34 minute car chase, reputedley the longest car chase of any film, wrecking 93 vehicles during the making of it?
