Hi - can anyone help with this, it is one of my earliest memories and I have been trying to figure out what this film was for 30 odd years! I am pretty sure this is not a black and white film, so can't be too old.

All I can remember is two people - men (?) in old fashioned clothes on either a train or a horse drawn carriage travelling. They are in conversation, and the windows are very fogged up with mist. One of the men scrawls with his finger the word 'fraud', or 'freud', on the misted window - I think it is the former. I remember being very confused because I knew both words were 'real' words and couldn't differentiate which the man had written because my lack of spelling knowledge. I would have only been 3 or 4 or so, sorry I have no more clues..eternally grateful for any answers!

Other than the fact it was two women in the film, it sounds like the important train scene in Hitchcock's THE LADY VANISHES (1938) when Mrs. Froy writes her name FROY on the mist on the window.

It is in black and white, but there was a 70's color remake with essentially the same scene so maybe that's what you saw.

The scene in the original is at 29:40:

Small | Large

The scene in the remake is at 5:50:

Small | Large

If you're an Andy Milligan fan there's no hope for you.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
