Indian Movies Filter: I'm trying to remember the name of a movie from the 50s or 60s. Here's the basic storyline: [more inside]
What is the name of the movie or show with this plot?: A young girl with an abusive father is given a black-robed doll name "the Viper." At night, the Viper comes alive as a human-sized version of itself with green, glowing eyes and helps the girl. Near the end of the movie/show, there is a twist where the Viper is actually the girls father or something along those lines.
Are there any non-documentary films where the duration of the plot matches the length of the film? For example, a 90 minute snapshot of a relationship, a journey, a battle... or whatever.

I'm trying to remember what the title of this movie was. I think it was made in the 1960's or 1970's in the U.S. I remember watching it on TV on the Sunday Matinee show in the 1980's. The plot involved this millionaire who wanted to attack the Soviet Union, he had a small force which was to attack Russia by driving trucks across the polar ice cap. All I can remember was that in the end of the film his plan is thwarted by the Soviets, who send planes to bomb the ice, and the trucks sink to the bottom of the ocean. Any ideas?
I have just found out I'm a big fan of post apocalyptic fiction books.

Vague Movie Recollection filter: All I remember is this is a movie from the late 60's, set in Africa. One key scene is a bad guy wearing a stolen watch with a builtin alarm starts a stampede (of elephants?) when the wrist watch alarm goes off. Said bad guy ends up crushed in a bush. The alarm watch touch suggests it's set in modern times. Help me, Mefites!
Back in the 1980s, I remember watching a bizarre sort of Indiana Jones-copycat treasure-hunting/western movie. It featured a young, blond Daryl Hannah lookalike and possibly Aztecs who liked to dip humans head-first in liquid gold before decapitating them. It was fairly violent stuff, and one scene had the characters being horrified when one of their comrades returned headless on a horse. The whole thing must have been somewhat tongue-in-cheek, however, because it ended with a humorous 70s-style montage that set up a (presumably fake) sequel with the blond girl as a butt-kicking Indy-type heroine. I am pretty sure it was made in the 80s, and I remember the dialogue as being English, but I could be wrong; all I know is that Bud Spencer and Terence Hill weren't in it. Ring any bells?
I just watched the DVD of Awake, and I'm going crazy trying to figure out what kind of camera Jack (Terrence Howard) uses throughout the film. It is all black and a bit old looking. I'm a bit of a camera nerd, and I have to know!

Are We Done Yet? was the sequel to an original film, but was weirdly also a remake of the classic Cary Grant comedy Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House. Along the same lines, Ocean's Twelve was based on an unrelated script first intended as a John Woo project. Can we think of any other examples of a sequel to an original movie starting life as an unconnected film? [more inside]
