A Christian group claims that "Jesus" is the most-watched movie of all time. They cite the New York Times, July 22 2003 article titled "1979 Bible Film is the Most-Watched Movie of All Time", on page "1AR". Looking through the New York Times's archives, both on the web and microfilm, I can't find the article; only an obituary for William R. Bright which mentions the film without making the claim in question. Is the article they cite real? What does AR refer to? Also, is the claim accurate?

When I was in college, I watched a French movie for one of my classes. The premise, as I remember it, was that a French Jew is separated from his wife and child during World War II. He starts paying a old farming couple to hide him, giving them some of the gold and valuables he is carrying. Eventually, the old couple decide that hiding him is rather lucrative, and manage to fool him into remaining in hiding after the war is over so that they can squeeze him dry. [more inside]

I'm trying to remember the title of a movie where two versions of the same story were told in parallel. The branch between the two stories started when a man bumped into (or maybe cut off?) the woman (main character I believe) on a stairwell in a subway station, causing her to miss her train. Any clues as to the title?

Ok, here's a tough one. Does anyone remember a movie trailer from the 1970s that showed an image of an x-ray skull -- scary enough in itself -- and then showed what appeared to be something dripping from the eye socket. Looking closer it was actually a woman wearing a billowing dress. Totally freaky image and I can't remember what movie it was for ... some horror flick for sure. Anyone remember this?
I'm trying to figure out a movie title. The movie was set in Australia, where a guy is traveling by himself and meets a girl, falls in love, and she drugs him and when he wakes up he is married to her and living in a commune. The thing is no one ever leaves the commune, and they make dog food there. I've searched netflix, and imdb. Now hits. It had a goofy two word title. I just cannot remember it. Can someone help me?

Can you split an .iso (DVD burn image) file in two? I've been ripping all of my Netflix movies into .iso files before realizing that my burning software (Nero burning rom) doesn't split an image file (.iso) that is larger than 4.7gig into two smaller files. All of these movies require dual layer blank DVDs, but since I have a 100 pack of blank DVDs I would like to try to see if I could split the movies to 2 different discs rather than buy the larger blanks.
