What film is this? Can anybody help?
My friend Gioia watched the first half of a movie in the middle of one night in the first 90s. She liked it, but since she was also very tired, so ended up sleeping.
The days after she didn't think too much about this movie, but then after a while she found herself wondering and wondering again about it, and still is.
She tried to retrieve the old show schedules, but unsuccesfully.
So, what movie is this?
This is the plot of the first half as she told me.
The main character is a middle-aged white man who happens to lose his memory all at once. My friend Gioia doesn't remember the name of the character, nor the presence of some famous stars in the movie. [more inside]

Gay themed, black and white, containing a dead body and a threesome. That's mostly what I remember. (possible offensive language in remembered dialogue ahead) [more inside]

I'm in love with these
wedding place cards, but I'm having trouble finding online sources of line art I can use. Specifically, I would like to find an online directory of line art - the kind of black and white image that would accompany a dictionary definition. Ideally, it would be open source/taken from old books but I'd be willing to pay if I could find the right images. I've tried searching Google images with the line art function, but it's pretty limited in the results and often too cartoon-y for what I"m looking for. Additionally, if you could think of any additional search terms for that style of art it could be very helpful. [more inside]

My birthday party starts in less than one hour. The theme is "black and white," and I had planned to project a friend's vaudeville silent film for atmosphere during the party. I just thought to check with the director to make sure he was still down with me showing his film, and it turns out that it isn't. I now need a plan B, in a hurry! See the invite here
for the vibe...looking for artsy/funky/old-timey. And if you happen to be in Portland, please send me a MeMail if you'd like to join the festivities!

Does anyone know anything about this photograph
? I came across it on a stranger's Tumblr site and it's completely unattributed, and no amount of Googling has turned up even a clue as to where it's from. Looks like it's out of a book (page number in the bottom right), but beyond that, I got nothin'. I'm totally intrigued by it. (Note: I've already emailed the blog owner via their Tumblr site, so please don't email them again; I don't want to harass them...) Thanks!

Looking for the title of a foreign (Russian?) film, probably filmed mid-late 90s. What I remember of the plot: gold(?) smuggling operation, with the gold being smuggled in cigarette packs; I believe a factory or power plant was central to the plot somehow; the film was in black & white until about 2/3 through the movie, when in a crucial scene a gold cigarette was used to connect a circuit, flipping on the lights in the power plant and switching the film over to color. Help?

We bought an used Insignia TV and hooked it up to our comcast cable box. Unfortunately, we can get a picture but it is only in black and white. I've taken the cables in the back and moved them around and the only result I can get is in one of the inputs there is a small amount of color that shows on the screen that correlates to sound vibrations. I've used the remote to turn up the color and it has no effect. What can I do to fix this?

A number of online photo printing services have been mentioned here on AskMeFi, but a search hasn't revealed one that will print to my liking. I'm looking for a top notch black and white print with archival borders - 8x10 image on 11x14 paper. I'm working with high quality scans of black and white negatives. Suggestions?

I love this
photograph (I don't remember where I found it, unfortunately). How would I go about taking similar photos with a 35mm and/or digital camera? What kind of lense/lighting/setup would have been used for something like this? Is there a name for this kind of effect? Is there a good way to duplicate this effect in digital post-processing?
