What is said in a particular part of Lost in Translation?

In Lost in Translation, when Bob Harris meets the woman in the hospital waiting room, what (in English) does she say to him, and what if anything does it sound to her like he's saying? I would also love to hear any other spot-translations from the movie if you happen to know them!

Drum Solo by Gene Krupa?

Help me find this movie. Years ago I saw a film clip with a great drum solo. I think it was Louis Prima conducting Sing, Sing, Sing. In the middle, the drummer, I'm sure it was Gene Krupa, starts his solo and doesn't stop, so the band members all get up and go out for a smoke. After a few minutes they all come back in & start playing again. It's a great solo. Does anyone know the name of that movie?

Best soundclips from sci-fi films?

Remember my request for sci-fi music? Six months later, I'm finally ready to make my CD mix. Almost. Last night I figured out how to record mp3 audio from DVD on my Mac, and now I want to rip key dialogue snippets from classic sci-fi films. I went for Khan spitting at Kirk from his grave, but there's too much incidental music. I think maybe I can get Ripley signing off. What other short, iconic soundclips from sci-fi films should I look for? The intro to the old Battlestar Galactica? Something from Logan's Run? Blade Runner bits? Eerie, ethereal, otherworldly, outer-space stuff is best. (Bonus points if you can direct me to a source that's already done the work for me; right now I'm looking at a several-week Netflix slog.)

Horror Flick Still Haunting 35 Years Later

HELP me with this movie title PLEASE! As a child, I saw a black-and-white horror movie about a woman who lived in a house on top of a cliff. Her fiance fell off the cliff and died. She had a mirror at the end of a hallway. Whenever she looked at it, she was still young and beautiful. Many years later, she smashed the mirror and instantly aged and died. It gave me many nightmares back in the day (we had a full-length mirror at the end of a hall and I was terrified to look at it), but today I would love to see it again. After many unsuccessful Internet searches, I fear that y'all are my last hope. PLEASE HELP. Thanks!

A film involving worms in butter...

I'm trying to remember a film I saw on TV 15+ years ago, it was a period film (1800's?) involving a woman who had to take up a trade route or business of some sort after her husband (supposedly) died. On her trip on the "trade route" someone has her try butter with worms in it. And I don't think her husband was actually dead. Can't recall much else.

Name this old horror movie about strange proceedings at sea!

FlickFilter: This scary movie, perhaps from the early 60s, finds our cast stranded on a ship which has become mired in some kind of dense seaweed. They see another galleon nearby and debark to explore it. Each member of the crew dons individual helium (/hydrogen?) balloons--harnessed to their backs like water-wings--and snowshoe-like shoes, and walk across the water to the other boat. This definitive scene is very eerie, and is the clearest in my memory. [more inside]

Help redirecting to a different url after an embedded movie is done playing

I have a webpage that has an embedded movie (wmv) that starts when the page loads. My client is wanting the page to redirect to a different url after the movie is done playing instead of the movie just sitting there in the done position. Please help as my googlefu has failed me on this and I am not familiar enough with movies to figure this out. I am sure there is some javascript that can do this, but I cannot find it. For those that are a little confused I hope this helps: Client visits domain.com/movie.html and when the movie is done playing it needs to go to domain.com/done.html
