Google now allows searches by image, revealing the above to be from Dai satsujin/The Great Duel (1964).

You go to the google main page, click image in the header bar, click the camera in the search bar and then input your URL.

Technology makes me uncomfortable sometimes. I feel like that shouldn't be possible.

We have created a guess the film still quiz over at our site, thought I'd share, I know a few of you like to guess these.

There's actually a prize for the winner, open to all, Here.

I'd put pics on here, but I don't want to spam the thread with 50 images.

Sorry I haven't checked up on this thread in a few months, but I've answered my own question. It's called "Der Mörder Dimitri Karamasoff" (1931, according to imdb) and the actor is Fritz Kortner (called Kortner-Kohn in the "documentary," which is called "The Eternal Jew"). That clip comes just before Lorre's from "M", and I remember being very intrigued by the editing, which seems to have been heavily influenced by the Soviets, although it may have been cut by the Nazis to make it seem more degenerate, or something. If that's the case they may have accidentally stumbled on what it took Kuleshov, Pudovkin, Eisenstein, and the like more than a decade to perfect.

Incidentally, HerrSchreck, I just watched a clip (evidently the ending) of "Der Bettler vom Kölner Dom" on YouTube and it, too, looks quite intriguing (as do the extras on the Filmmuseum release). To my continual annoyance, I don't own a region-free DVD player and likely won't be able to get one for some time, so is there any likelihood of a Region A release at a reasonable price?

According to the sleeve, the Filmmuseum release is region-free ("0") though you need to be able to play PAL. Personally, I think a Region 1 release very unlikely, especially with the same extras.

Yeah, that rules me out unfortunately.

Ah, well, so it goes. Thanks for letting me know.

Think 80's early 90's...
I seem to remember a movie where the hero busts in on people doing coke
through a straw and he shoves the straw up the guy's nose and kills him....

I remember seeing bits of a movie at my cousin's house when I was a kid (probably in the late 80s) where 3 or 4 boys had run away from home or something, and at one point crawled under some railroad tracks (I always thought it was to sleep, but in retrospect that seems like an enormously bad idea.) A train comes, and one of them gets stuck and gets run over.

Any clue what this movie was? For some reason I feel like it was decently popular, but I've never encountered it since then.

Just checked out a youtube clip, and don't think that's it. I want to say it was 3 or 4 boys, maybe around the age of 13 (give or take 5 years) and they all crawled under the railroad tracks, between railroad ties. One of the kids was kind of chunky, and he got stuck and couldn't get out.

For all I know, it was some obscure made for TV movie. I only remember it because it was the first brutal movie death I can recall seeing (it wasn't graphic at all, but still, the idea that somebody young could die like that was new to me).

And you're sure it wasn't just a nightmare you had after you saw Stand By Me?

Haha, after watching a clip, you may be right... a lot of the things in that film are very similar to what I remember. Either that or my mind just combined the train scenes from two seperate films together.

Until I hear otherwise, I'll just chock it up to "nightmare". Either that or my older sister made up the scene to scare me (she did that a lot).

I remember watching in school some safety video about not playing near train tracks. One of the vignettes was two kids crossing over a river on some train tracks. Of course one of the kids gets his foot stuck in the tracks, a train comes along, and a whole class of 11-year-olds is traumatized into not being idiots.

Could be that you saw something similar and it became fused in your mind with Stand By Me.

The short you're thinking of Sausage is actually pretty famous. It's called One Got Fat and is narrated by none other than Edward Everett Horton.

No, it definitely wasn't that. Everyone was human, for starters.

Now I have to wonder how two kids getting run over by trains safety shorts were made.
