Alright so apparently there is a film Called The Traveller apparently something of a video nasty made sometime during the 80's but I've struck out on IMDb. The little information I have on it is quote "he was a mummy dug up and they found gems which they took. then he kill them as he reclaimed them". Could it be known by a different name? Something of a long shot but what the hell.|
Oh btw initially I thought it might be Enemy Mine BUT THAT TURNED OUT NOT TO BE THE CASE.
Name that film

Hey this is all your fault!
WHY IS IT ALWAYS MY FAULT?!
I typed 'The Traveller film 80's' into Google and found this thread. Clever.
It was one of those early b-movie video nasties from the 80's. Doubt anyone will be able to get it now, as most were destroyed.
Well Cannibal Holocaust is still available and it doesn't get any nastier than that. I'm sure IMDb would list it if it was a real thing.
Film - probably 80's although anywhere between about '75 and '95 is possible.
I thought it starred Richard Dreyfuss, but I've just checked his wiki, and it doesn't seem to be him.
Guy who works in the advertising industry has an accident, or a breakdown or something, and ends up in a care home with the usual Hollywood-ised 'loveable but harmless nutters and eccentrics'.
They start coming up with plain speaking advertising slogans, like 'Volvo - They're a bit dull, but they're very safe.'
I think he gets his job back, or goes on to start his own ad agency or something - I don't remember.
There's an obvious answer, but I've checked, and it turns out it's not 'Enemy Mine'.
I was amazed, too!
It was a Dudley Moore film iirc.
Ahh, Crazy People according to IMDB.

Yeah, IIRC one of the characters from the Dream Team worked in advertising and now thinks he's Jesus or something?

Is that the one that ends with them making a slightly racist Sony advert?

Oh I need this thread…
I have no idea when this film was made but it was (I think) black and white. It’s probably pre-80s by a good margin. It’s super fuzzy in my memory and it may have merged with several other films.
Anyway it’s WWI with a young German (almost certain he was German) chap in the trenches, who dreams of being a pilot. I believe there is a bit of a fast forward and he becomes a test pilot/super ace, and everyone else in the test pilot school thing are assholes for some reason but he just wants to fly his damn plane. Anyway, I remember him flying under a bridge. Or into it. Or something.
I’ve been trying to remember the name of this damn film for a decade. I remember seeing it once as a kid and it’s just stuck with me. Or my mind made it up.
