Something about that makes me think 'Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow' but I know that can't be right...

Can it?

It is a very interesting movie. I hope that I've just made these screenshots obscure, instead of picking a movie no one here has seen. No matter, if I have to, I can really start to dish out some clues. Anyway, here's the next screenshot:

It has to be a Russian film of some sort.

It is a foreign film. Not Russian, but close.

OK, clues are going to start coming more heavily now. If someone reading this thread had seen it, I would have expected them to recognize it by now (b0rsuk?). 4th screenshot is attached.

Bonus Clue:

Alice Smith
Barbara Smith
Carrie Smith
Deborah Smith
Erin Smith
Fawn Smith
Ginny Smith
Hilda Smith
Irene Smith

The above refers to an organization in the film, and additionally a the domain name of a website devoted to the film.

P.S. Please PM me if this is getting irritating, and Iíll step aside for the next person.

I personally have not seen this film, I think I would have remembered it if I did. No need to step aside for the next person, we've all had a hard time solving something at one point or another, doesn't matter what game it is. This just makes it a good challange.

You can also post a screenshot with enough information in it for people to Google the movie. (A bit of text; a recognizable actor; that sort of thing.)

Well, searching the IMDb for "Smith" spits out a Georgian/Soviet Union comedy named "Mchedeli" because of it's international title of "Smith" - would that be it?

np: Markus Guentner - Donaunebel (Pop Ambient 2002)

No, it's not Mchdeli. And searching for Smith won't lead you to it, but the Smith is important...

That's my next screenshot. I'll post it later today if necessary, but now I'm intrigued to see if someone will figure out the bonus clue.

Yeah, well - if you don't have enough mod points left modding will just do nothing. Don't forget that adding that third rank point actually costs 3 mod points...

np: Yoko Kanno - The End Of All You'll Know (Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex OST 3)

What system? And a capture of what? DVD? VHS? Live TV?

For DVD, the DVD playing application of your choice should come with a screenshot function.

For VHS & TV you need either a graphics card with video in and a tuner/VCR or a TV card. Again, the software for that should have a screen shooting facility...

In case of an emergency - you could try using a digital camera to take a picture of the screen, but that should only be used as the very last measure...

For everything else, there's probably an image to be found at images.google.com...

There's also several computer softwares that'll do it. I know that back when I was a PC user, my copy of PowerDVD was able to take screengrabs, and on Mac, there's a little program just called 'DVD Capture' that interfaces with DVD Player and takes screengrabs through that.

OK, there we go. Eventually I'll get an actual DVD player installed on this. But instead, well, you waited all this time for the attached file, and let's face it, it isn't much.

But it's one of my five favorite movies, and it's an important prop. Plus, the legs of a terrific (and recently deceased) actor.

That's the ugly wagon wheel coffee table from When Harry Met Sally. The deceased actor would then be Bruno Kirby. A great loss.

I used to have a coffee grinder lamp that was that ugly. My wife eventually prevailed on me to throw it out...
