Your help is requested to identify a film I enjoyed many years ago, but the title eludes me.

It was about a couple who arrive in a small town, and one of them (I forget which - husband I think!) is afflicted with amnesia. An inheritance cheque is due but is time-limited; there is something about a vet providing an alibi around the time he treated a pet dog. And it climaxes with the local bank being kept open at night by the police within hours of the cheque's expiry date. Any ideas anybody, please?

Sounds a bit like Doc Hollywood but isn't.

A thriller about depositing a cheque before it expires? Sounds brilliant.

I suppose the thrilling sequel follows directly on, the rollercoaster ride of the clearing cycle.

Sounds like a Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant caper. How old is it? Any idea who was in it?

It does indeed!

The film is clearly Porkys.

Just to reuse this perfectly good thread, does anyone knwo the name of the following film?

A kind of 'red scare' anti-China film from perhaps the late 50s early 60s? Starts with a man in a city street with his ear to the pavement listening and shouting something like 'they're here…'. Turns out there is an underground communist invasion. The Chinese have secretly tunneled into the US. As a result soldiers are sent down and discover the plot and… I can't remember much else about it.

Ooh, does say he something "they are there like ants - I can hear them"

Tinymcsmithy - 05 Nov 2019 21:25:16 (#14 of 22)

Very possibly, yes.

Well I remember that beginning bit, I think. From when I was a kid. But nothing else.

Battle Beneath The Earth?

Tinymcsmithy - 05 Nov 2019 21:30:09 (#17 of 22)

Ah yes, thanks. That sounds like it. British film apparently, yet it looks more like New York.

I have a vague memory of troops in a tunnel and one of them being captured and brainwashed.

Those are the only two scenes I remember.
