    Hi there,

    This old movie has been on my mind for some time.
    It was a strange sci-fi/fantasy/adventure with a little girl (I think I remember dirty-blonde hair and a blue dress).
    She was (abducted? lost?) and found herself in a room. And. Then long sock puppets (blue and red and green ones) chased after her.
    There was a tin (sardine?) can with water/brine in it. The keys were in there. She took the keys out and put them in her mouth and made a funny face.
    She was trying to escape.
    I'm not sure if there was any aliens/outerspace involved.
    I just remember the socks and the keys.
    I'm gonna go crazy. If I don't find the name of this movie.

    Please. Help. Me.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    The socks are definitely from this movie.
    I can't believe it's such a popular title, and I couldn't figure it out.
    Then again, I only watched the movie when I was about 4 or 5 years old.
    And this movie is older than I am.

    Cheers,
    Bah Humbug!

    hi.
    I'm also looking for a film from (i guess) the early 90s, maybe older. i watched it with a friend around 1993 or so. all i remember is: there was an old man in a retirement home and he always dreamed of a door he should not open and an unknown old woman talking to him. some day this old woman is brought to the retierment home in a wheelchair and can't talk. that's all i remember (yeah i was young.....). i have no idea if this movie was good, but i found it quite scary.
    i hope someone can help me. would be nice to refresh some good old memories. thanks!
