LOL - I haven't even seen it - just the tv doco. I really admire that man.

I just thought about it and decided if it is post 50s what aeroplane movies and Scully was the only one I could think of other than Air Force One - no book for Airforce One Scully has a book but it was written by Scully so it wouldn't be called "Scully".

So I just thought I would have a go and try it.

So, ok

Movie, no book (or musical) - Boy meets girl

Hm. There's only about 150-thousand movies that could be described that way. I wonder which it is? Hint, please.

Clues: it is a romantic movie, made in the 90s and you won't need a medium to work out who the lead actress is.

I never saw Ghost. I didn't know it was a musical. Your clue was interesting though, because, not only does Whoopi Goldberg play a psychic in the film, but, medium and Demi (as in, Demi Moore- the lead actress,) both mean, one-half.

Oh well.

less cryptic clues: released 1992 written by Quentin Tarantino. Main female actor starred in tv's Medium.

Had lots of well known actors in it.

Maybe you haven't seen it so the other clues wouldn't be much help.

No. Clues: It is set in the 18th-century. In the film version, the actor who plays the title role was nominated for an Oscar.
