Holy smokes… what a website. It’s nothing short of genius that you thought to create a place where people could share the one very special thing that they all have in common…. terrifying childhood trauma.
Here’s my mystery trauma. When I was around six or seven years old (late ’70s) I remember seeing a small portion of a film that haunts me to this day. All I remember is that there was a very fat, bald, British man, possibly with a monocle, who may or may not have been investigating a crime. The scene that has stuck with me is a man walking into an industrial grade kitchen (the kind you may find in a hotel) that has been shut down for the night. With most of the lights off, he notices the red glow of one of the ovens which should not have been on. He opens the door, and a woman’s arm tips and falls out. Yikes. Here are some other quick notes:
- The oven was not close to the ground, but rather at eye level. I think.
- I believe there was a hard cut from that scene to a shot of something resembling the U.N. Assembly. I distinctly remember flags and a very large room.
- I recall the British man having a vague resemblance to JOHN HOUSEMAN only much larger. He was also rather feminine.
- I don’t believe this movie was a horror. I’m certain that it was a thriller in the vain of AGATHA CHRISTIE. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if it was somehow related to her writings.
Any help would be largely appreciated, people! I’m more than ready to put this one to bed.
UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Kudos to Reader EegahInc for solving it with WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT THE CHEFS OF EUROPE?
