Once the Soviet counterattacks began, the S.S. eliminated all traces of the camp, and the name Belzec faded from the collective conscience.

Jim Garrison's book and Oliver Stone's film based on it, comes the real story...and it's more fantastic the even Stone could contrive! Fiesta Cubana: Live From The Tropicana—" On New Year's Eve 2009, Havana's legendary Tropicana nightclub celebrated its seventieth birthday with colorful revue, and the evening's special guest was the world famous Omara Portuondo. Together with her five man band - which ranges in style from the Cuban guajira, bolero, mambo and son to elements of jazz - the grande dame of traditional Cuban singing offers a delightful contrast to the exuberant joy in dancing shown by the Tropicana Ballet."

How about five of him? Williams, whose on-screen transformations include the redoubtable Mrs. Doubtfire and the always-young Peter Pan of Hook, turns chameleon again in this fanciful look at human history and longing from writer/director Bill Forsyth (Local Hero, Housekeeping). In five distinct yet cleverly interlocked roles, Williams is a cave dweller, a Roman slave, a medieval wayfarer, a Portuguese nobleman shipwrecked in Africa and a modern Manhattanite whose home life has hit the rocks. Each character reaches for survival, love, belonging - for all the things that made humankind draw together in the first place. Each is a human being faced with an unforgettable and universal challenge: Being Human." Bert Rigby, You're a Fool (1989)—"Funnyman filmmaker Carl Reiner, who put Steve Martin, George Burns and John Candy through their comedic paces in one hit movie after another, strikes again with this warmly outrageous musical comedy." Feds (1988)—" Ex-Marine Ellie and shy bookworm Janis are fledgling female Feds who'd make Eliot Ness proud. More importantly, they'll make you laugh. Starring as these plucky FBI recruits are gangbuster comediennes Rebecca de Mornay (Risky Business, Wedding Crashers) and Mary Gross (Saturday Night Live, A Mighty Wind). "Brawny" Ellie and "brainy" Janis go together like ham and eggs, and their lives will be hilariously scrambled during their hilarious, hectic training. Janis must learn physicality and intimidation techniques, while Ellie needs a guiding hand to help get through the intricacies of constitutional law. So in true buddy fashion, they'll help each other prepare for the academy's final exam: a 'simulated crime exercise' that chauvinistic lunkheads think will separate the men from the girls." In The Mood (1987)—" It's 1944 and Americans are in the mood for something to take their minds off the challenges of World War II - something like a juicy sex scandal. At the same time, naive, 15-year-old Sonny Wisecarver (Patrick Dempsey) is in the mood for love with two attractive older women. And suddenly Sonny is grabbing headlines from Hitler in everybody's Daily Bugle. Dempsey (Dr. Derek Shepherd of Grey's Anatomy) shows he was McDreamy from a very young age in this goofy, funny and wholly endearing comedy based on the true story of the teen who created a media frenzy as the Woo Woo Kid." I like to think Dempsey was at his most McDreamy in Loverboy. Island Of Love (1963)—" Take three of the funniest, cleverest actors in the movies plop them on a gorgeous, real-life Greek isle and add a feverish plot that involves an ingenious scam, big money, lighthearted romance and a lisping gangster and you have Island of Love. On the lam from the mob boss he fleeced, a conman (Robert Preston in a flim-flam mode recalling his triumph in The Music Man) and his sardonic pal (Tony Randall) end up on Paradeisos. The two Americans promptly hoodwink the world into believing the place is an ancient lost island of love. Tourists flock in and fortunes are made - until the boss (Walter Matthau) shows up, his trigger finger twitching." Second Sight (1989)—" Four-time Emmy Award-winner John Larroquette (The John Larroquette Show, Richie Rich) and Bronson Pinchot (Perfect Strangers, The First Wives Club) star as a private investigator and a super-psychic who operate a paranormal detective agency in this wild comedy. When the pair is enlisted to solve the kidnapping of the Cardinal of Boston, the case takes a bizarre twist as the normally cooperative spirit world runs amok." Seven Minutes in Heaven (1985)—" Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber, TV's Picket Fences) and Polly Draper (thirtysomething) star in this gentle, sensitive and often humorous story of a three young teenagers struggling with their parents, friends and futures." Tarzan and the Great River (1967)—" An ancient killer cult lives...and many people die! Under the leadership of charismatic Bacuna (Rafer Johnson), the murderous tribe has resurfaced, pillaging Amazon River villages, kidnapping inhabitants and enslaving them at Bacuna's secret enclave. Can Tarzan stop this relentless reign of terror?" Tarzan and the Jungle Boy (1968)—" Tragedy left a boy orphaned and alone, forced to fend for himself in the jungle wilds. Over the years he survived and thrived, growing in strength, skill and mastery. Sound like a hero you know? He's the elusive teen the natives call Jukaro, and only someone who's been through the same improbable experience can track and find him." Tarzan and the Valley of Gold (1965)—"When authorities ask Tarzan what he'll need to pursue a crime kingpin and his commandos through the wilds of Mexico, the Ape-Man requests only a good knife, a sturdy rope and some soft leather to fashion into a loincloth. 'Casual but practical,' he explains to the astonished officials." Tarzan Goes To India (1962)—"No need to land the plane when Tarzan flies to India. Just fly over an inland lake and the loin-clothed hero will leap into its blue depths! Jock Mahoney, who two years earlier portrayed Tarzan's foe in Tarzan the Magnificent, makes his splashy debut as Tarzan in this tale about the Ape-Man's rescue of elephants who will be doomed when a newly built dam unleashes its waters. John Guillermin (Tarzan's Greatest Adventure, The Towering Inferno) directs, combining colorful subcontinent locales with battles large and thunderous (massive bull elephants), small and fierce (cobra versus mongoose), cunning and treacherous (Tarzan against human foes). No matter where the jungle, there is but one jungle lord!" Tarzan's Three Challenges (1963)—" "No stranger from Africa can turn the course of our destiny." But never underestimate a stranger named Tarzan (Jock Mahoney). Over miles and obstacles, he will lead the young heir to Thailand's spiritual throne to his ordination and undo warlord Khan's (Woody Strode) plot to secure the title for his son. First however, the Ape-Man must prove to the heir that he is Tarzan by passing tests of skill, strength and wisdom. Ahead lies a still greater challenge: Tarzan vs. Khan in a bungee-jumping, sword-clanging, flame-dancing death duel!" Trojan War (1997)—" Jennifer Love Hewitt (The Tuxedo, I Know What You Did Last Summer) and Will Friedle (TV's Batman Beyond, TV's Boy Meets World) headline this comedy about a high school student's desperate quest for a condom so he can consummate a long hoped for encounter. His wisecracking female best friend offers a third side to this love triangle." ...AND MORE MOVIES Best Man (1964)—" Henry Fonda and Cliff Robertson square off as political adversaries during a presidential primary in this sardonic, insightful drama that brings out the best, and worst, in American politics." The Caretakers (1963)—" In this emotionally charged drama, Joan Crawford portrays a headstrong nurse who clashes with a crusading psychiatrist (Robert Stack) over the proper care and treatment of a mentally ill patient."

The previous inhabitants of the cottage are the Tuckers, who have since taken up residence at a nearby farm. Mabs Tucker (Miranda Richardson) is mother to three ethereal daughters, though her desire to have a son is evident from the first moment she meets her new neighbors. Something about the Tuckers just doesn't seem right to Liffrey and her suspicious beau, and when Liffrey becomes pregnant the mood around their cottage becomes downright ominous. It seems that Mabs' mother Molly (Rita Tushingham) has been dabbling in magic in order to ensure herself a grandson, and soon it's revealed that eldest daughter Audrey (Leona Igoe) possesses some strange, otherworldly powers.
