Grab Bag in Chains! Mystery Photos #106-110!


Welcome back to the ol' Arcana for another round of Grab Bag Goodies!

As outlined in previous installments, I purchased a few hundred promotional stills that have had their title captions trimmed off. Some I recognize, most I don't. It's up to my faithful readership to help me decipher what they're promoting. Hell, solve enough of 'em and maybe I'll send you some of the duplicates I received!

For those not familiar with promo stills, they occasionally carry a helpful hint or two. Some are branded with a cataloging code of letters and numbers which usually signify an abbreviation of the title (sometimes a retitling) and, if you're especially lucky, maybe the year of release (not to be confused with year of production). And that's pretty much all we have to go on...

The twenty-second batch is below; let's see what you've got!

 #106: No Markings!

#107: WN-14 

#108: RN-10 

#109: R-5
It looks like we have another one for Bickford Webber's The Runaway aka Runaway, Runaway (1971). The film stars William Smith as a detective trying to track down an AWOL teen who's been shacking up in a commune; naturally, LSD freak-outs and nude beach runs follow. It doesn't appear to have gotten a VHS or DVD release Stateside, though boots seem to be available. (See also: #54.)

#110: No Markings!

  1. Can #109 be THE RUNAWAY (same flick as #54)? I've never seen it, so I don't know offhand.

    If you look carefully, you can see the crew reflected in the mirror.
