    Never one to ignore a bandwagon when I see one, I figured I'd contribute to the increasing number of "what film is this?" threads. However, mine is at least marginally more obscure than some. :)

    The film in question was (I think) made somewhere in eastern europe. It would have been quite a long time ago - I was very young when I saw it. It's a science fiction piece about a service that runs time travel tours for tourists - then one of the time ships gets hijacked by some elderly nazis who want to go back in time and change history by giving Hitler the secret of the H-Bomb so that he can win WWII.

    It also includes identical twins, one of whom is a timeship pilot but who chokes on a roll and dies early on, only for the other one to switch places with him; and there was a curious weapon in the form of a hand-held spray which causes the victim to turn green and remain frozen and unconscious for a long period. (As you may have gathered by now, it was, essentially, a rather weird comedy).

    Anyone recognise it?

    Whatever it is, it sounds like one to avoid

    I think the title of the film your after is called: Tomorrow I'll Wake Up and Scald Myself with Tea. It a Czech film called Zítra ráno vstanu a oparím se cajem.

    Here's an IMDB link: http://us.imdb.com/Title?0213322

    And taking a 90 degree turn to the right Edz wonders in...

    Hi all,

    this set me thinking, there is a book I read in school, (well I read several hundred but this one is driving me nuts since I cant remember what it was called and after 15 years of thinking about it I think im going slightly strange),

    It was a time travel story about a professor khan who was working with others on a time machine. When its finished he goes back in time and becomes Khubla Khan and builds Xanadu as a time travelling fortress, I'd love to re read it again, anyone know what its called or the author ?

    Cheers All ,

    we now return you to your regularly scheduled chaos....

    Edz

    "Tomorrow I'll Be scalding Myself with Tea" - great little movie. Have it on tape (I know, but I'm hanging on to it until a DVD appears!) from its one and only showing on the Beeb in the '80s.

    Low budget, but more imagination and style than most of the "sci-fi" drek churned out by Hollywood.
