Still have never met anyone who heard of one of my favorite movies Local Hero.
It's quirky and understated and very charming and immensely funny. I originally watched it because Pete Riegert was the star and I'd try anything one of the Animal House cast was in. It also has the aurora borealis and possibly a mermaid too mixed into the clash of cultures. An almost perfect little film.
Riegert made 2 movies that fit this thread, this plus Crossing Delancy. Also, the co-star of Local Hero is Burt Lancaster. I know he was a famous movie star from long ago, but I've only seen him in 3 movies from the tail end of his career, this and another under-the-radar movie Atlantic City, (+ Field of Dreams, which is only under the radar if you died before 1989).
I guess that makes 3 under the radar for my 1st contribution lol:
One of John Sayles earliest films & hes one of my favorite story tellers. Two kids from Jersey fall in love. Pretty much a flawless movie if you don't mind that the soundtrack is mostly 70s but the story is set in the 60s (but no hippie BS thankfully).
Vincent Spano and the incomparable, indescribable sex appeal of the hottest girl who ever lived - Rosanna Arquette (before she got old and weird). Dang I had a major school boy infatuation with her.
Have never met anyone who has ever seen this, yet I saw it only once and have never forgotten it.

phillycheesesteak: hmmmm in the attack where he took the girl to the canal on his wedding anniversary...he told her he had to wait for his parents to leave. Sharons parents lived off the canal across greenback lane. Wondering if he was talking about Sharons parents?

elroacho: WTF...looking at james chadwell's facebook page, is he taking a photo of himself in a mirror? is that the same likeness of his tattoo of the girl but outside under a tree on his phone case?

elir: The guy is a very disturbed individual. So glad they were able to save the 9 year old from almost certain death. Hope he is going away for a long time.

elir: Anyone watch Very Scary People episode on GSK? JayB130 thought the interview with the babysitter was interesting. I have not been able to watch it yet. Hoping to get the time later this week.

JayB130: "Very Scary people" is definitely worth watching just for the interview of his daughters babysitter. She provided some new info.
May 8, 2021 3:24:09 GMT
JayB130: She gave an interview to a news magazine but I can't recall off hand which magazine out was. I'll have to look up the article. But, she provided more info in the "Very Scary People" episode.

JayB130: I found it. The original interview of JJD's daughters' babysitter 9Here you go
May 8, 2021 3:28:30 GMT
JayB130: Sorry for all the messages. I'm on a cellphone at work

johnnyhands1: Good link JayB130, gives the hours info for the babysitting times, " a few hours in the evenings, but never overnight" and "when the girls were 6 to 8 years old" (the late eighties?)

elir: something odd about that interview. "DeAngelo was divorced, Jeannie and Bob said, and his two daughters were about 6 to 8 years old at the time their daughter looked after the children" but joe had 3 daughters
May 9, 2021 2:57:45 GMT
elir: where was daughter #3?
May 9, 2021 3:00:08 GMT
johnnyhands1: Maybe the youngest 3rd daughter was with SH and/or family. Or, was the oldest daughter with relatives, friends or evening activity. Oldest maybe babysitter at other times, with neighbors unaware. Neighbor girl might even know all this, but wasn't asked.
