UPDATE (05 July 2012):
Meanwhile Alexander Rabitsch correctly guessed that wine was spilled, but the movie isn’t ‘Three Strangers’ (Negulesco 1946) as he assumed (but he got damn close). Because of that here’s another screencap—the scene leading up to the spilling of wine:

    Blood, maybe? Need more hints …

  • Alexander Rabitsch Tuesday, 26th June 2012 at 05:23

    Oil or fuel?

  • zephyrin_xirdal Tuesday, 26th June 2012 at 23:11

    No, it’s neither oil nor fuel. And it also ain’t blood—although the spilling of the fluid is closely connected to a homicide.

    Ink!?!

  • Alexander Rabitsch Wednesday, 27th June 2012 at 06:23

    hydrogen cyanide?

  • Alhambra Wednesday, 27th June 2012 at 08:19

    Some kind of acid?

  • zephyrin_xirdal Thursday, 28th June 2012 at 16:41

    Sorry, but still no—it’s neither ink nor hydrogen cyanide aka prussic acid or any other kind of acid. Your way of thinking is way too twisted ;) Here’s a hint: Someone was lured to a place and this place is connected with the fluid.

    Liquor?

    • zephyrin_xirdal Thursday, 28th June 2012 at 22:16

      Close …

  • Alexander Rabitsch Thursday, 28th June 2012 at 20:12

    Wine?

    • zephyrin_xirdal Thursday, 28th June 2012 at 22:16

      Wine it is! Now, what’s the movie? ;)

  • Alexander Rabitsch Friday, 29th June 2012 at 06:46

    >>Three strangers<< … just a shot in the dark ….

    “Notorious”?

    • zephyrin_xirdal Sunday, 8th July 2012 at 16:17

      No, sorry, it is not ‘Notorious’ (Hitchcock 1946).

  • Alexander Rabitsch Sunday, 8th July 2012 at 05:38

    ain´t that peter lorre up on this pic?

    • zephyrin_xirdal Sunday, 8th July 2012 at 16:18

      No, it’s not Peter Lorre in the picture, but Mr. Lorre is in the movie!

  • Alhambra Sunday, 8th July 2012 at 19:06

    ‘The Chase’?

    • zephyrin_xirdal Sunday, 8th July 2012 at 21:36

      Congratulations—’The Chase’ (Ripley 1946) it is! :)
