childhood movies/books

starting up a page to document my re-discovery of nice movies and books I saw/read during childhood.  One of the things about immigration is that you lost many things behind.  Most of what i saw/read was of course translated into vietnamese, so i have no clue how to find items here in the US.  thanks to internet, many people on my same boat are putting things together, hence i can now slowly re-collecting them into this corner.

Plot: In the hospital in Rome, Italy, an old Russian emigrant woman dies. Dying, she tells her granddaughter that she has hidden her treasures in Leningrad under the lion. Unfortunately, beside her granddaughter she was heard also by a solid doctor, 2 male nurses, an Italian mafioso and a hobbling man. After that they all fly to Russia by the same flight (of course none of them tells the others that he’s flying to Russia for the treasures). Having some adventures in the airplane because of mafiosi, they all arrive to Leningrad and begin to dig under every lion statue in the city.
