    I've been searching the internet for the title of this film for years now and I just can't find it anywhere! It was such a good film!

    Ok, I don't remember who's in it (I watched it years ago) but it's about an american man who goes to some oriental country and sleeps with some important man's daughter and is then framed for her murder. He's sent to prison and is treated really badly. I remember two scenes from it: there's one bit where he's walking up the stairs with a prison guard and the guard sneaks away while the man continues walking up the stairs. Someone grabs the man and dangles him over the banisters. He thinks they're going to drop him and starts yelling and screaming. And I think then one of his shoes falls off which catches the attention of another guard who rushes to see what's going on. Then the man's pushed down the stairs and he slides down them on his front. Another scene I remember is of the man being forced to strip naked to be put in solitary confinement.

    If someone could help me find the name of that film so that I can buy it that'd be fantastic cos I've searched IMDB and can't find it anywhere!

    Thanks x

    As I said, I can't remember who's actually in it (I watched it years ago when I was much younger and didn't pay attention to actors). I think he had white hair - but that might be me making that up cos that week I also watched a film with Steve Martin in it about his house being overrun by loud party people or something. Having said that it was 'Steve Martin week' on that channel that week... but something tells me it wasn't him in that film.

    Did you see it at the cinema? Any idea how old you were? If you could search the year as well as little bits of description, you're more likely to find it x

    Ok. I went through the WHOLE thing and found nothing. Thanks anyway. I know that not all prison films are on there though cos Dead Man Walking wasn't there even though I assumed that was quite a well known one. Thanks anyway.

    No. I saw it on TV which means it was probably made a bit before then. I don't remember how old I was but it was a fair few years ago (I'm 18 now). I was young enough that I didn't pay attention to actors which is frustrating cos if I knew the actor then this would be so much easier.

    Sounds like this film:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119994/

    The only scene I can remember vividly is Richard Gere running along a wall trying to get to the American embassy, but the naked solitary confinement rings a slight bell.

    EDIT: Here's the trailer if that helps:
