Bogus (1996)
Seven-year-old Albert was raised in a shiny world of sequins and show girls, surrounded by the fantasy of Las Vegas. But when his single mother is suddenly killed in a car accident, Albert is sent from Vegas to live with his mother''s childhood best friend whom he never knew existed, Harriet Franklin, in the decidedly not fantastic city of Newark, New Jersey. As if raising a newfound "son" isn''t trying enough for the fiercely independent Harriet, Albert has brought along a friend--an imaginary one that no one else can see--a stupendous, gentle giant of a Frenchman named Bogus. As Albert and Harriet struggle to get used to each other, Harriet''s world of reality is brought face-to-face with Albert''s world of imagination. Acting as part teacher, part playmate and part guardian angel, Bogus leads Albert--and eventually Harriet--through an enlightening experience of imagination and trust.

When asked about it, Morse passes on the oral history and guide to fooling around without your wife finding out.

Between pieces of advice, we follow Matheau as he begins to prepare for his big affair.
18.

A British naval officer has a brief affair with a woman in England and never knows that she bears him a son. 20 years later the boy is on a ship under his command when he is tracking a German Raider.

19.
Decision Before Dawn (1951) as Producer
WWII is entering its last phase: Germany is in ruins, but does not yield. The US army lacks crucial knowledge about the German units operating on the opposite side of the Rhine, and decides to send two German prisoners to gather information. The scheme is risky: the Gestapo retains a terribly efficient network to identify and capture spies and deserters. Moreover, it is not clear that "Tiger", who does not mind any dirty work as long as the price is right, and war-weary "Happy", who might be easily betrayed by his feelings, are dependable agents. After Tiger and another American agent are successfully infiltrated, Happy is parachuted in Bavaria. His duty: find out the whereabouts of a powerful German armored unit moving towards the western front.
