How old is this? Was it in english? Any names you remember or anything else?
It was a USA movie. In terms of time, it was approximately 30 years ago.
I do not remember the actors. At some point I thought it was Elliot Gold but I did a search in  the movies he did and I could not find it so I assumed it was my mistake.
I know is probably very hard to get help with it but I just thought to give it a try.
