Missing is a 1982 film directed by Costa Gavras, starring Jack Lemmon, Sissy Spacek, Melanie Mayron, John Shea and Charles Cioffi. It is based on the true story of American journalist Charles Horman, who disappeared in the bloody aftermath of the Chilean coup of 1973 that deposed President Salvador Allende. It depicts Horman's father and wife searching in vain to determine his fate. The film is based on a book first published under the title The Execution of Charles Horman: An American Sacrifice (1978) by Thomas Hauser (later republished under the title Missing in 1982). The score is by the Greek electronic composer Vangelis.

3 Women is a 1977 film directed by Robert Altman, starring Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek, and Janice Rule. The story came directly from a dream Altman had, which he did not fully understand himself, but nonetheless adapted into a treatment, intending to film without a script. 20th Century Fox greenlit the project on Altman's reputation, but a script was completed before filming, although, as with most Altman films, the script was just a "blueprint" for what would be said and seen on-screen.
The minimal plot involves two women whose personalities are in sharp contrast when they first meet and move in together. The third woman of the titular three, is a key supporting character -- a mural artist who lives at the same apartment building. The events take place in a small desert community typical of those found east of Los Angeles. For obvious reasons the film has a dream-like quality, focusing more on behavior, mood and mystery than on plot devices.

The music, a mixture of a traditional orchestral score and a more contemporary style, was by Marvin Hamlisch.

At first he receives a warm welcome as he bumps into friends and acquaintances from the past, mostly middle-class, affluent couples enjoying life in luxurious, semi-rural homes. However, as the day wears on, he begins...,
