    We all have some fond childhood memories of certain movies we saw. I saw several movies when I was 7-8yrs of age and would like to hunt it down if possible. They were mainly Russian films I believe and were made in the mid to late 60s to the early 70's. Here are things I remember about each. Hope you can help.
    1) A story about a young woman who has hair of snakes. She's no Medusa and it's not a Greek Mythology. Her mother accidently feel into some underground network and was mated with a snake (I know it sounds stupid). So she was borned with hair of snakes and live with a family of snakes underground. When she was discovered, she was wanted by many. That's all I can remember. I believe it's a Russian film made before 79.
    2) A man with a hi-tech underwater suit made the locals believe that he's half man half fish. He's not doing it to scare people but I believe was a crime fighter of some sort.
    Also believe to be a Russian film made before 1979.
    3) This one is like a fairly tale similar to the likes of Sleepy Beauty and Cinderella. It's about a girl with a gift from "can't remember who." The gift is of 3 seeds or marbles of some sort. Each seed can grant her a wish. The plot of this movie is completely cloudy in my mind. I also think it's a Russian movie made before 79.
    4) The forth one I was looking for came upon me by accident when I was browsing through Fry's. It's called Aladdin's Magic Lamp made in Russia in 1966, on DVD. Because of my encounter with this movie, I believe that 1-3 must be available somewhere or many people have seen it.
    Again, I was very young at the time so the memories are vague. I hope some international community out there have heard or seen these movies.

    Hendrik,
    Thanks for the link. The first one is most useful but the others I had problems. Through the first one I found my answer to movie about the "fishman". It's actually called
    Amphibian Man. Here's the link for anyone who's interested.
