10 Italian G.P. and woodworker... The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari

11 Not now Josephine... Napoleon

12 Epic movie that needed a midwife... Birth Of A Nation

Not the title I was looking for...

Edit : Checked on IMDB (Technical Specifications) and if you meant the Bela Lugosi version it was an early talkie..

I have two options with #9 - guess another film with Trail in the title (many), or forget Trail - might be misleading myself on that - or chart another course (just saying, no need to comment).

I considered Nosferatu but I discounted it because this version takes place completely in Germany.

Well yes, I agree the clue was a bit misleading. Not an ideal choice of movie for which to set a question.

Edit : Nosferatu's schooner docks at Wisborg, which at least begins with a W... :-rofl2 :-rofl2
