This is a 7 part series of movies from the past so they will be remembered by a new generation that may only know a few.

Out of the millions of movies made in the 20th century there are moments that are imprinted in your mind that can pop up at any time. It can range from a shower scene with haunting music or an actress entering a scene or walking down a staircase or a lawyer arguing a case and no matter what it is there are times it will pop up unexpectedly.
