I can't think of one with the exception of a movie that was probably only popular and well viewed in a relatively small section of the Southeastern US, "Thunder Road" starring Robert Mitchum and his son (who in the movie, played his younger brother).

Dogfight is an excellent film no one but me saw.

They separate into the city to attempt to find dates. After a few women reject his advances, Birdlace ducks into a coffee shop, where he encounters Rose, a waitress, on her break, practicing her guitar. She is not particularly "ugly", but rather plain, shy and awkward. Birdlace attempts to charm her, complimenting her on her guitar playing, and inviting her to a party. She is suspicious of his motives, but decides to accept his invitation.

Neither of these are really obscure, but I'm surprised by how few have seen them: first, "The Man Who Would Be King". Sean Connery and Michael Caine, fantastic story by Kipling, gorgeous scenery, what could be better?

Second, and limited only to the subset of people who like Gilbert and Sullivan: "The Pirates of Penzance" starring Kevin Kline as the pirate king, and Linda Ronstadt (!) as Maybelle. It got hung up in a distribution battle and was little shown in the states, though it did eventually appear on cable.

Being from southeastern KY., I can identify with Todd re / the movie Thunder Road. It was about hauling moonshine--Robt. Mitchum did a great job in his role The song from the movie was quite popular also.
I can remember part of it:
" There was thunder, thunder over thunder road-- thunder was his engine and White Lightning ( nick name for moonshine ) was his load-- there was moonshine, moonshine to quench the devils thirst--the law they swore they'd get him but the devil got him first ." ---Thank you--thank you verr much!

Mitchum had a specially built '57 Ford outfitted to haul the " shine " that would out run anything the law had--good movie and I had forgotten all about it until I saw Todds post--thanks Todd--now that song is stuck in my head !!

Many years ago I saw a movie called ( Lemonaide Joe ). It was quite silly and I have never heard anyone mention it.

How about [ Dad poor dad, moma's hung you in the closet and now I'm so sad ] ?
I saw this in 1967 when I was participating in the Southeast Asia War Games.

My favorite obscure movie would be:

Three Strangers

I happen on in many years ago on TV. It stars Sidney Greenstreet, Geraldine Fitzgerald, and Peter Lorre. Great actors and a good plot.
