A trio of late 80's (though possibly early 90's) movies I am trying to figure out:

1) A drama, where a guy is trying to escape from a prison or institution and is walking through a long hall with pipes. He digs something (like a screwdriver) out of ashes in the bottom of a furnace or oven or maybe it was just some dirt. I think he puts on a dark olive green jacket and walks outside at night where there is a chain link fence and asphalt. I want to say the title is "return to hell" "return from ..." or "escape" but I really have no idea. I thought the guy might be working in a kitchen. I also think he leaves through steel framed glass doors at one point, in a disguise including his dark jacket.

2) A time period movie - a comedy I believe - set in the 20's or the 40's or something. There is a cute blonde woman eating chocolates in a hotel room. The man she is seeing does something to make her angry and she shoots at him with a crossbow. I think there is also another scene where she pouts and flashes her underwear from a fur coat while standing at the back of a train as it is pulling out of the station.

3) This one might have been x-rated or it might have been a comedy, not sure. There is some guy that has a little black box with a switch on it that drives women wild - like a universal aphrodisiac. I think there is a scene with him driving a speedboat.

Hi there anders.

1) I'm thinking that this might be a scene from "Toy Soldiers" but I wouldn't swear to it.

2) No clue - sorry

3) "Le declic" AKA "The Turn-On"
Here's the imdb link:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097252/

Imdb lists The Turn On as a thriller, but I remember watching part of this in the mid to late 90's and it really seemed more like a comedy; the plot was very silly.

Wow, major thanks for your fast response.

1 looks like a good guess - I'm doubtful, but I'm going to have to rent it and find out.

2 is definitely victor/victoria.

3 seems to be correct as well. I only saw the preview of this, and I think it might have been a dubbed version.
