I know what it is, but am sure that other people can get it. We don't want to end up going back and forth with each other forever, without giving other people turns.

I will be away for a few hours, so to keep the game going, I will give the answer in this spoiler box.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Now, you aren't just looking to get the answer are you!? May you fall in a pit with snakes, if that is the case. In fact, this movie was the first to have snakes on a plane.

Okay, I'll tell you, but only if you keep your eyes shut while those around you perish.

One of the Indiana Jones movies, probably the first.
Seeing as how I deny the existence of most of the franchise except for the first you'd think I know the name of it...

Yes. The spoiler thing wasn't as great an idea as I thought, because you can't guess twice.

Not sure what you mean. I didn't look at the spoiler.

I was trying to remind the last poster the actual name of the movie he was guessing.

How about an actual synopsis, for a change?

A poor boy gets a job working for his rich uncle and ends up falling in love with two women; one that he met at work and one that he meets at a party after his promotion at the company.
As the family gathers for a lakeside vacation, both women show up and Actor X discovers that his first girlfriend is pregnant. So he plots to kill her, but his plan to get away after the murder doesn't quite work.
He is arrested and his crime is revealed in court; he is found guilty and is sentenced to death. He meets his lover one last time inside the prison, they kiss, she leaves, and then he is escorted to the electric chair.

Synopsis:

This movie is a satirical black comedy film. It is the story of a Hollywood film studio executive who murders an aspiring screenwriter he believes is sending him death threats. The movie contains many film references and Hollywood in-jokes, with 65 celebrities making cameo appearances in the film.

More hints, if really necessary (I suspect, probably not):

Spoiler (click to reveal)

At the end of th movie, the film studio executive receives a pitch over the phone from a man who reveals himself as the real anonymous writer. The man pitches an idea about a studio executive who kills an aspiring screenwriter and gets away with murder. Impressed, the executive gives the anonymous writer a deal, if he can guarantee a happy ending in which the executive lives happily with the dead screenwriter's widow.

More hints:

The film received three nominations at the Academy Awards: Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Editing. The film also won two Golden Globes, Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and Best Actor – Comedy or Musical.

Other awards: BAFTA Award for Best Direction; Bodil Award for Best Non-European Film; Prix de la mise en scène; Italian National Syndicate of Film; Journalists Award for Best Foreign Director; London Film Critics' Circle Award for Director of the Year; New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Director; Southeastern Film Critics Association Award for Best Director.

From Wikipedia:

A five-time nominee of the Academy Award for Best Director and an enduring figure from the New Hollywood era, the director of this movie was considered a "maverick" in making films with a highly naturalistic but stylized and satirical aesthetic, unlike most Hollywood films. He is consistently ranked as one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers in American cinema.

A peasant travels with a famous writer, and his disregard for rules and tradition earn him the respect of an English monarch while a French general seeks to diminish him.

Not a very good clue then. hmmm. The movie is based on a story by the author, who has a gambling problem in the movie. The soundtrack is from the wrong time period (a few hundred years off) but is integrated into the movie in a fun way.
