Just go to the level above your movies folder. Then select drag and drop the folder on window panel. Where you deleted it from.

Looks like I did not understand the nature of your problem. What I thought you were talking about is when you open up a window. On the left side top you get your mounted disk drives. On the lower left you get your desktop, home folder, applications, documents, movies, music and pictures.

It appears that is not the case here or is it?

I had to look at the Apple site to get a better look. Some one working with leopard will have to help you with this. Since I don't see what you see.

The easy way is to open Finder preferences - go to the sidebar tab and put a check next to All Movies

If it is not there..

In Finder, navigate to...

System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app

right click on Finder.app and select 'Show Package Contents'

Keep going now to...
Contents/Resources/CannedSearches

There you will find your 'All Movies' plus a few other searches not shown in the preferences window.
Just drag n drop the ones you want.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
