GUEST,Joe_F BS: Unforgettable Scenes In Movies (123* d) RE: BS: Unforgettable Scenes In Movies 19 May 06


ObSongs: In _Paths of Glory_, a bunch of rowdy French soldiers invade a German tavern. They are not polite to the pretty barmaid, and it begins to look nasty. But they stand her up on a table & ask her for a song. She begins to sing "Der Treue Husar", and soon all the soldiers are humming along. I cannot even recollect the scene without crying.

I found out the name of the song because it was on a CD, and I inquired about it on rec.music.folk, and a German looked it up for me. He, too, had heard it in the movie, long before.
