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.

After Katherine Hepburn has helped pick all the leaches off him in "African Queen", Humphrey Bogart has to get back into the leech infested waters if the boat is ever going to get through the swamp.

I have bad memories of a childhood vacation at Leech Lake Minnesota, so that scene is a metaphor for having the courage to face unpleasant tasks that must be done.

The final scene of Von Stroheim's masterpiece, "Greed," filmed on location in the Mojave desert. Every scene was filmed on location, Von Stroheim being a perfectionist and wanting to be completely faithful to the novel the movie was about; McTeague, by Frank Norris. An unforgettable, haunting final scene in an unforgettable, great movie.

The bar scene in Good Will Hunting where Will show's up the snobbish history grad student who's trying to impress an attractive woman (played by Minnie Driver, who becomes Will's girlfriend) by embarrassing Will's friend.

The toll booth in the desert in Blazing Saddles, and the already mentioned campfire scene. When first shown on tv, the farting noises were deleted, making hat scene incomprehensible.

There's a new one now. George Clooney's "Good Night, and Good Luck". "Ed Murrow" says, "The terror is in this room". And the close-up at the end of one of "Ed"s broadcasts when the mouth tightens and the eyebrow quivers.
John Henry Faulk (daddy) had a great story: when he was a kid, his mama was a butter-&-egg woman(sold those items to folks further out in the country without chickenyards or dairy cows). One day, she's out in the barnyard doing maintenance work--raking gravel, etc. Daddy and a friend are playing Texas rangers/deputy sherriffs on hoehandle horses with thumb/firstfinger 6shooters, racing around causing a ruckus. They chase a bad guy into the henhouse with appropriate whoops & hollers. A large blacksnake, enjoying the egg bounty in the upper tier of nest boxes, gets curious about all the fuss, raises up head and upper body to look over at the boys. 'Bout then there gets to be a boy-shaped hole in the side of the henhouse, and 2 not-so-big kids are scrambling around in the dust & gravel yelling scared. My grandmother helps them up, brushes them off, digs gravel out of their palms, tut-tuts, and allows as how she thought she was under the protection of the great Texas Rangers(lawmen, not sports team) and Travis County sherriff's posse. "Don't you know a black snake can't hurt you", she asks them. "No, ma'am, Miz Faulk", responds daddy's friend. "but he can scare you so bad, he make you hurt yo'seff." Molly Ivins tells this story almost as good as daddy. If you're ever around her, ask her if she remembers it and will tell it.    Tw

There have been lots of good scenes that sort of hang in memory, many of which have been mentioned. A couple of movies that I didn't see were "High Noon" (Gary Cooper) and "The Villain" (Kirk Douglas). Neither had just one scene that stood out, but each had several memorable ones.

I'd have to go back to early in the thread to second "Bad Day at Black Rock" as a most unforgettable movie. I saw it first at a fairly young age, and like most I remembered the fight scene. Perhaps I just had a better understanding of "how things were" when I saw it again - perhaps 10 years ago - when it really sank in why Tracy was in Black Rock. I will continue to consider it one of the most memorable movies ever, but for perhaps slightly more mature(?) reasons now.

There's an obscure little (and short--I think maybe a half hour) French film by Chris Marker: La Jetee.

The entire film is told in black and white stills, and narrated.
The memorable scene is when the protagonist sees the woman he loves. The still showing her sleeping face gradually becomes a movie, and you notice her breathing while she sleeps. Doesn't sound like much, but in context, wow!

[La Jetee was later remade as a color film by Alan Resnais--a terrible film, a terrible waste-- called "J'Etaime, j'taime." And it was also the basis of the Terry Gilliam movie, "The 12 Monkeys."]

I like the scene in Green Card when Georges (Gerard Depardieu (sp?)) plays the piano at a party. He sits for awhile, then suddenly starts banging the keys, then slows down and asks for translation, from the host, to a ballad in french, about saving the trees for the children. Funny scene.

A tear jerker for me was in Project-X with Matthew Broderick and Helen Hunt. The scene where they put the old chimpanzee into a test aircraft area, testing to see what happens to pilots after a nuclear explosion. You watch the old chimp start to die. If I remember right the chimp smoked cigarettes and he wanted a smoke. Anyway, very emotional part of the movie for me.

The Wizard of Oz seems to be well represented here.

Perhaps it was the age we were when we first saw it?

The scene where the wicked witch vanished and all was left of her was a pile of cloths - was the cause of many childhood nightmares.

I suspect it would take a lot more to scare today's children.

Two Scenes From the Flim 'Cinema Paradiso'

Salvatore (Toto) returns to his Town after staying away for many Years. His Mother shows him to his old bedroom in the Family Home and opens the door, She steps back smiling and he walks into his Room and travels back in time:)

The final scene of this Film has lived with me for Years.

One of the best exchanges between two characters happens in this Film and it goes like this:)

Alfredo: Living here day by day, you think it's the center of the world. You believe nothing will ever change. Then you leave.. a year, two years. When you come back, everything's changed. The thread's broken. What you came to find isn't there. What was yours is gone. You have to go away for a long time... many years... before you can come back and find your people. The land where you were born. But now, no. It's not possible. Right now you're blinder than I am.
Salvatore (Toto): Who said that? Gary Cooper? James Stewart? Henry Fonda? Eh?
Alfredo: No, Toto. Nobody said it. This time it's all me. Life isn't like in the movies. Life... is much harder.

The inspired scene near the end of The Graduate when Dustin Hoffman is running to the church to try and stop the wedding, he just runs and runs, and never seems to get any closer to the camera. Then the great shots in the church of him pressed against the glass looking down on the ceremony with the light behind him, and screaming her name, the expressions of hatred on the face of Mrs Robinson, you can see her mouthing obscenities at him but you can't hear what she's saying. Then when he uses a large crucifix to jam the door shut, and they run off, and catch a bus, with her still wearing the wedding dress.
It is just pure drama/entertainment from beginning to end.

The scene in Silverado where Kevin Costner (sigh) is checking out the saloon for the bad guys and realizes they are sneaking up on him from two different directions. He shrugs, loosens his shoulders, waits until the proper moment, then draws both six-shooters, aims each in the opposite direction, and shoots both the bad guys without even looking. The absolute cocky confidence was wonderful.

And yes, I even liked Water World and The Postman, not to mention several great sexy scenes from Bull Durham!

It would have to be Japanese or maybe Korean restaurant staff doing that. The Chinese have no trouble pronouncing the letter "l", because that sound is common in Chinese language. It's the Japanese who have great difficulty with it.

Dianne Weist discovering the topiary world of Edward Scissorhands for the first time. And the last scene, with Edward doing the ice sculptures, which always makes me cry.

From "Cat Ballou" - Kid, your eyes!, (Marvin):What's wrong with 'em?
They're all red and blood shot. (Marvin): You oughta see 'em from my side.

All of the tall-tale scense from "Big Fish".

The chariot race from "Ben Hur".

The scene in "A Chrismas Story" where the kid almost shoots his eye out, as all the adults predicted, then cooks up a story to tell his mother, who falls for it, and the kid stops crying long enough to look directly at the audience with that knowing grin, before going back to crying again.    And later, the Chinese staff at the restaurant manging the Christmas carols (Deck the hars with boughs of harry, fa rararara, rarararah.).

Another favorite of mine is in the Godfather Two. The mother of Micheal and Fredo has died and the two brothers hug - it looks like a reconciliation. But when Micheal looks up he catches the eye of his hit man. As soon as those two look at each other you know that Fredo is a dead man. And not a word is spoken. Just a glance.

>>The Twilight Zone when Shatner opens the curtain on the plane and something has its nose pressed against the window. I shrieked so loud that my father came in and turned off the TV.<<

Never underestimate the power of overacting.

I love the entire ending of 2001, when Bowman is transforming into the New Man.

I like the end of "Phase IV" it was better than the book.

There's a sad scene in "Brazil" where Jonathan Pryce is trying to escape from the Gestapo-like police of the future and a girl tells him he can take this car that's sitting there so Pryce thanks her and jumps in but notices how sad-faced she is so he asks her, "What are doing here?" and she says, "I'm waiting for my daddy." Pryce just nods and continues on his way. If you saw the movie, you know why it's a sad scene.
