It seems to me that links to videos are not a popular thread; one may not always be in the mood. I'm wondering if a "video thread" containing a scene from a movie might be fun.

If you would like to join me in giving this a try, please do! Let's limit the length of the video to a maximum of three minutes. Please provide the name of the movie and maybe a word or two as to why it has become an unforgettable favorite of yours.

I would like to start with a scene from the movie "Michael" starring John Trivolta; a must see if you haven't had the opportunity to do so. This is the scene from the tavern where Michael chooses a song from the jukebox. Oh yes, why do I like this clip? Simply because, no matter what age...somethings remain hot! This scene, in my opioion qualifes as just that...HOT!

I can't post it, but the nazi dominatrix scene is "Shaving Private Ryan" always stands out for me....

That's a great scene from Michael

There are so many great scenes from Princess Bride, but this is among my faves (the battle of wits):

I LOVE the scene in "Casablanca", when the Nazis are
singing a German song - in Ricks
And then all the patriotic French start to sing
"Le Marseillaies" over them....
Brings a lump to my throat every time....
Good triumphing over least in a small way!!!!

Here's the La Marseillaise scene from Casablanca:

It's one of my favorite movies/scenes, too.

The scene at the end of "The Bicycle Thief," with the little boy and his father. It has haunted me since the first time I saw it.

Sargon - "Dead Poet's Society" One of my alltime favorite films! Though not a huge fan of Robin Williams comedic style, his acting in a dramatic role is beyond reproach. I cannot choose one scene over the other as my favorite. There are no words to express the feelings which resurfaced while watching each is beyond any verbal communication.

"Seize the day, gather ye rosebuds, while ye may."

Captain my captain

Thank you so much for bringing this film, once again, to the forefront of my mind. I shall dust off the cover of the DVD case and watch the film again tonight.

One of my favorites is from the early 50's movie "Shane" when Shane played by Alan Ladd rides away and Joey played by Brandon De Wilde hobbles after him Shouting, Shane! Shane! (sniff sniff)

SHANE! I'm with you on that closing scene Donden. I was seven years old in 1953 and my dad took us to the Mayfair movie house every Friday night. I still recall crying like a baby...oh, wait, I was a baby compared to now!!! Seriously Donden, that was a real tear-jerker. Oh, and thanks for the trivia about Brandon de Wilde...I did not know that! Here's another bit of trivia, which you may or may not know.. How tall was Alan Ladd? Hint - the director made him stand on a box with any face to face scenes?

Here's the trailer....the opening scene is Alan Ladd riding off into the sunset...sniff, sniff...

I will stop whatever I'm doing if I know "The Sting" is coming on. I wait (impatiently) for the poker scene on the train where Paul Newman is so delightfully obnoxious.

I like the shower scene from Psycho, the final fight scene from High Noon, Charly (when he realizes people are making fun of him), several from On Golden Pond, and Don Knott's first night in the haunted house (The Ghost and Mr. Chicken).
Shane is a real classic too--there are several good scenes in that movie.

Having a bad day? Watch any scene from the movie Falling Down.

There are several moments in Groundhog Day (some of them coming up more than once).
Love the bank-robbery, car crash over the quarry '.....Well, maybe not'

'Nobody's perfect' -- last line of Some Like it Hot...but that pales besides hearing Marilyn Monroe sing 'Boop boop a Doo'... or in another movie 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend'.

And finally, from Mulholland Drive:
'Have you ever done this before....?'
'I don't know'

-- context provided if necessary.

The scene in "A League of Their Own" when the country girl goes to read the rosters and someone realizes that she can't read. Gets me every time.

I'm such a mush...

The Blade Runner ending scene, when Rutger Hauer's Roy Batty (a replicant) says:

"I've...SEEN things you people wouldn't believe (smirks). Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched seabeams glitter in the dark like ten hours of (unclear). All those moments..will be time, like....(chokes up) rain. die (dies)."

Spacecat is right about the movie "Falling Down".
I love the movie "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" with Richard Prior and Gene Wilder.
Most of the scenes are really funny, but the one that really get my tickle bone is when
Richard Prior tells the cop about the deaf guy(Gene Wilder). "heeeeeeeeee's DEAF not STUUUUUUUUUPID"
Darn, now I really want to go home now so I can watch that.

I love the scene in "Fried Green Tomatoes" in the shopping centre car park where Kathy Bates slams into the little VW that pinched her parking spot. "Let's face it, girls. I'm older and I've got more insurance."

The scene from Scent of a Woman when Al Pacino is dancing the tango with the young girl. Also when he is driving the car. And
certianly when he is telling the head master what he thinks of The Baird school. Loved that movie. charlotte

The baptism/murder scene from The Godfather. Michael Corleone is standing godfather to his sister's child while at the same time he has men all over the city carrying out his orders to murder his enemies. An amazing piece of filmmaking. Gives me chills every time.

One of the most chilling scenes ever filmed was in "Cabaret" when a handsome baby-faced young blonde man begins singing a beautiful tune at an outdoors garten. It soon morphs into an horrendous Nazi propaganda song. Some of the audience fully embraces it, but at least one old-timer scratches his head in dismay. Haunting!

One of the funniest movies I've ever seen was "FOUL PLAY"
with Goldie Hawn. I just roared and nearly rolled in the aisle
- when she let the dwarf in - and he fell out of the window,
and then rolled down the stairs in a barrel....

Another fantastic scene was Dudley Moore's apartment....
when he thought he was going to get lucky!!!!
