Most of the scenes described below are classics, but there are a couple of more obscure moments in films listed that I found unforgettable:


Marilyn Monroe, "Some Like It Hot", the subway grate

John Travolta, and his strut, "Saturday Night Fever"

Ann Margaret, as stunningly kittenish teen-aged Kim in "Bye Bye Birdie"

Marlon Brando, absolutely flawless "The Wild One"

Elizabeth Taylor in that white dress, "Giant"

James Dean, shooting pool nervously, looking at Elizabeth Taylor in that white dress "Giant"

Tom Cruise, dancing in "Risky Business"

Brad Pitt, flyfishing, in "A River Runs Through It"

Audrey Hepburn, ready for the ball, "My Fair Lady"

Robert Redford, as Katie (Barbra Streisand) ruffles that hair in "The Way We Were"

Julia Roberts, the red dress, "Pretty Woman"

Rita Hayworth, as she tosses back her hair in "Gilda"

Nicole Kidman, dancing in car headlights, "To Die For"

Charlize Theron, holding up her hair for Al Pacino's appraisal of her neck in "The Devil's Advocate"

Angelina Jolie, spinning on the runway as the aids-stricken model Gia Carangi in "Gia"

Michelle Pfeifer, in the soooooo-slow glass elevator scene, wearing an emerald green dress, "Scarface"

Robert DeNiro, in green beret uniform, "The Deer Hunter"

Kim Novak, barefoot in black, curled up on a couch in "Bell, Book, & Candle"

Lisa Bonet, as Epiphany, washing her hair under the appreciative gaze of Micky Rourke in "Angel Heart" (I thought the movie sucked, but the moment was still breathtaking)

Paul Newman, as Fast Eddie Felson in "The Hustler"--any scene.


I sometimes find myself gasping at the sheer beauty of the human being captured in moments on film. As I pondered over some of these more obvious moments, I got to wondering about what some of your classic moments might be - so...care to share?

Another "name 'em" game for you folks.

When Ewan McGregor hits the "Don't leave me this way" portion of the Elephant Love Song Medly in Moulin Rouge, the look on his face and the way his hands are restrained from being held out, begging... love it.

Same movie, a few bars earlier, when he transforms his delivery from "reading poetry" to "singing" (My gift is my song, and this one's for you) and Nicole Kidman stops her fake orgasm in suprised wonderment... the look on her face, beautiful.

Good one k. I bet I can think of many more (just re-watched Moulin Rouge last night, so t'was fresh in my mind)

egowhores.com - really love yourself.

Virtually every scene of nature or fishing
(and Brad Pitt) in A River Runs Through

(and Robert Redford's narration is poetry)

And the same to be said of Robert Redford in The Horse Whisperer...
the scenery in that movie is visually stunning in every frame.

Brad Pitt in the tux in Joe Black.
Brad Pitt with long blond hair in Legends of the Fall
and the way he looks at Julia Ormand.

Tom Cruise and most all of the cast in the Last Samurai...
another visually stunning film..
the scenery, the costumes and the beauty of the cast and the chemistry between the cast,
is all amazingly effective and impressive.

All of Dances With Wolves...cast and scenery


hmmm.... still thinking...

I thought of these two afterwards, and sure enough, they were on Raph's list:

Susan Sarandon, in that Bull Durham stocking thing

and oui, oui, to Sophie Marceau in Braveheart.

And I'm laughing at the Carrie Fisher, Raph. That must be a guy thing.

C? I haven't yet seen Moulin Rouge, but I am such a fan of Nicole Kidman's it's embarrassing. So you know when I do watch, I'll be looking for those scenes and remembering you.

Jan...A River Runs Through It. We are still on the same page, twin.

And Phaerie Child?

Richard Gere and Julia Ormand...He played Lancelot

YES! There's a scene where he drips water in her mouth from a leaf that I found very, um, erotic.

And how could we forget Sigourney Weaver hunting aliens in her underwear? Not to mention all dressed in red and snarling in Ghostbusters?

Meg Ryan (When Harry Met Sally) The fake orgasm scene - I am still trying to find what she was having      

Renée Zellweger (Jerry McGuire) "You had me at hello."  sigh....

Clint Eastwood (Sudden Impact) "Make my day."

Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump) The bench scene, "Life is like a box of chocolates."

Harrison Ford (Raider Of The Lost Ark) when a warrior starts swinging this huge sword like a ninja, and he pulls out a gun, says, "What the heck," then shoots him.

(Monty Python And The Holy Grail) where the aboriginal man drinks a bottled coke.

Peter Pan "There it is Wendy, second star to the right and straight on til morning."

I still look for it.      

Judy Garland (Wizard Of Oz) "We're off to see the wizard."

Any scene, from just about any movie with Shawn Connery, Brad Pitt, or Tom Cruise in it.

Well, I definitely agree with the tom cruise vote..

That last scene in the Last Samurai when he honors his friend *sniff* and then gives his friend's sword to the emperor *sniff*

Then there's the Seventh Sign with Demi Moore, that pulled at my heart strings! Especially the ending!

those are the only two i can remember this early in the morning..i'll be back!

The tango scene in Scent of a Woman. Whoaah!

Jessica Rabbit "I'm not bad..I was just drawn that way."

Marilyn Monroe in just about any scene of any of her movies, but, as Cherie'(Cherry) in Bus Stop singing "That Old Black Magic."
The ending scene when her lover puts his coat around her shoulders and offers her a hand up into the bus. Awwwwwwwwwwww.

South Pacific the first time Lt.Cable lays eyes on Liat. I was entranced.

The Shall We Dance scene in The King and I.

My favourite words from True Romance "You're so cool."

Oh, I will be daydreaming more than any other day now.

Ooooh yes...Jimmy Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life!!
The scene in the bar when Jimmy is praying to God for help. They did this in one take. Back then the camera equipment was very inadequate so instead of being able to zoom in on Jimmy's teary face, they had to sort of blow the film up. If you look really hard, you can see abit of a change in film quality in that scene, but, oh, what a marvelous job Jimmy did. He is one of my all-time favourite actors and just a very gentle man. I have his book of poetry.

Got to agree with Summer of 42. Jennifer was absolutely captivating in her way too short 12 minutes in that wonderful film. There have been many more but, after being reminded of that one, I just draw a complete blank.

And while I'm at it, I agreed with ALL of the above as "showstopper moments"...

And what about Hannibal Lector?

Dustin Hoffman in every movie and every scene.  "Kramer vs Kramer",  "All the Presidents Men",  "Death of a Salesman",  "The Graduate", "Hook"  just to name a few.  My favorite being "Rain Man"...  I think this versatile actor ran with his talent and kicked it up a notch as Raymond Babbit.  It was such a bittersweet role, not just anyone could pull off.  

Gotta love that little Focker!!!

Yes, and the scene in Gypsy where Natalie Wood is dressed up sexy for the first time, almost ready to go out on stage. She is standing in front of the mirror, reaches towards it and says "Mamma? Mamma, I'm a pretty girl."


And one of my favourite scenes is also with Natalie Wood in Splendour in the Grass when she visits her ex-boyfriends(Warren Beatty) farm, meets his pregnant, sweet wife and kneels down in their messy kitchen, she's dressed in white with dainty gloves, and touches the family's toddler son. OMG. *sigh*

I almost jumped out of my seat, Chrislane. That scene in Gypsy is a goosebump moment for me!
