  1. Edward G. Robinson also took a bath in House of Strangers (1949).
  2. James Bond in all the Bond films. 😀
  3. Murray the K -- the name is familiar, but I was a Cousin Brucie fan myself. I haven't been following this thread faithfully, so maybe someone else has already posted this: COUSIN BRUCIE IS BACK! On Saturday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can find him at http://www.insideradio.com/free/cousin-brucie-morrow-comes-full-circle-with-saturday-s-return-to-wabc/article_3448f324-eb48-11ea-9b3a-df2e1229de1c.html?fbclid=IwAR24p5V6AHLhNVSGQvkx8bSRsrFVjzzPC25vcwSHVMny35J8-mOFzaTmMFI Or try www.abcradio.com.
  4. The Sound of Music: The Trapp family hides from the Nazis in a convent.
  5. Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears (2020)
  6. The Little Foxes (1941) Hush . . . Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964)
  7. House of Strangers (1949) The Bad Sleep Well (1960) The Oscar (1966)
  8. Embrace of the Serpent (2015)
  9. The Sniper (1952) was set in San Francisco, but the city is never identified. As Eddie Muller pointed out in his DVD commentary, it's his hometown and it's obviously San Francisco, but maybe no one in San Francisco wanted to be associated with a serial sniper.
  10. Saw this after I posted. Hats off to Princess of Tap.
  11. Did I mention that I'm a film noir fan?! And am I imagining things or do almost all of them have a scene in a soda fountain? 😀
  12. I forgot this one: In The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), Dana Andrews's character, Captain Fred Derry, comes back from the war to his old job as a soda fountain clerk and makes even less money than he did as a GI, and his wife is mightily displeased.
  13. Stranger on the Third Floor (1940) ends with a scene in a soda fountain. In the Strange Affair of Uncle Harry (1945), one of Harry's sisters and one of her friends gossip over ice cream cones at a soda fountain about the youngest sister and her hypochondria. In Tension (1950), Warren Quimby (Richard Basehart) is the manager of an all-night drugstore with a soda fountain. The Sniper (1952) tries to call his psychiatrist from a soda fountain.
  14. Shirley Valentine (1989) Transit (2018)
  15. The Letter (1940, with Bette Davis
  16. Oh, yes. One of my favorite movie titles of all time.
  17. The Upside of Anger (2005) Downsizing (2017)
  18. Boude Saved from Drowning (1932) Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986) Both main characters in both films go from unshaven to clean-shaven back to unshaven.
  19. Macao (1952) Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959) Shanghai Surprise (1986)
  20. Rebecca (1940) Gaslight (1940, 1944)
  21. Moby Dick (1956) Whale Rider (2002) And there's that hilarious Seinfeld episode when George finds Kramer's golf ball in the spout of a whale.
  22. Safety Last! (1923): the iconic shot of Harold Lloyd clinging to a clock hand on the top of a skyscraper Fourteen Hours (1955): Richard Basehart threatens to jump from the fifteenth floor Barefoot in the Park (1967): Paul Bratter stands on the top of their tenement building to prove to his wife Corie that he is not a fuddy-duddy (I'm so glad this film can keep coming up in relevant categories!)
  23. I know this ClassiCategory is two days old, but I did think of another one: Bull Durham (1988). Annie Savoy has that big house with the front verandah (doesn't "front porch" sound better?) and the front "porch" swing. There's a lovely shot of the front of the house when Crash Davis comes a-callin', but the interior and exterior is showcased at the start of the film, too.
