  1. This scene features, I believe, Elliott Gould or James Caan, and is from A Bridge Too Far and Arthur Hill is the doc.
  2. Pardon me if this has already been done to death somewhere else on the board but I'm wondering what might be your all-time favorite movie scene? What scene is it that always makes you sit up and pay attention? For me there are two that come to mind. First off, from "Zulu" when the soldiers sing "Men of Harlech" but my all-time favorite scene is Paul Henreid leading the singing of La Marseillaise in "Casablanca". How about you?
  3. I've always felt that "Das Boot" has been the most realistic, and sad, war film ever made. That being said, my favorite "war" movie is "Since You Went Away" which I also claim as my favorite Christmas movie. The relationship between Claudette Colbert and Joseph Cotton is done so well. Robert Walker is the only distraction in my opinion. I'd love to have dog like Soda and that ending always gets me!
  4. A couple of more that come to mind; A young Jean Simmons as Estelle in Great Expectations and two from my childhood...Rosemary Forsyth as Jennie Anderson in Shenandoah Francoise Dorleac as Bortei in Gengis Khan She was the older sister of Catherine Deneuve and was killed in a car crash at the age of 25.
  5. I watched the love of my life again last night...Ann Hilton from Since You Went Away. Others that quickly come to mind include; Kathleen Yorke in Rio Grande Lisa Freemont in Rear Window Gillian Holroyd in Bell, Book & Candle Alison Palmer in The Russians Are Coming Moira Davidson in On the Beach and probably a whole lot more!
  6. I put my vote in for "Since You Went Away". Yeah, I know Robert Walker is sappy but Claudette Colbert is wonderful. This is not only my favorite "war" film but far and away my favorite Christmas movie. And how I long for a dog like Soda!
  7. I too mourned the passing of George MacDonald Fraser. I loved the Flashman books and just in the last year or so finally caught "Royal Flash". It's too bad Hollywood never did more with Flashy.
  8. It is only in recent years that I have come to the conclusion that "Rio Grande" is the best of a great trio. The recently released DVD has a great documentary included that really looks in depth at the film. Admittedly, i'm a sucker for Maureen O'Hara but it also has the roman riding, a great Victor McLaglen role, especially when Chill Wills smacks him with the stick. "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" is of course the sentiimental favorite and in color to boot. Henry Fonda is great in "Fort Apache" as is George O'Brien. I love them all but "Rio Grande" has risen to the top in my opinion.
  9. I've always loved this movie! Deborah Kerr is gorgeous and it is just a great story!

    The Good German

    Last week I read the novel. Tonight I saw the movie. What a disaster! I loved the book and expected some of the many characters might be merged together but I didn't expect the whole story line to be thrown out the window! I won't do a spoiler on the ending but there is something a little too familiar about it! Read the book and leave the movie alone! AndyO
  11. I'm torn between James Stewart and Ava Gardner. Stewart because I've always admired him and Gardner because I've always "admired" her!
  12. Another great WWII film is "Soldier of Orange" starring Rutger Hauer. It's about Holland and a group of college friends and how the war affects them.
  13. That was a fictional story set in World War II. Still a good movie however. I remember a touching scene where the soldiers prepare one of their dead comrades for burial by washing his body.
  14. I just saw the new film, "Joyoux Noel" about the Christmas truce of 1914. While it, as most historical films do, plays with the facts a bit it is a moving anti-war piece. The scene where the two sides begin to accompany one another on singing Christmas carols brought tears to my eyes. See it if you can!
  15. While this a recent film I do think it is a gangster classic. So many great scenes and dialogue; the crap game in the basement and the battle with the bikers are just two examples. "Is it better to be loved, or feared?"
