Best Scenes in Movie History?

Tonight the TV Movie Channel broadcast "The Graduate." That's MY favorite movie of all time.

I once again enjoyed that significant scene midway that connects the first half of the movie to the last half, with Mrs. Robinson and Benjamin in Room 568 trying to converse about... well, about anything... including that Ford!! What great writing, directing, acting, editing!

What other classic movie scenes do you enjoy?

The long take that ends "The Third Man" that leaves the Protagonist (Holly Martins) standing stock still, as the Woman (Anna Schmidt) heels right past him in silence and disdain. He lights a cigarette, and the smoke seems to be a punctuation mark to her disappearing silhouette as she walks steadily out of his life. The camera follows her until she vanishes.

I was actually going to add the opening scene for Saving Private Ryan when the US troops are landing on the beach at Normandy. Such an epic movie.

Alfred Hitchcock directed countless great scenes. “North By Northwest” has one after another with the memorable Mount Rushmore chase at the end. I heard one time the working title was “The Man In Lincoln’s Nose”.

Many great movies mentioned here already.


I'll go with the the horseback shoot out scene near the end of True Grit between Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) and Lucky Ned Pepper (Robert Duvall). Great dialogue between the two before the shooting starts. "Fill your hands...."

In recent films, Margot Robbie in The Big Short explaining sub-prime mortgages while drinking champagne in a bubble bath, was pure brilliance.
