If you love flying and outstanding filming of flying I would suggest High Road to China.

Does any one else have a movie where one short scene stand out in your mind in a so-so movie on the whole?

To me the romance comedy Notting Hill with the scene of the actress being interviewed by the press and her love interest asking her to reconsider leaving England.

No one can do such a scene better then Julia Roberts.

@BillRM,
The 'Frankly I don't give a damn' scene at the end of Gone With The Wind - a real weepie moment!

@BillRM,
Are there no Monty Python fans on this topic?

In the "great line" area:

Butch Cassidy: Alright. I'll jump first.

Sundance Kid: No.

Butch Cassidy: Then you jump first.

Sundance Kid: No, I said.

Butch Cassidy: What's the matter with you?

Sundance Kid: I can't swim.

Butch Cassidy: Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill you.

Dorothy Parker reviewing (I think) Katherine Hepburn:

"She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B.”

Yes indeed. Saw that again last night. What a movie.
On another thread JTT said Eastwood was a lousy director.
What utter nonsense.

Two scenes from Woody Allen's Take the Money and Run. First, Virgil playing the bass fiddle in the school marching band. He's marching dragging a chair.

Virgil trying to rob a bank. Gets into a debate with the teller, who's having trouble reading the handwriting on his robbery note. What's gub? That's not gub. It's gun. No, that's a b. etc.

@BillRM,
Rear Window when Liza returns to the apartment after grabbing the ring. The look in "Jeff"'s eyes was filled with admiration and love.
