This thread brought back enough memories I pulled out some of my DVD's of 1950 movies, think I will start with Bridge of River Kwai.

The scene from "Band of Brothers" where Easy Company is hard pressed by German paras reinforced w/armor, but 2AD tanks arrive just in time. Then "Nix" says:

Capt. Nixon: Well hello second armored.

I look at the patch in my display case every time I see this scene.

A Scene in the film "Stalingrad" when a company of German assault engineers destroys a heavily fortified factory building in Stalingrad.

It just sayes boom... a very nice German company level assault on a extreamly heavily fortified factory building...
its a typical Company level German WW2 assult operation.

Lieutenant Thomas D. Chamberlain: No disrespect to you brave men, but why are you fightin' this war?

Confederate prisoner: I can't speak for some other folks, but I'm fightin' for my "rats".
Lieutenant Thomas D. Chamberlain: Your what?
Confederate prisoner: My "rats". The "rat" to live my life like I see fit. I don't know why we can't live our lives our way and you live yours. Live and let live I've heard so folks say ...

and ...

Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: [Chamberlain is addressing his junior officers before the Confederate assault on Little Round Top]
Gentlemen... the 83rd Pennsylvania, 44th New York, and 16th Michigan will be moving in to our right. But if you look to our left, you will see that there is no one there. It's because we're the end of the line. The Union army stops here. We are the flank. Do you understand, gentlemen? We cannot retreat. We cannot withdraw. We are going to have to be stubborn today ...


Great stuff! Wish Of Gods and Generals had been as good as Gettysburg...though Lang was fantastic as Stonewall.



if i understood correctly there was to be a 3rd and final film? anyone have any word on that?

The Last Full Measure is pretty decent reading but I doubt if we'll see it made into a movie.  If OG&G had been a success there might have been a real chance.

Blazing Saddles, near the end. Heddy Lamar’s bandits (that’s Hedley !) are riding across the prairie and come to a toll booth. The light turns red, the gate comes down, and they all stop.

Slim Pickens: “Le Petomane Thruway !!?? What the hell will he think of next !!”

Pauses and looks around, turns:

The real Lamar sued Brooks and received an undisclosed sum.

Lamar also shares the patent for a secret commo syst still used today; it was a method for encrypting messages based on the technology of a player piano.

Raising Arizona has two of my favorite scenes:


One of the kidnappers asks this old store clerk: Do these balloons blow up into funny shapes?

Old timer: Well no, unless you think round is funny.



Kidnapper/Bankrobber: All right hayseeds, this is a stickup. Everybody freeze, everybody get down on the ground.

After noticing that no one is moving another old timer says: Well, which is it young feller. You want I should freeze or get down on the ground. If'n I freeze I can't rightly drop . . . and if'n I drop I'm gonna be in motion.

Another favorite movie scene. Abott and Costello doing their "Who's on first" routine. Definitely a classic.

The beginning and end of Saving Private Ryan, both cemetery and combat scenes.

The initial scenes of the PH attack in Tora Tora Tora, still the best enactment of that battle ever put on the screen.

The scenes in We Were Soldiers where the younger soldiers greet the Master Sergeant with "good morning Sergeant", and then later, ask him about the weather.

The 82nd's attack across the river in A Bridge Too Far.  "Hail Mary!" "Full of Grace!"

King Theoden's speech to his cavalry before they charge the orcs outside the walls of Minas Tiras in "The Return of the King".  They know it's hopeless, the viewers know it's hopeless, but they never hesitate.

So many to choose from... here's two.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (servant shot by arrow with paper tied to it):

"Message for you, sir!"


The 13th Warrior (Vikings preparing for battle):

Lo, there do I see my father
Lo, there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning
Lo, they do call to me
They bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla
Where the brave may live forever...

If you can get past the Viking ship sailing up a river shallow enough to wade across in the middle of the steppes, and other rather odd scenes, yes it was a rather good movie.

I always liked the scene with the Poles from The Battle of Britain...

A non-operational Polish Hurricane squadron, still under training and led by a British officer, suddenly sees a group of He 111s…

Polish Pilots: ‘Nazi! Nazi!'…(lots of excited shouting in Polish)

British Officer, slowly and clearly: ‘Stop that Polish chatter and steer two-three-zero’

First Polish Pilot (whose command of English has suddenly disappeared): ‘Repeat Please’. Hurricane banks swiftly away towards the Germans, unseen by the British officer.

British Officer: ‘I say again two-three-zero’.

Second Polish Pilot: ‘Repeat Please’. Hurricane banks quickly away.

British Officer: ‘For crying out loud, Two-Three-Zero!

Third Polish Pilot: ‘Repeat Please’. Hurricane banks quickly away.
Fourth Polish Pilot: ‘Repeat Please’. Hurricane banks quickly away.
Fifth Polish Pilot: ‘Repeat Please’. Hurricane banks quickly away.

British officer: ‘Now just shut up the lot of you, and just follow me, unless you are blind as well as…’ looks over and sees his entire squadron hurtling towards the Germans. ‘Oh God’s Strewth!’ he says despairingly, turning after them.

A fierce air battle takes place, the Poles shouting excitedly over the radio as they savage the German formation.

British officer: ‘Shut Up! Silence… In Polish!’

_____________________________

While the battles the British fight may differ in the widest possible ways, they invariably have two common characteristics – they are always fought uphill and always at the junction of two or more map sheets.

Ok, here is my favorite that does not involve a naked woman.

The shootout scene that opens "Once Upon a Time in the West. Jack Elam, Woody Strobe and Al Mulock face off against Charles Bronson in a gunfight on a beat up train platform. Takes fifteen minutes to build up to and is all over in half a second. Just brilliant.

Of course the closing shootout between Bronson and Henry Fonda (as evil a bad man as you will ever see) is no slouch either.

Here I stand, the goddess of desire
Set men on fire;
I have this power.
Morning, noon, and night, it's dwink and dancing;
Some qvick womancing;
And then a shower.
Stage door Johnnies constantly suwwound me;
They always hound me;
With one wequest;
Who can satisfy their lustful habits?
I'm not a wabbit;
I need some weee... (breath) ... eeest.

One more from Sand Pebbles:

Capt threatens to shoot Holman if he doesn't shut up. Holman replies "Well shoot somethin" Then take the rifle and shoots Po Han. I was always a Steve McQeen fan, but became a Mako fan after that movie.

the opening scene to the original Cannonball Run when Dom Delouise first turns into Capt Chaos - 'I.... I am Capt Chaos and this is my faithful companion JJ..... say hello JJ....... been a cop long??' it was the film to watch and quote when i was in the sixth year at school - havent seen it since, its probably rubbish now!!!

the opening sequence of Star Wars, when the destroyer goes over the screen firing at Leia's transport ship, i was 8 watching it in the cinema with my dad and i still remember the reverb on the screen and my seat vibrating - i loved it

Its a bit cheesy but the scene in independence day when the first 'disc' appears over new york and its simply massive, the way the actual 'reveal' is held and held and held with everyone looking up and then the clouds part - i thought this was great in the trailer

Band of Brothers - the brecourt guns mission with Lt Winters and his small squad, and the scene with Capt (forgotten his name) running through Foy(?) to recon the troops and then running back to tell everyone
