10 Favorite Movie Moments
1. "To Kill a Mockingbird" - when everyone remaining in the courtroom rises to their feet as Atticus Finch leaves, after his unsuccessful defense of Tom Robinson.
2. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" - when Clark Griswold gathers the family on the front lawn for the grand lighting display he has put on the outside of the house. He sings the first line of "Joy to the World" as he goes to turn them on. And nothing happens.
3. "Lady and the Tramp" - when they are eating spaghetti, and end up kissing.
4. "Casablanca" - when the customer's at Rick's sing "Le Marseillaise" and the German soldiers are clearly annoyed.
5. "Psycho" - duh, the shower scene. Of course, it scares me beyond all reason, but it's a great scene.
6. "It's a Wonderful Life" - when George Bailey is seeing what the world would be like if he had never existed, and we learn that Mary would have ended up as - the horror - a librarian!!!!
7. "Room with a View" - when George Emerson spies Lucy Honeychurch and immediately comes towards her in the field, and then gives her a very dramatic kiss.
8. "Glen or Glenda?" - pick a scene. They're all killers!
9. "Henry IV" - the St. Crispin's Day speech.
10. "The Godfather" - the baby's christening interspersed with scenes of other mobsters being killed. Brilliant contrast.
