Memorable Movie Moments

I am planning - purely for fun, not profit - a new project to celebrate the most memorable moments in the movies.

I will be putting up a website at MemorableMovieMoments.com, which will list, describe and celebrate the "movie moments" I have found most memorable, and to invite suggestions, votes and comments from other movie lovers.

Watch this space! Meanwhile, a few brief examples here, to whet your appetite and to inspire you to think of your own favourites.

Sean Connery as James Bond 007 in Dr No
Above: "Bond, James Bond" - the entrance of 007 in Dr No (1962) starts a 50 year, $6 billion film franchise.

Entrance of Omar Sharif in Lawrence of Arabia
Above: the entrance of Sherif Ali (Omar Sharif) in Lawrence of Arabia (1962). Sherif is the dot on the horizon, shot with a 500mm telephoto lens; the take lasted a full 10 minutes, and director David Lean later regretted "losing my nerve" and shortening it.
