Hell, those were the best parts of their respective films...almost universally so. Weird

Good selection.
But it needs to include George C. Scott's acrobatic little trip in the war room in Dr. Strangelove.
And the squirrel jumping onto the tree trunk after Death chops down the tree in The Seventh Seal.

Why don't we expand this to 64, then later include a few play-ins?

It's kind of amusing how, even with Stanley Kubrick's well-deserved reputation for being a control freak, some of the great improvised moments in film history are in Kubrick films.

The thing is, though, only certain people got to improvise.  In "The Shining," Jack Nicholson could improvise freely, but Shelly Duvall and Scatman Crothers and the other actors were made to do quite literally hundreds of takes of a scene (leading Crothers, at one point, to just break down in tears.)
 
2013-03-17 03:10:25 PM
Some of those were disappointing. Others just showed the genius of the actors who came up with great lines on the spur of the moment.

Roy Batty's little speech before he "dies" is one of my favorites, but adding "like tears in the rain" supposedly off the top of his head takes it from great to excellent.

I disagree that he "deactivated" himself though. He had a 4-year life span. It was "time to die". Yeah, it's a pretty huge coincidence that his life ended right there but the alternative would not have been very interesting. Imagine, Batty spares Deckard and goes off somewhere and his life expires the next day while Deckard continues to hunt him down. Yeah, not so interesting.

Just because something is "unscripted" doesn't mean a lot of deliberate thought didn't go into it. The spontaneous natures of some of these moments gets grossly exaggerated because it makes for a better story.

Case and point is the sword fight in "Raiders." There are many variations on the story, including that the fight as originally scripted and choreographed was never even shot -- that's completely untrue, it was shot. And along these lines, in variations of the story Ford was just too sick to do the fight scene, which is again false, because he did do it. Further, multiple versions of the gun shot were done, so it wasn't a case of lighting striking on the first take and that being all they did.

List fails without Raiders of the Lost Ark when in one scene Harrison Ford (very sick on the set) was facing down a man with knives. In a screw this shiat moment, Ford takes out his pistol, simply shoots and walks away. Brilliant!

Uh......did that happen twice in Raiders?

I'm pretty sure they mentioned at least one of those scenes. I don't remember the other one

Another example is "Singing in the Rain" from Clockwork. Not quite as spontaneous as the stories make it out to be. As McDowell explains, when the shooting day came up on the schedule, Kubrick waited 5 days to shoot because he was having trouble with it. On the fifth day he asked McDowell if he could dance. He said he could and demonstrated with Singing in Rain."

Tricadero Heh, figures a real NYC cabbie would drive right through a movie set.

That's not the way I heard it. IRRC that was a 'stolen' scene. They were filming on the street without the requisite permits and it was not a closed movie set. The cab driver was just being a normal cab driver.  Not sure which version is true but I like the one I heard better...
 
2013-03-17 03:57:07 PM
... all those scenes lost in time, like tears... in the rain.
 
2013-03-17 03:57:12 PM
That scene in Raiders Of The Lost Ark is probably one of the most brilliant in all of cinema. I had heard it was Harrison Ford's idea, but now it's confirmed.

/ Love me some Harrison Ford

"Tears in the rain"? Isn't it just tears in rain? Tears in the rain just sounds like it's being sung by Gene Kelly.

Reminds me of some 100 greatest movie quotes poster I saw once, and the Back to the Future quote was written "Roads? Where we're going we don't need no roads." A movie line so memorable you don't even know what it is. At least go over the whole thing before you sent it out to be printed up 10000 times and sold, and maybe when you repeat it back to yourself you'll notice it sounds a little off...like it was being said by Chris Tucker and not Christopher Lloyd.

I'd forgotten about Luca Brasi, which is inspired, considering it also fits in with "who's that creepy guy" and the whole "I'm not my father, Kay".

Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, Chief. We was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte... just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, Chief? You tell by looking from the dorsal to the tail fin. What we didn't know, was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week.

Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark will go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand. I know how many men, they averaged six an hour.

On Thursday morning, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boatswain's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down in the water just like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon, the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us. He swung in low and he saw us... he was a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he saw us and he come in low and three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and starts to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened... waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water; 316 men come out and the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.
