>The expression on Joe Buck's, Jon Voigt, face as he realizes

>that Ratso Rizzo, Dustin Hoffman, has died on the bus before

>they can celebrate arriving in Florida, is heart rending as is

>the rest of the scene.

 

 

Interesting that one of the 1st scenes that I thought of was another Jon Voight movie--although in The Champ--he is the one who dies.

 

Try not getting teary from this. If you can, you are a lot more hard hearted than I am.

The only time I blubbered at a movie is when Debra Winger called her kids into her hospital room when she was dying and said goodbye. "Terms of Endearment" Remember the older kid was acting like an ass and she told him never to look back and feel bad about it, because she knew. I managed to stay relatively dry until the little one gave her a last look closing the door.

I vividly remember sitting down, in 1971, to watch a TV film about which I knew absolutely nothing. Half way through “Brian’s Song” I started to cry and didn’t stop until the end of the film. In those days it was not acceptable for a man to admit crying during a movie. The next day, in one of my high school classes, I fessed up and the look of relief on the faces of many of my male students was something to see. The discussion that followed was both enlightening and rewarding.

You beat me to it. Great tear-jerker scene. Now if I'm in the supermarket and the muzak version of the movie score comes on I start to well up.

Interesting.

 

I'd be surprised if anybody here has seen more movies than I have (I get 8 at time from Netflix, and have 400 in my Que and was an obsessive movie watcher long before Netflix) but as an adult no movie has ever brought me close to tears.

 

Books, on the other hand, are another story.

 

p.s. Just saw Rocco and His Brothers. FANTASTIC!

 

p.p.s. Forgot about BrokeBack. That was an almost crying movie. Very near.

Watching the video of the venerable back lot of Universal burn yesterday made me shed a tear. So many great movies were filmed on the several outdoor sets which vanished in the flames. I was lucky enough to work on both of the main sets which were destroyed.

OK, enough of the hijack, we now return you to your regular thread which is already in progress..

Barbara Stanwyck as "Stella Dallas"...the ultimate story of a mother's sacrifice. This scene gets me every time:

But I'm not a movie person. What really gets me is when Gloria and Mike leave "All in the Family" and when the WJM gang say their goodbyes on "Mary Tyler Moore" and when Dorothy finally gets a man on "Golden Girls."

James Evans dying, Edith Bunker dying .... I loved how AbFab handled death - when Edina's father died and Saffy scolded her "You can quit smirking now!" And Edina and Patsy find the body in the coffin and Patsy opines "He looks sort of plotzed, Eddy". Now that's gold.

>Stepmom with Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon...

 

This is the one I thought of, too. My daughters said not to watch (it came out about the time of my wife's death - also of cancer). A couple of years later I happened on it one night and became so emotionally involved it took at least an hour afterward to recover.

 

Same thing with an oldie (Elizabeth Taylor and Van Johnson) "The Last Time I Saw Paris" from 1954. Never a good idea to see this kind by yourself. ;(

I'm surprised no one has mentioned "Imitation of Life with Lana Turner. The last reel was a weeper for many, I'm sure.

RE: Movie scenes that make you cry x 3

 

The end of SPLASH...I wanted to KICK Tom Hanks off the dock. The ending of MARY POPPINS made me sad as a child. Is this TOO GAY?!?!...the second movie I cried at was the end of THE WAY WE WERE...my older brother and sis teared up too. I was not even in my teens yet.

We shot a homemade porn video when we were 20 and 21 years old. We were both very skinny and hairless and looked about 12 and 13. We actually had a script...we were supposed to be straight guys who'd gotten drunk (we had beer bottles filled with ginger ale) and found ourselves stripping and fucking like wild animals. It's so bad that it makes us laugh so hard that we cry when we watch it, especially Derek's cum shot, which was just as copious as it is now, but shot out with a much harder force and hit us both in the eyes. :p
