Some favorite movie scenes

The Birds
The Birds, screenwriter, screenplay, film writer, Alfred Hitchcock

One of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest movies, this scene is a classic example of subtext.  

White Heat
Top of the World, White heat, screenwriter, film writer, screenplay, James Cagney

"On top of the world, Ma."  James Cagney in quite the memorable ending. 

Shawshank Redemption
Shawshank Redemption, Stephen King, twist ending
Shawshank redemption, screenwriter, film writer, screenplay

This Stephen King story has one of the best twist endings ever. 

The Brain Eaters
The Brain Eaters, I don't know, screenwriter, film writer, screenplay, Leonard Nimoy

Based on a story by Robert A. Heinlein, this has become one of my cult classics. Maybe because Leonard Nimoy was in it.
