Out of the Past, a classic film noir from 1947 starring Robert Mitchum. The woman is Jane Greer, which only means something to noir buffs. ;-D No one got this one right, as I expected. inthekeyofd knew that was Robert Mitchum at least. Other guesses included Casablanca.

Heh...I've never seen any of the Mad Max movies, but that's what popped into my head when I saw the first one. I still would have been wrong cuz I wouldn't have guessed 2. ;)

OMG! Even though Mel Gibson is a complete nutjob now, he was very hot back in the day. And Road Warrior is simply awesome. LIke Blade Runner, it's one of the most ripped-off films, visually. Basically every post-apocalyptic film owes a debt to it.
And it has lotsa leather! Several kickass chase scenes.

Good job on guessing Last of the Mohicans. That scene is one of my favorite movie moments ever. That look she gives, right before ... ooh, I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it!

I'll have to see those. And it's been way too long since I saw Last of the Mohicans.

Re: your Harrison Ford icon, yum. I'm not sure what movie that's from, but in Witness he's soooo hot.

That reminds me - I should have put that on my movie meme! The scene where they're dancing in the barn (I think they're in the barn) is one of my faves.

Mmm. Young(ish) Harrison Ford. Geez, "Witness" was 20 years ago! That is a great scene and he improvised some of it, like he did shooting the ninja guy in "Raiders" and saying "I know" instead of "I love you too" in "Empire Strikes Back."

This icon is from "Empire," by the way. It's by noldo_icons. Han Solo's finest hour! ;-D And for the "Star Wars" movies too.

I wish I had "Witness" on DVD - just VHS!

The Raising Arizona scene where the biker comes to get Nick Cage's character kind of looks like that, but with the pics, it had to be a Mad Max movie.

Room with a View, H.B.C in the pic gave it away for me.

And thank you for telling which Robert Mitchum movie that was, oh yes I know who Jane Greer was, but I'm not up into Robert Mitchum though, even though, I have to tell you, I really did respect him as an actor.

Icon! ;-D

Yes, Raising Arizona was a very good guess. I knew exactly what you were thinking about!

I wasn't sure if HBC would be identifiable in such a long shot. I had more shots of nude bathing - man, that is one funny scene!

Yay for Robert Mitchum. One of my favorite actors of all time. So good and subtle and just smokin' hot. He can raise an eyebrow and I just melt. And that voice ...!

I had to use it, even though the one you are using..sigh...that scruff and that black t-shirt!!

I was watching a Biography on Robert Mitchum and they were saying he was married to the same woman for years and years and that he never fell into that "hollywood" thing of getting rid of the wife for a bright and shiney one..my respect for him went up ten-fold after that. Even with all his problems he still remained loyal to her. Now that is admirable.

Mitchum did stay married to his wife all those years, but I think she put up with a lot. I'm sure he never turned a woman down in his life. He had a pretty famous longterm affair with Shirley MacLaine that she wrote about in her autobiography.

Yes, I'm quite the Mitchum fan! And film noir, too. All that smoking and smouldering gazes! ;-D Man, I'd love to get back to the AU noir fic! (psst, foxxcub!)

Oh yeah, she did put up with a lot, he really was no angel, including his arrests.

I love Noir, and the smoking and the tension that noir built, the dialogue, and the costumes for those movies...LOVE IT!!!

Duh... I can't believe I didn't get Gladiator. I love that movie.

I want to see A Room With a View now. :)

Room With a View is a lot of fun. Probably my favorite Merchant-Ivory film. And yes, there's full-frontal male nudity! There's a whole extended bathing in a pond scene with lots of splashing and silliness. ;-D

I'm gonna have to give this meme a try....it was fun!!

The last one I thought was "Chaplin" (the one with Robert Downey Jr) but when I saw the extra screencap, I remembered that scene by the pond. Naked man! Naked man! Running in circles!!!

I cannot believe I did not get Trainspotting!!!!

And I was gonna guess "My Own Private Idaho" for "Drugstore Cowboy" so at least I got the right director!!

yes - do another one!

Okay, I NEVER would've gotten Trainspotting, seeing as how I've seen *maybe* ten minutes of it ;D Thank you for posting the answers, babe--my brain can rest now.
