    From the Wayback Machine . . .

    All Quiet on the Western Front (1930):
    The final scene in which Paul Bäumer (Lew Ayers), who is now the only one from his high school (gymnasium) class that hasn’t been killed or crippled for life, sees a butterfly from his position in the trenches. He reaches out for it, exposing himself slightly, and is killed by a sniper.

    It Happened One Night (1934):
    Peter Warne (Clark Gable), the fired newspaper reporter, and Ellie Andrews (Claudette Colbert), the spoiled heiress who has run away from home with a reward posted by her father for her whereabouts, are hitchhiking. Peter brags of his prowess in easily getting rides with his lucky thumb. After several cars have passed without even slowing, Ellie has him hide in the bushes while she hikes her skirt up to mid-thigh. The next vehicle comes to a screeching halt and picks them up.

    Casablanca (1943):
    The final scene in which Rick (Bogart) kills the German Major Strasser (Conrad Veidt), and has Ilsa (Bergman) board the plane to Lisbon, Portugal (a neutral country) with her husband Laszlo (Paul Henreid).

    Sean Penn (Mystic River) — “Is that my daughter in there?” No piece of scenery was spared a chewing.
    Adrien Brody (The Pianist) — Sobbing as he’s walking through the destroyed ghetto.
    Casey Affleck (MBTS) — “Please!” during the police station scene. Even that would have been good enough.
    Bradley Cooper (SLP) — Freaking out about the tape. Never gonna win in a year with Joaquin Phoenix Phoenixing and DDL going through molecular transformation to become Lincoln but this reminded me so much of my own bipolar friend that it was almost uncomfortable.
    Marion Cotillard (La vie en Rose) — I actually didn’t like the movie apart from her (French editing styles…) but the freakout after she realizes she inadvertantly killed her lover is clutch.
    Frances McDormand (Fargo) — The scene with Peter Stormare in the backseat.
    Meryl Streep (Sophie’s Choice) — The reason I can say “THAT scene” and over 30 years later it is still as heartbreaking, affecting, and unforgettable and even people who haven’t watched it know about “Take my little girl!”
