One of the greatest scenes EVER


This an excellent film. An eg. of Hollywood at its best. MAGICAL.

And it has one of the GREATEST SCENES ever in a movie when his trainer comes to visit him. CLASSIC. Makes me laugh out loud and tear up every time I see it.

Yes indeedie .... a great scene!!

Yes, it is an AWESOME scene, but for me; being a romantic....the ending is BEST!!! OMG, I get goosebumps when Bette looks into Joe's eyes and believes she's seeing something she's seen before.

reply

Yes, YES! That's the one... Joe/Ralph and Bette in the finale.

Without question, THAT IS "THE SCENE" ...the scene that "makes the movie."

reply

Yeeees... I am experiencing chills in the wake of that ending as I type!! Ahhh.

Evelyn Keyes can give one chills all by herself....:) TCM shows "The Mating of Millie" from time to time, a cute movie and she is looking her very best.

Yes. I first saw this film as a child in the 1950s on TV. I've seen it two or three times since, and that ending always chokes me up. Also, unlike a lot of other folks, this is my favorite film version of the story.

this is my favorite film version of the story.

I can see why! I didn't know anything about this film, saw it while I was channel surfing and was immediately more impressed with it than many other classics. I thought, "There better be a good ending, not a cheap one like with so many other films." The ending did not disappoint.

Yes, great scene. The role of Max Corkle is so well written. Interesting that both actors who played the role (James Gleason & Jack Warden) got academy award nominations.

reply

I can't believe that James Gleason did not win an Oscar for his role.

reply

Yes, I love that scene. This movie is character-actor heaven -- James Gleason, plus Claude Rains and Edward Everett Horton. That's magic right there.

This is my favourite version, and my favourite movie period. Although 'Heaven Can Wait' was pretty good.

Haven't seen Chris Rock's 'Down To Earth'. By all accounts, it is one to miss.


You can't palm off a second-rater on me. You gotta remember I was in the pink!

Wow what a classic movie. I agree that ending was just Wow Tears and Laughter.
