    Not neccessarily the most realistic, just your personal favorite.

    I gotta go with Indy's "swordfight" in Raiders of the Lost Ark.


    :thumbsup:

    Glad to see the new forum!

    I like the ones on the A-team, where lead flies but nobody bleeds!

    Do you know the 'swordfight' wasn't on screen as scripted? Ford was supposed to fight the last guy like the others, ending in a fistfight. However, he was feeling kind of ill, as in having a case of the 'runs.' So it went like this:

    1. Ford just HAD to go to the bathroom.

    2. He pulled his pistol and shot the BG.

    3. The BG went along, dying on screen.

    4. What we see on the screen next is Ford turning to walk away.

    5. What we DON'T see is after Ford takes about two steps, he goes into a dead run to the closest port-a-john!

    The improvised scene was kept for the movie.

    The "bigger gun" sequence in City Heat is pretty funny plus Clint with the Model 97 trench gun. I also like Ali MacGraw and Steve McQueen in the original "The Getaway". The scene in the hotel.

    The shootout at the end of Taxi Driver is a trip--intense and weird!

    Fate is definitely on Travis Bickle's side...
