Other Iconic Movie Images

Earlier this month at Anomalous Material I put up a post naming My 13 Most Iconic Movie Images, totally from a personal standpoint. And before I go any further I just want to state for the record that, in fact, this list is sadly missing a particular image I desperately wanted but is virtually impossible to find on the interweb. (The stills on the film's web site are mostly terrible. Who picked those shots? Was the still photographer on that movie also the caterer?) In "The Myth Of Finerprints", my third all time favorite movie, I yearned for either the shot of Roy Scheider walking alone down the country road with the turkey and his rifle or the extreme long shot of Noah Wyle and Arija Bareikis on the frozen lake (I would have debated for days). One of these would have unquestionably made my list instead and probably bumped off the "Out of Sight" still (though that's still a truly great scene and a truly great movie which is unfairly underrated simply because people don't like J.Lo and stubbornly refuse to admit she was really good in that). Alas.

One of My Iconic Movie Image alternates.
Anyway, several of my awesome movie loving colleagues joined the party with their own iconic images lists and I want give them all a deserved shout out. If you haven't already done so, make sure to click on each link and take a look.

First, Claire served up her 10 Iconic Images...

Followed by Ruth's 16 Iconic Images at Flixchatter...

Followed by Scarlet Spider's 17 Iconic Images.

And yes, two of the three lists ALSO include a still from "Titanic." So there.

Keep 'em comin!

so difficult choosing just a few images when so many more keep popping up. I like the image you put up here in your addendum! and thank you for the kind shout out!

Hey thanks for the inspiration and link love, Nick. I might even do this once a year or something as there are too many to choose from :D

Thank you both for joining in! And I agree about how difficult it is to choose. I agonized quite a bit. Doing this once a year is not a bad idea at all.
