There's the moment in Bridge Over the River Kwai when you spot that the cable is snagged.

Another great David Lean film, but I do have an even earlier memory from one of his other films, "Great Expectations", when the convict suddenly looms out of the darkness in the churchyard. I was very young when I saw it and I nearly wet myself with shock!

Another great image I've remembered from one of my top ten movies - 'Gigi'. The scene where Gaston is brooding on his unexpected love for the young Gigi and is seen in silhouette with his opera hat tipped forward and his cane over his shoulder against the fountains in the (I think) Place de la Concorde. Of course, the whole film is a bow in the direction of the French impressionists - superbe!
