New or old, regardless of format, we love talking about movies and the people who make them

Best Exit

Postby MovieAddict » Fri Jan 20, 2012 6:56 pm

Last month I asked what was the best film enterence...now its time to talk exits.

Some obvious and deservedly classic ones are, Clark Gable in Gone With The Wind, Slim Pickens in Dr. Stragelove and Alan Ladd in Shane.

But I'm particularly partial to Burt Lancaster in Go Tell The Spartans , Frank Sinatra in Von Ryan's Express , Sean Connery in The Man Who Would Be King, and Humphry Bogart in Treasure of the Sierra Madre.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive...those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Damn it Gabriel, you stole my # 1!!! ;-)

Desmond Llewelyn in his last appearance as Q in The World Is Not Enough. A very classy exit for a great actor. "Always have an escape plan."

Yeah more rampant Ridley Scott fanboyism from me here, but I've also always liked:
Russell Crowe in Gladiator - the gradual zoom in on that ethereal door as he dies, the whole "coming home/joining his wife and child" thing

Classic Carpenter has great exit scenes. My personal favorite was Lt. Dolittle's exit in Dark Star.
