There are so many that stand out, but I noticed one that stood out in
my mind last night while watching Dogfight. I had only watched the
film once before I bought the DVD recently, and for some reason the
film didn't resonate with me until I watched it a second time last
night. Dogfight really is a beautiful film. The characters are so
endearing, and each one brings something totally unique to the film.
There's a scene after Eddie leaves Rose's house and he's going back
to the base: One shot of River running down Broadway Street in North
Beach of San Francisco with the Bay Bridge in front of him at dawn
with the lovely Bob Dylan song "Don't Think Twice It's Alright"
playing. Maybe it's because I live in San Francisco and I too have
been down that same street at that same time of day and seen that
view, or maybe because I'm a Bob Dylan fan, but the scene just really
touched me for some reason.
Other scenes I love are the campfire scene in Stand By Me, and the
confession scene to Martha Plimpton in Running on Empty. But right
now, River's running down Broadway scene in Dogfight really means
something to me. I watched it over and over again on my DVD last
night. Stranger still, I realized after watching the film again last
night I lived very near that neighborhood at the time they were
filming Dogfight. Id love to hear everyone else's favorite River
scenes if they would like to share.

Well, I haven't seen too many of River's films, but right now my
favorite scene is probably when he confesses the Martha in Running
On Empty. It's a wonderful scene, so touching.

I love all of Stand By Me, I don't know if I can pick just one
scene....I like the scene where Chris tells Gordy that he didn't
take the money. It's sad, especially after hearing the story of how
River kept crying even after the camera was off, but it's a great
scene. I also like the campfire scene in Stand By Me, that's
priceless

That's it, for now...great thread!

I have many favourite River scenes esp.from Running on empty, stand by me,
Dogfight and MOPI...
I will first begin with Dogfight then.Yes, it´s such a beautiful moving
film. Everytime I watch it, I love it a bit more.
awww.. Thomas, thanks for sharing your favourite river scene in Dogfight. I
remembered that scene. The bridge looks so beautiful and yeha , I love Bob
Dylan´s song on the background. I attached the pic from that scene. Thomas,
will you able to take some pics of the street and bridge and post here? I
would really love to see it. Btw, we will have a photo gallery in ATW soon..
It´s pretty cool if we will have pics taken by members on River´s film
locations.
I really love the close up shot of Eddie when Rose was singing what have
they done to the rain in the bar. It looks like Eddie was completely blown
away by Rose´s beautiful voice.
I also love the scene when they danced and started kissing each other in
front of the Mozart ( plate?) Whats the melody in the background? It sounds
very familiar.
At the end, when Eddie went in the Rose´s cafe and he said Rose.. she
replied Hi and then Eddie replied Hi ... Rose gave Eddie a hug and they
hugged for long and had tears in eyes.. It´s so touching to see this scene.
They are my favourite River scenes in Dogfight.. more to come with other
River films. gotta go for lunch at first..
cya,
Deb

Thanks so much for posting that wonderful still shot from the movie
Debbie. They really did that scene beautifully. I was watching the
director's commentary on my Dogfight DVD and apparantly they had
already finished shooting and wrapped when Nancy Savoca noticed the
beutiful view of the San Francisco Bay Bridge when they were standing
at the top of Broadway street in North Beach. She told River to just
start running down the street. I really like that scene because it in
some ways reminds me of the end of Stand By Me where River is fading
off into the scenery while he's walking away. "Don't Think Twice It's
Alright" is a song about saying goodbye also and it makes the scene
even more sad. I felt really emotional each time watching that scene.
I know Ive been promising to take some shots of those scenes for
awhile. I'm going to do that this week for sure. There are really
only 4 spots in San Francisco from what I can see where they shot
since most of Dogfight was filmed in Seattle: Union Square when they
step off the cable car, City Lights Bookstore on Columbus Street in
North Beach, next to the Tunnel Top bar over the Stockton Tunnel on
Bush Street, and the beautiful shot of River running down Broadway
Street at dawn. I'll do my best to get some good shots of those
places this week.
Thomas

Here are some of my favourite scenes in Stand by me:
When Chris told Gordie " wish the hell i was your dad. You wouldnt be
going around talking about taking these stupid courses if i was. its
like God gave you something, man. all those stories that you can make
up. And he said this is what we got for you, kid, try not to lose it.
but kids lose everything unless there´s someone there to look after
them. and if your parents are too f***ed up to do it, then maybe i
should.

I really like that part. Chris seems to be so mature. He´s beyond his
years and he just cares for Gordie so much.

Then the Milk money part ( actually, its my most fave part in SBM )
It´s sad and moving to see Chris in this scene. " I just wish that
I could go some place where nobody knows me "

I also like this part when Gordie and Chris said goodbye.. Chris
said " give me some skin " Gordie: I ´ll see you" Chris " Not if I
see you first" It´s really sweet.

Deb
