If you could see her in that shot you must have one heck of a monitor.

I'm pretty sure I'm wrong, but I'll throw it out anyway since it was the first thing to pop into my mind.


Suspiria?

Since the untimely death of James Horner I've been revisiting many of the films he scored. When people wrote about Horner's death one of the films that was frequently mentioned was Braveheart. An iconic score and instantly recognizable to fans.

The film itself is entertaining in Paul Bunyan-esque fashion. The script writer Randall Wallace was inspired by the Blind Harry poem - The Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace, Knight of Elderslie. There are a few historically accurate facts in the movie, there was a William Wallace and there was a Edward I (Longshanks). The two did battle with one another. William Wallace's torturous death is also documented. Everything else is pure fabrication by Randall Wallace (no relation). Historians had a field day pointing out the inaccuracies in the movie. This did not keep the film from winning Best Picture and Best Director. Strangely (IMO) Horner's nominated score lost out to The Postman that year. The movie had two positive effects - it increased Scottish pride and tourism.

You are sneaky. At first I didn't know what I was looking at. I happened to leave that picture up on my monitor when I went to get a cup of coffee. As I was walking back I glanced at the monitor from a distance and realized what it was. I still don't know exactly which one it's from but I have it narrowed down to 7 films.

I said it was emblematic, meaning this sequence was the blueprint for many to come, by this filmmaker and others. ,:]

One more hint: the woman has a nonspeaking role, is a dancer.

I recognized the "0" projected on her face from a distance yesterday. I knew it was from the opening of one of the 007 films, but couldn't remember which one it was.

It's a great travel film. Planes, trains, automobiles,... a few boats, even a stray helicopter.

Right you are, sir.



Supposedly the dancer Leila (the belly dancer in the Gypsy camp scene) was the dancer in the titles by Robert Brownjohn. In this very brief flash cut, 007 is projected on a screen, which appears to be drawn down very quickly, leaving her face with a "0" projected on it (you can barely see the red on her hair).



Also featuring the lovely, incomparable Nadja Regin in her first of two appearances in a Bond film (and Martine Beswick also made her first appearance here, after being unable to film in Dr. No).
