The absurd amount of artistry and good fortune that goes into creating a memorable and iconic movie scene is virtually immeasurable, typically a result of hundreds of craftstolk working in sync to solve problems and do their level best.
And while filmmakers typically can't resist gushing about how they executed an acclaimed sequence, often the juiciest details don't emerge until years later, especially in the case of classic movies release decades prior to the social media revolution.
And so, we have these 10 movie scenes, each of them beloved and totally unforgettable, having been assembled with an evidently ridiculous amount of care to ensure they resonated with audiences as deeply as possible.
But each also has a rather outlandish secret, an unexpected knack without which the scene wouldn't quite be the same. Above all else, these quirks and eccentricities are proof of just how much left-field creativity went into achieving each scene.
You'll never look at any of these scenes the same way again, that's for sure...
