comment Help! Need title of British 1970s crime movie
Do you have any reason to suppose the movie itself was British? Or is that implicit in like The Sweeney?

comment In “Les diaboliques”, how does Christina feign death?
I agree Les diaboliques contains many ambiguities (including "character motivation" as well as "what happens"). I don't see this as being an outstandingly good or bad aspect of the movie, but there's no doubt in my mind that the 1996 remake goes out of its way to address these issues, and deserves more credit than it's net IMDB rating of 5.1 would suggest.

@AidanO: I'm not sure which bit of what I said in my comment would have made a difference, but please feel free to edit the question to reflect it - or anything else you think might "improve" it. The more I think about it, the more it seems to me questions seeking to identify movies by citing some "iconic scene" may actually become quite useful as part of a "knowledge database". It's usually easy to identify iconic lines of dialogue just through Google, but getting the right search terms for visual elements is a bit trickier - movies.se could end up being quite good for that.

comment Western with extremely sweat-lathered horses
@AidanO: Not my call really, but I would say in the movie it's hardly "sweaty" horses - they look like they've had cans of shaving foam emptied all over them! I thought it was quite striking, and it's possible others may remember the scene but not recall much else about what the movie was about or what it was called. If someone asked on writers.se "I read this book where the narrator wrote of how eating a small tea-cake brought back vivid memories of childhood", would that not be a good question?

@Nobby: I am intrigued, so I probably will (don't tell anyone else, but stuff like that I normally nick via torrents! :)

@Nobby: I haven't seen it - I was never a fan of silent movies, and don't know anything Keaton did after the "talkies" came in. But he must have been on his last legs in that one, since he died in 66 when it was released.

@TylerShads: I do think the "lathered horses" scene, which is very near the end of the movie, is quite memorable. Given it's quite an old movie, someone else may have seen it a long time ago, and only be able to remember that aspect. So unless question and/or answer get many downvotes I guess I'll assume it is a good question. Even if I did happen to find the answer myself!
