    Purely out of curiousity, does anyone know roughly when the "opening scene" became the norm for films?
    Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

      Scroll up the page, Miss Saigon beat you to it in post 39 of this thread.

      Miss Saigon posted the opening credit haircut bit. I was referring to the first full scene in the movie where the gunnery sergeant reams out all of the recruits.

        The creepy part about that scene was that after it was over, because he was drunk, Sheen had a severe heart attack. Creepy.

        The intro to that film is incredible, though. One of the most thought-provoking films ever made, IMHO.

            'Saving Private Ryan' by a mile. The opening scene where the music suddenly changes and old Ryan walks up to the Normandy War Memorial and we see the lone fellow paratrooper by himself is very touching and moving, especially when you have grown to dedicate yourself to read and admire the many touching stories about D-day and those who fought during World War Two.

              Another great opening was the one to "The Pianist;" not exactly a war film but WWII-related. That was a great movie.
