The Most Awe-Inspiring Scenes And Dialogue In Cinematic History

Even if you’re not a huge movie buff, there are some famous scenes in cinema that people tend to know instantly. It might be a scene such as the floating door in Titanic that people still argue about to this day, or a few-seconds long dialogue you happen to know word-for-word, like “there’s no place like home.”

Either way, when people bring one of those famous scenes up in conversation, we’d bet money you know exactly what they’re talking about and which movie. These scenes might not even be crucial to the plot, but they have a lasting impact that will be forever evergreen.

While The Sound of Music is known for its catalog of very catchy songs, it is also known for one of the more famous scenes in cinematic history. Interestingly, it’s the opening scene of the entire movie, when Julie Andrew’s character Maria is spinning around the hills and singing “the hills are alive, with the sound of music.”

It takes something special to have people remember the opening scene of an almost three-hour film. One fun fact about this scene is that the dress Maria wears is also very famous, sold at auction for $1.3 million!
