Hey all,

I need (tonight) youtube clips of classic film dialogue.

Here's the kind of thing I need (ideally without the bloody subtitles)... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sRwUFob18A

It needs to have tension, drama, and def no swearing (it's for school kids).

Anyone help? Cheers

Possibly not suitable, ie. the burning alive bit, but the closing scene of The Wicker Man is fantastic.

A great clip, however possibly not for the dialogue alone. Couldn't really show it to a class of 12 year olds.

Thank you anyway.

I'm away to bed now, so will check here again tomorrow.

Many thanks

Thanks, but I have monologue (From Gladiator - so much to choose from!)

Thanks again.

No problem. How about this from Fight Club?

Aside from the audio being a second out of sync, this would have been perfect....then it gets spoiled with the "comedy" captions toward the end. Gaah

There are some great clips going up here but some don't have tension or drama, just "cool lines"...

Thanks Jon! Jesse deserved that Oscar. I fear that the film is being too quickly forgotten. It is an instant classic.

Miller's Crossing's "look in your heart" scene in the woods would be ideal but I can't find a proper clip of it :-(

Bit lo-res. Bit sweary. Bit monologue when you wanted dialogue. Maybe not realy tense. But hey ho

Good plan - he needs it non-sweary so look at older films. Nice thinking! :-)

In reply to Tony the Blade:

No swearing. Maybe a bit "monologue" rather than dialogue (but WATCH the supporting actors!)

All your best stuff will come from old court-room drama :-)

and something from Inherit Wind, maybe this? But not as tense as the Nuremberg stuff...

Possibly the most drawn-out tense scene I've ever seen ( you think it's all over after 8 minutes but it just goes ON!)
Probably too long for your needs, and lacking in dialogue. And violent.

I've only just watched the clip linked in the OP.
I think my recommendations might be irrelevant! I was going off "It needs to have tension, drama" as opposed to "Here's the kind of thing I need". I don't sense much tension or drama in the dialogue on your clip, so I'm not sure exactly what you are after (unless there is more tension in that dialogue than it appears on the surface...but I have seen this film, in the last 3 months and on the big screen, so I don't think I've overlooked any nuances...hmm)

In reply to Tony the Blade:

Anyway. Blindingly obvious perhaps...and there is more to it (dialogue wise) for many minutes more beforehand, and I'm sorry there is a massive logo over it (maybe you can find a better clip?)

Damn you, this thread has kept me up way beyond my bedtime! Before I go delving into Tunes of Glory, have at this - another "The Field" clip (it has a "bloody" in it though)

Wowsers! A huge thank you to you all - especially our resident film buff, Blue. (I had an inckling that you'd take a hold of this)

Ended up with the Chinatown clip. It had everything that was needed.

For the record, the Dead Man's Shoes clip I meant to post was this one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqDqyKGtoKE Brilliant, but too sweary.

Thanks again - job done!

Actually I didn't really. For some reason Chinatown sprang IMMEDIATELY to mind as an obvious contender, odd because I've only seen it once and it was more than 18 years ago, it's not like it's a big favourite of mine. It is a very famous denouement though, maybe that is why it sticks in my head.
