My favorite line: "The Horror, The Horror."
Sitting about 3 rows behind us in the sold out theater was Katherine Hepburn and her entourage. About 2/3rds of the way through the film she and her "people" got up and walked out while jabbering away disturbing the whole theater.
Also, I remember a bunch of Viet Nam vets who were there covering their heads during some of the explosion scenes as the sound (for 1979) was so realistic. That was way before anyone was aware of PTSD.
It is one of only 2 movies I own on DVD (BluRay) along with Platoon and that I have ever watch more than 2 times. Other films come close (Close Encounters, Godfather) but this is #1.
I know it's hard to pick just ONE film and of course the choice could largely depend on your age but this movie affected me more than any other I have ever seen. Even more than Animal House.
