What are your favorite scenes in the rain?

Wait, come back! Not a frivolous thread. No more than the ext one, anyway.

At my cinema we have a bulletin board, and rather than decorate it with ready-made stuff from the teacher shop, I thought I'd decorate it for April with images from rainy scenes in movies, tying into "April Showers". I've come up with a few, but I'd love to know what else you suggest, and if there's a particularly striking image (or better yet, a screenshot) that you think would look cool.

Examples:
Gene Kelly on the lamppost in Singin' in the Rain
The "I'm glad it's you" shootout in Road to Perdition
The upside-down kiss in Spider-man (Not the bit a few seconds later. This is a family joint)
Kid Magneto's scuffle at the beginning of X-Men


(No video games please, Heavy Rain fans...)

Nice!

Particularly recognizable characters with umbrellas work too. (Too bad it doesn't rain in Batman Returns.)

Agreed, the following image is a bit too large and may cause problems for reader's browsers:

My answer is the same as before: the bus stop scene in My Neighbor Totoro.

The scene in Platoon when Charlie Sheen's character -- hidden under a poncho -- falls asleep on watch, wakes up, and spots a group of VC approaching.

No mention of Shawshank Redemption yet? I'll toss some love to Chasing Amy too.

just for the hell of it. Goddamn. It's just so powerful. Rooney's line w/ Mike's reaction to what he's about to do...fucking emotinal.

It's good. I love the ending.

Good calls on Seven Samurai and Blade Runner.


This scene from Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

One of my favorite rain scene which I previously posted but deleted, is Daredevil when Affleck kisses Elektra on the roof. Very nice scene...pretty romantic and sad kinda.
