F&L 45

First and Last: the first image after the opening credits and the last shot before the final credit scroll.


Can you guess the movie?

Before doing this series I had no idea how often filmmakers liked to begin or end or being and end their pictures with shots of the water. Cinema is dripping with the stuff!

Highlight for the answer if you're stumped: THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD (1974)

NAMASTE is correct.

these answers are all fun in their own ways though.

I don't know if "1492" would qualify as a "fun" answer, Nathaniel. Wasn't the subtitle to that film "The Conquest of Paradise" or something?

Namaste said...

yay ;) i used to love the sinbad movies when i was a child.

As a kid I loved "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad," especially the cyclops sequence.

Mutiny on the Bounty....oh, I love those Sinbad movies! they are awful and boring, but I still love them!

What about the films that begin and end with other elements? Air? Fire? Earth?

I think this is the first time where so many of the first guesses were of different movies.
