We now have 3 nominees for greatest opening scene ever, keep 'em coming.
There were several that I thought of in addition to, but not named yet.
I can't really watch the opening of Saving Private Ryan - not the battle sequence but the scene in the American cemetery in Normandy.
I imagine there are a lot of great opening sequences in action movies like James Bond/Raiders of the Lost Ark type openings, but I would kind of rule all of those out without even thinking about them.
When I think of great movie openings, the first scene from the Godfather is probably it.
