I was watching the film The Thin Man the other day and noticed how the lead character of Nick Charles (William Powell) is introduced to the audience from behind. He is first seen shaking a martini shaker in long view and then the camera comes up directly behind him for a close-up through the crowd. That got me to thinking about how effective and likeable I find this device and got me thinking about other films which took advantage of this to introduce the lead character (male of female). I then thought of: Indiana Jones James Bond T.R. Devlin (Cary Grant) in Notorious. Also, certainly one of the longest uses of the device as we see the back of his head for quite a while. So, what other notable lead roles can you add to the list?
