    Ben-Hur. When he walks away angry and Rozsa’s music comes to a crescendo, it’s still chilling to me. Also 2001 just cut to the word intermission.

    Even if you don't end up enjoying the movie, it's one of the very best Blu-ray transfers out there.

    Did River Kwai have an intermission, and if it did, why haven’t they included it on the Blu Ray or 4K UHD Blu Ray

    Always gives me chills when Judah walks away fast and that music comes up, you are like “what is going to come next”.

    I remember when Zulu ran in 70mm at the Casino in London in 1972 an intermission was put in.

    Of course all Italian films in their original versions had intermissions about an hour into the film so someone could go around and sell snacks. While this is mostly deleted on Blu-rays, I believe the Eureka Region 2 Blu of LE AMICHE has this.

    So many good ones, but another vote for THE SOUND OF MUSIC. As a kid, I was simply devastated that Maria was leaving.
