The final scene of "The Days of Wine and Roses",

"A year passes since Joe has had a drink. He now has a job, and he and daughter Debbie (Debbie Megowan) are living in their own apartment. One day, he pays a visit to Kirsten's father, Ellis 'Pop' Arnesen (Charles Bickford), in order to apologize and make amends for some of the money that he and Kirsten wasted on booze and to ask how Kirsten is faring. At first, Pop tells him that Kirsten is at the movies. After Pop releases his anger at Joe for getting Kirsten started drinking, he admits that Kirsten hasn't been home in three days and that, two weeks earlier, she had to be hospitalized because of her drinking. Several nights later, Kirsten pays Joe a visit, just after Joe has put Debbie to bed. She claims that she hasn't had a drink in two days and wants to come home to him and go back to the way it was when they first got together. Joe confesses his love for her but admits that he can't be around her as long as she keeps drinking. Kirsten explains that she can't stop...won't stop...because the world is so dirty when she's not drinking. Although Joe aches to take Kirsten back, he stands firm and refuses to go back to the way it was...'you and me and booze...a threesome.' He offers to let Kirsten see Debbie, but Kirsten chooses to leave. As Joe watches her out the window, Kirsten walks down the street, passes under the blinking 'Bar' sign, and crosses the street in the opposite direction. Debbie wakes up and asks if that was Mommy she heard, but Joe says it must have been a dream. Debbie asks when Mommy is coming home, Joe explains that Mommy is sick and can't come home until she's well, and puts Debbie back in bed. In the final scene, Joe stares out the window again, looking at the empty street while the 'Bar' sign flashes on and off."

I will add that Debbie asks if her mommy will ever get better, and Joe answers "I did".

As a parent and grandparent, I can't understand anyone who would choose booze over their child.

What about Samuel L Jackson in 'deep blue sea' ? Right in the middle of a typical American 'inspirational motivational' nauseating rant. :D

This is one of the 20thC greatest films, and arguably Kirk Douglas' and Kubrick's best.

Major Dax (Kirk) has just returned from a argument with his general after an unsuccessful defence of 4 men for cowardice resulting in a firing squad. The accused has been chosen at random from a group of French soldiers, among the few who had returned from a hopeless mission, against the German lines

He has to return to his men, now enjoying a drink with news that they are to return to the trenches and most probably to their deaths. His company of French soldiers jeer at the German girl paraded on stage for their amusement....

I think he was a pretty big name then too. It's the only scene I remember from that silly film.

George C Scott is amazing in this movie.

I checked out the trailer, could not get the final scene. Looks like pretty heavy stuff.

I agree, buy at the end of the day, he fails to go that final step into portraying Patton as the idiot that he was. Patton wanted to press on to Moscow. The world would have been a different place if he had done that, and either the official language of Europe would have been Russian, or Europe would have chosen to keep Russia its ally and the US would be an economic backwater.

Treat yourself. Buy the DVD.

Less than two quid.

The scent of a woman is great.
