The amount of creative work that goes in to creating an excellent scene is mind-boggling – it's no wonder that there's so much money in Hollywood. It's not just A-list actors' notoriously large salaries – every scene needs cameras, lighting, stage/scene equipment, props, furniture, and people to create/operate all of this equipment. Many locations can involve closing important through-ways for hours at a time, certainly a costly endeavor.

In the end, however, all of that work is worth it – especially when the directors, producers and other staff create a timeless work of art. Please add your favorite movie scenes to this list!
