100 Years Of Movies Told In 100 Of Their Most Memorable Shots

Get the popcorn ready.

Remember when Dorothy, Lion, Tin Woodman, and Scarecrow finally made their way to the Emerald City down the Yellow Brick Road? Or when Gene Kelly hopped up on a lamppost and sang in the rain?

And we bet you'll never forget when Rose and Jack stood at the front of the Titanic with their arms wide open, catching the breeze ever so perfectly.

Over the past 100 years, there has been some particularly iconic movies starring some of the biggest names to have ever graced Hollywood: James Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life (1946), Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Elijah Wood in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), and beyond.

And though we remember these movies for the impact they made on cinema as a whole, certain shots from each of the films will forever be ingrained in our minds.

That said, we were particularly interested to find Jacob T. Swinney's latest video compilation, "100 Years/100 Shots," which features Swinney's selections of the most memorable shots from the past 100 years of cinema.

"While many of these shots are the most recognizable in film history, others are equally iconic in their own right," Swinney captions his work, which was uploaded to Vimeo. "For example, some shots pioneered a style or defined a genre, while others tested the boundaries of censorship and filmgoer expectations. If anything, I want this video to be a reminder as to why we all love cinema so much."


Mission accomplished.
