Speaking of the Joker, that was the first movie that I remember seeing Jack Nicholson in.  Dude gives me the creeps still. *shudder*

The first movie I saw Jack in was The Shining - talk about the creeps!  He was a teddy bear by comparison in Batman.  "Where does he get those wonderful toys?" Cheesy

When and where did you ever see your favorite actors/directors/producers come to light?
To continue on the Jack Nicholson theme:  One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
- Really early appearances of Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, and Will Sampson. 
- An uncredited appearance by Angelica Huston (not even a cameo - she was in the crowd at the docks.) 
- Responsible for the fact that I can't see Louise Fletcher in anything without immediately hating her.  She could be playing Mother Theresa and all I'd see was Nurse Ratchett. 
- And best of all, a brilliant performance from a lesser known actor who is one of my favorites - Brad Dourif.  (Best known these days as Grima Wormtongue.)

Thought of a couple more: 

Robert Duvall in To Kill a Mockingbird

Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now, and Donald Sutherland in Kelley's Heroes.  Hardly their first appearances (especially in Martin's case) but the earliest things I've seen them in.

(Though I quick look at IMDB shows that's not entirely true.  Donald actually did MASH before Kelley, it just seems like an earlier movie.)

Robert Duvall in To Kill a Mockingbird


To me, he'll always be Gus. And Tommy Lee Jones will always be Call.  That's where I first saw them.

And he was in "The Dirty Dozen" in 1967. Yet another of my favorite WWII flicks.

Yup.  I knew that Duvall had been Colonel Kilgore in Apocalypse Now.  It was years later I learned that Tommy Lee Jones had been the bad guy in The Package with Gene Hackman.  I will always see him as Captain Call.

Here's one: Donald Sutherland and Clint Eastwood in Kelly's Heroes. I had to be, like, ten or something, and my dad was watching it. First movie with Clint for me, and I adore him.

And Donald Sutherland is pretty much priceless in whatever he does.

Platoon, 1986.

You remember Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen and Willem Defoe, but do you remember Forrest Whitaker and Johnny Depp?

This was also Dale Dye's second movie.

One of the most moving aspects of this film is the use of Samuel Barber's Adagio in D, perhaps one of the most significant American compositions of all time.

Though imperfect (I have issues with the editing), Platoon is still a mile-marker in military drama in my book.

Johnny Depp: Platoon.

A minor role, of course, but if you watch the special features, he was really into it.

Charlie Sheen and Forrest Whitaker weren't too bad, either.

Nor Willem Defoe.

Nor Tom Berenger.

Nor Dale Dye.

Etc and so on.

"Memphis Belle" was just on AMC. Hadn't seen that in 15 years or so. Still love it.

I watched a few minutes of that when finished unloading boxes (my sis has satellite).  Sniper is on at seven. Wink

Over lunch I was watching Red Dawn.  Wow - Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Gray, Lea Thompson, Powers Boothe...wow.

Ja, I saw the last 15 minutes or so of "Red Dawn."

And after "Sniper" it's "Iron Eagle." I'm coughing from all the dust flyin' around... :-)

I remember Depp on TV: 21 Jump Street; I watched that show every week.

Laurence Fishburne in Apocalypse Now (He was EXCELLENT in Othello)

Al Pacino in Panic in Needle Park. I think that was his first film; I remember a lot of early films he acted in.

First thing I remember him in is And Justice for All, I think.  I really liked him in Scent of a Woman.
