    In the "Crossfire Trail," Tom Selleck walks into a barber shop in need of a "Bath and a shave." The barber says, "Shave first, no use getting blood on a clean body."
    I strop my razor with my eyes closed.

    How about Family Guy from this past Sunday, when the guys go over to shave Quagmire's cat with a straight. It doesn't go so well, for most of the cat's lives

    In Gran Torino, right before the final confrontation, Clint Eastwood readies himself by getting a haircut from his good barber friend. At the end of the cut, he asks his friend if he could give him a straight shave. Kind of taken aback, his friend tells him he'll go heat up a towel.

    Although you never actually see a razor or even a strop, it's all a sweet implication. I'm sure IRL Clint Eastwood doesn't shave with a straight razor. He probably uses a God-awfully sharp machete or bowie knife.

    In one of the Jason Bourne movies Bourne fights a guy in an apartment in Morocco. The fight progresses into a small bathroom where a straight is picked up by his attacker and he defends himself with a towel! really great fight scene.

    Funny you should mention that! I was shaving the other night and had the TV in the bedroom on. Some show was on that had something to do with WWII and Nazis (only caught the voices). At the time I was using a razor I'd just bought on Ebay, that was allegedly a "war take-home" from Germany, and I'd just finished cleaning and sharpening it and was doing a test shave with it. I started wondering if maybe it had been used by a soldier who was a Nazi that had maybe done bad things and all that - and that if i nicked myself would some supernatural stuff come racing into my bloodstream... About that time I DID nick myself and decided screw this! And went for a new Dovo. I really need to keep my imagination in check when I'm shaving! :-)

    Everyone remembers the camp fire scene, but Gene Wilder shaves with a straight in Blazing Saddles.

    Just saw a man use a straight in the very beginning of the Swedish film Ådalen 31 (Ã…dalen 31 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) from 1969 about the Ådalen shootings (Ã…dalen shootings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    lol, the new sweeny todd with johnny depp is stupid, its for girls into musicals. the old made for tv one with ben kingsley, a horror instead of a musical, si much more realistic and just a better movie.
