    "The Untouchables" has Robert De Niro as Al Capone being shaved with a straight. Capone startles at one point and as a result the barber nicks him. There is the shot of the barber's face in a look of horror as he thinks he is going to be killed.

    I've seen a couple of silent movies that had straight shaves in them, but their title escapes me at the moment.

    It doesn't have to be a shaving scene. It has only to feature a straight razor.

    In Captains Courageous Manuel loses his new razor in a bet with Long Jack after Harvey cheated by tangling Long Jack's fishing lines.

    The Matrix's Twins(The Ghosts) use straight razors(modified) as their weapons of choice. In A Clockwork Orange, Alex should have used a straight, as that was his weapon of choice in the book.

    In the movie Matewan, C.E. Lively cut a kid's throat with one.
