    Default The Straight Razor in Film

    Any film buffs out there? I love movies and movie trivia ("Leave the gun. Take the cannolis.") I know of many flicks with at least one scene in which a straight razor play a prominent role. Of course we know of the recent Tim Burton musical, oh damn the title escapes me just now. However I do remember the 1980 Brian DePalma flop Dressed to Kill in which Angie Dickenson gets slashed to death with a straight razor.

    Anyone else?

    Lot's of Cowboy/Wild West films have shaving scenes in them.

    My fav remains "Last Tango in Paris". Dark, disturbing, violent movie, but what a great straight scene.

    "Eastern Promises" There is a straight scene right at the begining, and the one the most intense fight scenes I've seen toward the end.

    "Pan's Labyrinth" Nice little shaving scene.

    I know that I know movies, more to come.

    Default Speed Racer

    Speed Racer has a creepy white haired Asian who crouches on cars like some sort of half human half cat freak... He uses a straight at one point... Realistic sound effect on it too. :P

    "Barry Lyndon" There is a scene where he is using a razor from a seven day set.

    There have been a few times when I've been channel-surfing and caught someone using a straight. It's usually been westerns, though, which I'm not terribly fond of, so as soon as the shaving was finished, I moved on. My love for the TV series M*A*S*H grew a few weeks ago when I saw an episode in which Col. Potter shaved himself with a straight. (I think it's "Mail Call Again" in season 4.)

    It's so frustrating to see someone lathered up, razor in hand, and then... they get interrupted and don't actually shave. *sigh*

    I seen a movie once where a straight was cursed and a guy cut himself then the soul of the previous owner took over and was a serial killer. Don't remember the name but good film.

    There was a brief scene in Prison Break season 3 where a dude shaved Lachero's head, having the scales extended like it were a knife.

    Scent of a woman had a brief scene.

    The Green Mile, they used one to shave the Native American's head before execution.

    Thats all I can think of, off the top of my head.

    There is a shaving scene in Event Horizon. Right before everything goes nutso. But the guy has the blade angle all wrong, sigh.

    Talk about shaving angle… though not a “movie” I remember a scene in the series The Twilight Zone (the old TZ, season, 3 episode 1 staring Elizabeth Montgomery & Charles Bronson titled “Two”) with Charles shaving himself in an abandoned barber shop… the razor angle was about 90 degrees... and he got BBS too!
