I like this series!

Thanks, Kimberly! I wanted to make the first ones kind of clear but there are several others down the road (I started collecting screengrabs of the start of every movie I watch, I'm weird) where it's an extra or someone with one line but they're the first face or body seen.

I'm already hooked on grabbing film frames for "Visionary Film" "Signs and Meaning" and "Frame Within A Frame" so now I've got something also to obsess over (I'm weird too). way to go Greg!

Might I suggest The Magus? Not a very good movie, but the first line is delivered by John Fowles, author of the original novel, who is impersonating a Greek boatman. Not sure if his is the first face, though.

Favorite series already. Thanks!

I suggest a series titled 'Dead Copycats,'
but the number may get astronomical. ;^)

"I believe in America."

One of the best first lines in the history of (sound) film.
