Here's looking at you, kid!

One of the most beloved scenes ever filmed. The script and acting is all done perfectly. The special effects of the plane unfortunately have not aged well, but don’t hinder the power and drama of the scene.
The key is the performances from some very fine actors that are at the height of their careers, and will always be remembered for this scene, if nothing else in their illustrious careers. The characters just fit so well and are so charming and entertaining to watch.
This scene has been copied and parodied by just about everything in the last seventy years. So much that I even knew the dialogue before I had even seen the film, that it’s only problem. And that is no real bad thing.
