8. Midnight Cowboy — the taxi
Dustin Hoffman literally projected himself into his character, the rascal Ratso. When Hoffman was unexpectedly almost hit by a taxi during the shooting, he started shouting at the driver, “I’m walking here! Get out of here!”
7. Casino Royale — the beach scene
This remarkable moment appeared in the movie by accident. Daniel Craig fell into the water, but the shooting was not stopped. Instead of another hot chick in a bikini, the audience saw Agent 007 in swim briefs. You must admit that it is more than just a decent substitution. By the way, those briefs were sold at auction for $72,000.
6. The Dark Knight — the hospital explosion
A technical glitch appeared during the shooting, and a series of explosions stopped unexpectedly. The reaction of Heath Ledger is a remarkable improvisation that saved the scene, as it was supposed to be shot from the first take because of the high cost of the pyrotechnic effects.
5. American Sniper — the scene with a baby
The baby that was supposed to act in this scene suddenly had a fever, and that’s why Bradley Cooper had to handle a plastic doll. The actor tried to act plausibly, but if you look more attentively, you can see him touching the fake baby’s hand to make it move.
