Crowd Sourcing trivia question--hanging by a rope.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to think of movies in which a character is climbing or descending via a rope which the camera shows us either gradually untying or fraying. Will the character make it up (or down) before the rope snaps/lets loose?

Can anyone think of examples where this device is used? Thanks.

Touching the Void

For Your Eyes Only

Cliffhanger

Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (poor little racoon)

Die Hard - although it's a hose, not a rope

Bridge to Terabithia - swinging on rope, not climbing or descending

Deliverance - John Voight climbing down the cliffside

Didn't this happen in The Two Towers?  But I feel like I've seen this a lot but can't recall any specific film or TV show, like having a word on the tip of the tongue but I cannot quite formulate it.  Anyway, IMDB lists 683 titles that have had "rope" assigned as a keyword. http://www.imdb.com/find?ref_=nv_sr_fn&q=rope&s=kw
