Dersu Uzala

The Gold Rush
Ice Station Zebra (a bit of a guilty pleasure)
Barbarella
Eureka
Groundhog Day, the repeated scene with the snowball fight is a wonderful piece of comic acting from Murray. (Sorry, I realise this is out of Forum)
Alexander Nevsky (kind of an ice/snow combo)
Dekalog 1 (again more ice than snow...maybe I should start an ice thread before I go off topic completely..)
LOL, and a great list there. My other half just suggested another title - Snow Falling on Cedars, on telly apparently yesterday. It's a 1999 flick, so it doesn't qualify for this forum: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120834/

I've not seen it, though apparently it's worth a look.

Also, Misery.

Valley of the Dolls (1967) has some gorgeous snow scenes that were filmed in New England.

The Grinch - even starts with a snow flake (I think ).

And strangely, It's a wonderful life has been mentioned but White Christmas hasn't!!!! (Snow, snow, snow, snow, SNOW.....to paraphrase the scene on the train!)

Isn't this the stupidest thread in the history of the Universe? Next we'll be having films with water in them, air in them, films that run 114 minutes, films that start with crane shots, films with badgers, or beavers . . . the best film with an Aga kitchen or a Ford Fiesta with a spoiler. Come on chaps, let's get a life, huh?

Life can wait!

Meanwhile, there are at least three Hitchcocks with winter-sports scenes:
TMWKTM, 1934
Spellbound
Mr & Mrs Smith

The Servant is a wintery picture throughout but I think the pretty snow is limited to the stately-home scenes.

Off the beaten track, there is an early Carole Lombard talkie misleadingly called High Voltage. A coachload of travellers are forced to take refuge in an isolated church, when snow blocks their route.

Incidentally, the snow in Winter Light is symbolic enough but Bergman relied on God to supply it. Instead he supplied continuity issues. The remake will have CGIs and snowmen. And Agas.

Indeed. To take the point to its conclusion, why are we all contributing to an internet forum? Not exactly "a life". And one thread is surely as valid as another. If Mr Armbruster doesn't like it... yada yada. I seem to recall posting in a Big Brother thread a year ago, stating what a pointless waste of time it all was. I was lambasted, and told in no uncertain terms not to post in a thread I had no real interest in. I'll let the point hang there...
