I don't have any pics but there is a straight razor shave scene in 'Misery' with James Caan and Cathy Bates.

Just saw this and thought I'd ask if anyone could see the type of razor.

I was watching the 5/9 episode of "Moonlight" and saw the lead character pull out what was supposed to be a WWII-era Gillette out of his army footlocker. It appeared to be an Old type at first, but the lower part of the head doesn't look right and the lower part of the handle looked odd for a Gillette.

What type of Gillette was this?

Looks like an old 4 piece (meaning two head pieces and two handle pieces) travel razor. The reason it looks so weird though is because the head is put together upside down.

Yep. In fact, it looks like it's correctly assembled in the first shot and then assembled with the lower part of the head upside down as it goes into the bag. Interesting.

This is from a Japanese movie called "Floating Weeds" (Ukigusa).
A traveling kabuki play has come to town and the actors are passing out fliers while at the same time hitting on girls.
This actor finds his way to the local barbershop.
Image
It just so happens that the barber's daughter gives str8 shaves and happens to be very pretty:
Image
She wipes the razor on what looks to be newspaper:
Image
Image
Image
Her father is either honing a blade or washing something in the corner. I still can not tell:
Image
Image
She continues:
Image
Image
The customer keeps hitting on her so she has to turn his head away to finish the shave:
Image
Image
Image
And in walks the actor with his fliers:
Image
He hits on her and she blushes, but he is just one of many who doesn't stand a chance with her and does not get the date, although she does come to the play.
Image
Image
It kind of reminds me of these youtube videos:

Theres a scene where Tony Stark is captured with some Doctor guy and Stark wakes up to the guy dry shaving with a DE razor.

I don't think I saw any mention of this scene from The Royal Tenenbaums. A little gruesome, but not overly graphic.

The blade doesn't even look like a DE.

Yep - I thought it was a Contour at first, but on second look it's an older, fancier, more D Irving friendly one...

How can we forget Dumb & Dumber?

A Barber was shaving Lloyd (Jim Carrey), Lloyd had moved real quick and put his hand on his neck and proceeded to squirt kechup like he was bleeding to death. The barber fainted, great movie.

John
Speaking of Dumb and Dumber,
Here they are getting pampered:

Image
And then he gets the shave:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
And then another bad movie shaving cut!
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
The barber faints:
Image
Image
The ketchup!
Image
His buddy laughs, yet the masseuse does not find it amusing:

Anyone remember the shaving scene in The Seven Samurai, where the head Samurai guy got his topknot cut off and his head shaved so he could pose as a priest to kill a kidnapper? I never understood how symbolic the act of cutting off a topknot was until I listened to the commentary track by a Kurasawa expert. The act was really unthinkable for a Samurai.

Oooh, I forgot about this scene. Looks like a 40's style SS or an Adjustable FatBoy maybe.

a shaving scene in A Bronx Tale
Thanks for finding that one Danny!
I was going to add it as pics, but my dvd was cracked and they will not be re-releasing it for a while. And I wasn't going to bother getting it off of ebay.
I never thought to look on youtube for it.

There is a very brief shaving scene in "The Great Race".... Tony Curtis is lathering up and using a straight while Natalie Wood is attempting to distract him while in her undergarments.


No... I don't have pics. Find them for yourselves, you leches. :P

There is a scene with George Harrison in "A Hard Days Night" where he is speaking to the group's manager while shaving in a hotel room bathroom.

I saw this one last night - as I mentioned to my wife, he's probably going to have to hone that razor now.

Odd how often "cut throat" razors are shown in scenes where no attempt is made to shave anything or anyone. If they were called "kitten stroking" razors maybe they wouldn't pop into people's minds as weapons quite so much.
