    I'm looking for two scenes from the movie.

    1) Where spencer tracy drives down the ramp onto the PCH (ca 1).

    2) Where Edie Adams is taking a drink at a water fountain and spots
    the "big w".

    If anyone has the movie can you rip the scenes and post somewhere

    Also would like the opening overture as an MP3.

    "Just for you asshole I'm gonna explain this so maybe you can

    Yeah, I haven't forgotten.

    I found both of the above in under 2 minutes, already on the net.

    Find it yourself. You can do it.

    Best of luck.

    Uh yep. And using google, you get tons of references to the group "mad
    men" which has nothing to do with the movie theme other than having
    the same name. Which in turn, gives a you a zillion hits of totally
    unrelated crap.

    I'm not looking for the full length movie. Just the two clips.
    I've found a few dozen sites that have screen shots of various parts,
    but not the scenes I want.

    I even tried dogpile and they couldn't come up with any relevant hits

    The main problem with search engines is, they rely to much on hitting
    on just one single word, and all of it's offshoots, way to much.

    Nowhere did I mention Google, did I?

    Try Usenet. Both the movie, and the soundtrack are on Usenet.

    Yes, you'll need to download the movie the extract the scenes you

    Thanks to my supplier, they have added a neat search feature. It only took a few
    seconds to look through 80,000 newsgroups. Thanks to that, I was able to find
    the mp3 that I had requested in one group. Agent overlooked it. So now I've got
    that and I'm waiting on agent to download the headers for the movie group.

    Evan Platt Guest offers Grabit Usenet search. Very useful.

    And if you know that your song is from say the 60's, you can narrow
    your search down to oh say 5-10 groups even without a search.

    Well after seeing just the basic info on the file available, no

    I'm not wasting my time downloading a 2 1/2 hour long movie just to
    get a couple of scenes. So I'll see if I can buy a copy or rent one

    Do you mean "free user" with rapidshare? Not so. It's just a bit
    slower, is all. OK, a LOT slower but it gets there.....eventually. :)

    Yes I have, idiot, and I prefer NOT to mess with it.
    I said scenes, not the entire movie.

    Because ... uhhh .. Yeah, that's what people share on the internet -
    scenes from movies. Not the entire movie.

    You could try youtube, but that's unlikely to find the two scenes you
    want, or just download the entire movie and be done with it.
