Movie Clip

Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (1969) -- Raindrops... Butch (Paul Newman) awakens Etta (Katharine Ross) with his new bicycle, on which they romp to B.J. Thomas' singing Burt Bacharach and Hal David's hit "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head," in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969.
Lizzie (1957) - Warm And Tender First scene with Eleanor Parker (title character, heretofore mousy “Elizabeth), acting up anywhere other than in her own mirror, Johnny Mathis the singer, his first appearance in his only movie, with an early Bacharach/David tune, Ric Roman as a co-worker not quite recognizing her, in Lizzie, 1957.
Blob, The (1958) - Beware Of The Blob The title song a landmark on its own, tacked on by Paramount studios which bought and distributed the movie, with delightful graphics and the tune by then-unknown Burt Bacharach and Mack (brother of Hal) David, from The Blob, 1958, starring Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut.
Send Me No Flowers (1964) - Title Song, Feeling Low? Leading lady Doris Day sings the distinctive Burt Bacharach-Hal David title tune, and leading man Rock Hudson groans his way through an opening gag narrated by Herb Vigran, opening the two stars' last feature together, Send Me No Flowers, 1964, co-starring Tony Randall.
What's New, Pussycat? (1965) - You Are Serious Adulterer! Tom Jones with the hit title tune by Burt Bacharach and Hal David over the gaudy credits, and an opening scene that sounds like a surviving piece of Woody Allen’s original screenplay, Peter Sellers as shrink Fassbender, at war with his burly wife (Eddra Gale), opening What’s New, Pussycat?, 1965.
Casino Royale - Between Mind And Body Dusty Springfield with Bacharach ad David's The Look Of Love, as timid Baccarat genius Evelyn Tremble (Peter Sellers) gets reeled in by super-spy Vesper Lynd (Ursula Andress), in the James Bond spoof Casino Royale. 1967.
