Favorite movie entrances, and an exit too!

I recently watched Gilda for the first time on the World's Best Movie Channel (TM), TCM. If that movie doesn't contain one of the greatest entrances in the history of movies, I don't love movies. See for yourself.

Guaranteed to make every man in the room say "DA-YAM." 

As it happens, the divine Ms. Hayworth's husband has at least two. Here's the best, from The Third Man.

And another, from Citizen Kane. Come to think of it, this counts as an entrance AND an exit at the same time:

Here's an entrance that almost never gets mentioned: Judy Garland in Girl Crazy, about 1:38 in.

I second that wolf whistle. Judy was truly underrated as a beauty.

Then there's the mother of them all, Grace Kelly in Rear Window.

Oh, I'm sorry, I got distracted.

Anyway, my list is hardly all inclusive. Include some more by telling me some of your favorite movie entrances.
