A Supercut of 101 One-Armed Saves in Movies Set to “I Want to Hold Your Hand”


There’s nothing like falling off a cliff, only to have your best pal—or anyone, really—grab your hand just in time to drag you to safety.

This might not have ever happened to you, but it happens all the time in movies, and this video from designer Ryan Holland and the filmmakers at Lucky Treehouse compiles 101 of the best ones. They’re not all successful saves, and sometimes looks can be deceiving, as with Scar digging his claws into his dangling brother Mufasa’s paws from The Lion King, but you get the gist. 

And I challenge you to think of a better choice for the soundtrack than The Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”
