My personal favorite for this movie.... Kurt Russel in the scene wheree hes coming out of the burning doorway with a child cradled in his one arm and an axe is his other hand his face is dirty, the kid is filthy, his jacket is open and reveals a very clean white t-shirt.

Actually Donald Sutherland played the old arsonist who taunted "Shadow", the character played by Robert DeNiro.
