Nope, Ennis wears his corduroy jacket before Jack mentions the sweet life. After Jack's comment he sits up and puts his hat on.





Thanks for clearing that up, Chrissi. I really should have just gone to Striped Wall myself, but I don't go there often enough so I always find it a little confusing getting around. You are such a whiz at it that when something comes up, you probably just think, "Oh, Ennis in the "sending up a prayer" scene? That would be good old screencap No. 3,478 -- one of my favorites!"

What's the Striped Wall?? ???

I've always been curious about where folks (like Chrissi!) get all of their great film stills.  I usually get mine via hit-or-miss google image searches, etc.

The galllery at http://www.stripedwall.com/

I spent a HUGE amount of time there recently gathering all of the images for the Tarot Deck. And now I have a wonderful collection of my favorite screen caps! But it took me about 6 hours of work!!

Yup, it's an invaluable resource! I sometimes think the site could be a bit more intuitively organized -- at least for me, I find it difficult to get around, there's a lot of hit-and-missing involved -- but you couldn't ask for a better collection of BBM pix (and screencaps from some other movies, too, if you're interested).

 :laugh: No, it's not like that. But I know my way around the scenes in BBM, therefore it's easy to search for a specific picture.

But in the past stripedwall had been more convenient to use. They used to have BBM divided into six sections and you could directly click on the part of the movie you're looking for. Now you have to browse through the whole movie if you're looking for a scene from the end. At least you can go in big steps, always forwarding to the next 500 pics.

One tip: it's better to bookmark directly the first page with BBM screencaps, so you don't have to navigate around their site every time. Here's the link: http://www.stripedwall.com/gallery.php?page=movies/Brokeback
I looove stripedwall. It's by far the biggest collection of BBM screencaps. God bless them and let them keep it up forever.

Thanks Chrissi!

I'd forgotten about Ennis wearing that yellow jacket earlier.

Also, now looking at this pic:


<img src="http://www.divshare.com/img/3121106-7ba.jpg" border="0" />


It occurs to me that Jack is also wearing an unusual jacket.  It's not his normal green coat with the fuzzy collar.


Yup, you're right. Here's a better pic of the jacket. It's not actually in the movie (and therefore not on stripedwall), but provides a good look at the jacket. It's the only time we see him in this jacket/raincoat.



When they go down the mountain, they both wear only shirts. When the sheep are counted, both wear raincoats. When they part at Jack's truck, both wear their usual jackets.

Geez!!!  I don't know how I survived all this time without knowing about and using this website!  Just awesome. I finally checked this site out this evening.

And, Chrissi, thanks for the specific link to the Brokeback page... I was very confused when I went to the main Striped Wall page initially and tried to navigate from there.  I kept getting error messages.

But, this link you provided here worked just fine!

Really, this totally rocks!  :D :-*

Aww, you're welcome sweetheart  :-*

I also don't know how any Brokie can survive without the stripedwall site  :laugh:
The only less than optimal thing is that the screencaps are pretty dark. But with Picasa it's easy to brighten them up.
