Whether they're dealing with dance moves or onscreen violence, one might expect a director and his actors to choreograph their actions with surgical precision. But in the infamous torture scene that's pivotal to Reservoir Dogs, such precision was deemed unnecessary. With the script offering the slightest of direction - “Mr. Blonde maniacally dances around” - director Quentin Tarantino placed his faith in actor Michael Madsen’s ability to spontaneously conjure the scene’s intended madness. Though initially hesitant, Madsen ultimately acquiesced to Tarantino’s vision, plunging headfirst into the scene without the aid of rehearsals or musical preparation. It took only three takes for Tarantino to call “cut” and move onto the next scene.

Dirty Dancing - The Crawl

In 1987, Dirty Dancing set hearts ablaze with its steamy portrayal of the relationship between Johnny (Patrick Swayze) and Baby (Jennifer Grey). One of the film's most sensual moments features the two characters crawling seductively towards each other during a dance number. Surprisingly, the move wasn't part of the original choreography. Instead, Swayze and Grey were just practicing their moves prior to filming when they spontaneously added the crawl. The director, recognizing the magic of the moment, quickly incorporated it into the scene. This improvisational element added depth and passion to the film, proving once again that movies often benefit from allowing actors a little creative freedom.
