There's a deeply touching 1962 episode of the classic Twilight Zone series called "The Changing of the Guard" which features virtually start-to-finish crying from the lead, male character (played by Donald Pleasence).  I'd post it, but the copies presently on Youtube are both of very poor quality.

Additionally, from the 1974 movie Murder on the Orient Express (with Albert Finney as Hercule Poirot), I remember a touching moment in the final scene when one of the characters -- I think he was a French waiter or chef -- breaks into tears recalling the death of his daughter and/or wife (sorry, it's been years since I've seen the film).  I can't find this on Youtube, though I do know that the actor who played the Frenchman was named Jean-Pierre Cassel.

I love that movie. The David Suchet remake has it's good points but it's too serious and when Poirot gets angry at the end it's a little too unbelievable

I thought the Suchet remake was excellent for about the first 15 minutes, then went downhill from there.  Most of the supporting actors were poor, and you're right:  Suchet's Poirot was inappropriately angry at the end (in the novel he acts nothing like that).  Also, the musical score was no match for the famous Richard Rodney Bennett one in the 1974 version. 

I should probably buy a copy of the Finney version from Amazon.

Re: Videos/Photos: The Holy Grails

I remember a clip from September 11, 2001 in which an American newscaster broke down in tears from the enormity of what had taken place.  I would search for it online, but that would mean running across a lot of other Sept. 11 footage, which I probably couldn't watch without having a panic attack.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png
