Writer's Block: Awesome Openers

What are some gripping opening lines from films or books, and why do you think they work so well?

A quote i like from Shawshank Redemption is "Get busy living or get busy dying" because it is life painted in a few simple words.

I love that movie and i'm sure the book is good too but my concentration is not made for reading. Maybe it will get better and i can read it some day. But for now i'm glad they made it into a movie. It is a classic.

It's not the opening line, but its a good line nevertheless.
