A research project conducted by two University of California Psychologists utilized film clips to elicit various emotional responses from their participants. Anger, disgust, fear and more topics were tested on 494 diverse folks. So according to the study the saddest movie scene ever is ...

from the 1979 film, Champion starring Jon Voight and Ricky Schroder. Watch the end scene -- if you dare -- here.

By the way, Meg Ryan's diner scene with Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally was the most amusing.

The study was conducted in 1995, so there is lots of room for an update.
