Films where the climax involves the threat of falling

The climax of many an action/fantasy film involves height/the threat of falling. Easy way to amplify peril. A quick list which I encourage you to add to in the comments:

Back to the Future
The Empire Strikes Back
King Kong
The Incredibles
Batman (and many other superhero movies including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Crow, X-Men, The Rocketeer)
Jurassic Park
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Beauty and the Beast
Die Hard
North by Northwest
The Poseidon Adventure
The Good Son
Up
Rear Window
Vertigo 
Saboteur
Blade Runner
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
The Towering Inferno
The Lion King
Mulan
Cliffhanger (of course)
