My horn is bigger than yours:

57. The Vikings (Richard Fleischer, 1958)

PS: I'm still puzzling over the connection between #51 and #52. The anime girl looks like Sean Connery (Connery translated into a redheaded anime girl I guess that's what he would look like), Blofeld with the eye scar matches the shadow on the anime girl, the circle in the James Bond film is in a very similar position as the similarly shaped red pattern of the wall decoration and the red-coded land mass on the "You Only Live Once" map generally matches the red hair and dress of the "Maya to the poo town" chick. So there are plenty of parallels but I can't help but wonder about what blocho's actual train of thought was that led to to this particular "You Only Live Once" connection.

I was also puzzled about the visual connection between those two shots, but then I had a “D’oh!” moment when I finally noticed the the little black cat that the anime girl is holding (and of course there’s the cat that Blofeld is holding in the other shot). So yeah…I think it was as simple as a kitty cat.

It was, indeed, the cat.

But PdA is correct in thinking that little girl is how I always imagined anime Sean Connery would look.

64. Ich möchte kein Mann sein (I Don't Want to Be a Man) (Ernst Lubitsch, 1918)

Re: 51-52. I didn't even notice the cat. Even if I did perhaps spot it for a second, the cat in Blofeld's arms barely even registers for me in that 'You Only Live Twice' shot, he's just the movie villain with the cat, it has become part of the character, you get used to it and at some point this gets processed subconsciously within milliseconds, the same way that I typically don't consciously register Sean Connery's hairiness: >Facial features suggest young Sean Connery< >Is this a James Bond film?< >Man has hairy arms.< >Sean Connery confirmed. - Moving on.< >What about the frame that I'm looking at is of actual interest?<

69. Men (Alex Garland, 2022)
(As this is 2023 and the majority of the global population are city dwellers ignorant to the ways of nature and are living in a world of light pollution, I'm afraid I have to point out the connection for some of you. Well, here's the inside scoop: That bright line thingy in the night sky in both of those shots, that isn't a crack in the sky that sprung out of the imagination of some dude who meant to suggest an apocalypse. It's the fucking Milky Way and this exists for real out there provided that from your point of view on the planet Earth the sun is well below the horizon, the sky is unclouded and not all smogged up, and the area around you isn't flooded by the type of light that for our human cow-eyes registers as such (aka "visible light"). Study astrology, or, if you want to be more than just a dork, go on a camping trip every once in a while and viddy the stars with your glazzies to get a sense of your place in the universe and feel the touch of God.)

No, it was my mistake, I insist. I marked mine as 63, and you just followed suite by marking yours as 64, which is totally par of the course. I take 100% of the blame and I'm ready to hand in my resignation if necessary.

Resignation rejected. I like the religious aura we've evoked in the last 60s screenshots. I was tempted myself to add some sort of religious quote, not necessarily Judaic, about God, the light and our search/guidance in the darkness. But finally decided not to, didn't want to offend anyone.

Is this a real screenshot or a still of the shooting collected from the Internet? The sharpness, AR and contrast are beyond even the quality of the BR images I've seen.
