It really depends on what you’ve seen, and how good your visual memory of it is.

You mean instantly recognizable in the general population? I’d recognize hundreds, as I suppose any movie lover would, but most of them would be unfamiliar to a present audience.

How about Rhett and Scarlett on the dance floor?

The foursome on the Yellow Brick Road, or dozens of other images from the same movie.

Maybe the witch-queen offering Snow White the poisoned apple.

Afterthought: Those movies came out in 1939, 1939, and 1937, respectively. That seems significant somehow.

@lucillelucillelucille That’s what I figured but I was trying to pull my ideas out of the cartoon train of thought. I thought about The Shining but that was way too spooky!!!

Professor Snape locked in wand battle with Professor McGonagall.
So many Harry Potter scenes. Harry and Hermione about to use the time turner.

“Master has given Dobbie clothes.”

Not MY daughters, you bitch! (epic effing moment, worth watching whole collection just for that.)

Hermione dancing with Harry (bittersweet)

Dolores Umbridge seated in front of her wall of kitty plates

Luna walking with Harry in a Hogwarts corridor, her shoes hanging from the ceiling.

This from Ten Commandments

This one of my all time favorite movie moments.

This there are better views, but not in small segments.

Alice talking to the caterpillar, and the hookah billowing smoke.

Alice and the queen playing croquet.

There are lots of great movie moments. I don’t see any reason to do only one per movie, though.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Patty_Melt I have done a few of those already but cartoons I have yet to do.
When I saw your Ten Commandments suggestion, I couldn’t help but think of Yvonne “There’s a man amongst the sheep!” DeCarlo. XD
That is a possibility
