1. ‘Untouchables’. Good film, but do American filmgoers realise that the great stair/baby scene is totally stolen from Eisenstein ‘Battleship Potemkin’ (1925).

    • I knew that! My Cinema Survey class in college showed a back to back comparison of the two scenes. But I’m sure you are right that a lot of people probably don’t know that. What’s the quote about great artists steal and bad artists borrow? Or something like that? Such a great scene. I think I need to google “the baby from The Untouchables” now…
