I think "Pacte" and "Lincoln" are self-explaining.

1970, Love Story: the love, the drama, the loss, the pain ... and the happy chair?
Yes, what should have been a moment of dramatic tension and conflict in the movie, gets oh so slightly spoiled by a happily grinning chair in the back of the scene.
Maybe a not so picture perfect moment from the movie.

In the movie Julie & Julia, we get in a rather grim moment of humorous juxtaposition to spot the poster for Corman's Attack of the Crab Monsters on the wall of Julie's living room, right after she cooked Lobster for the first time in her life. Too bad for these creatures that this will likely be the closest they will ever get to see revenge for what is being done to them...
Less portentous is a framed ad for the movie The Angry Red Planet we spot later, when they relax watching a comedy spoof on Julia Child.

Paper Moon vs. Dreiviertelmond (Three quarter moon), 'nuff said.
If horror movies are anything to go by, then medical treatment is the generations number one fear. Zombies may fare better at the box office, but it's doctors that really put the scare in us.

This month the German SF-series Perry Rhodan celebrates it's 50th birthday, half a century old and still going strong - First issue 09/08/1961 .
That probably makes it the longest running continual series in history.
Although they managed in that time only one movie adaptation, which then failed miserable at the box-office, we don't let that keep us from congratulating!
Live long and prosp... err, wrong series. Best of luck for the next fifty!
