Picture Game: Influenced by?

OK - new game!

You find an image from a movie and a similar image from an earlier movie that you think may have influenced it. Note the word "may", hence the "?" in the title of the thread.

I'll kick it off.

The opening scene of Dune.

Influenced by the opening scene of Night of the Hunter?

This is what gave me the idea. Just watched Night of the Hunter on Blu recently after just having watched Dune a few nights before. I was immediately struck that the post-credits opening scene in NOTH was a woman speaking directly into the camera against a starry backdrop, delivering a prologue, just the same as in the opening post-credits scene in Dune.

Uncannily, in those two pics their mouths are forming exactly the same shape too!

Over to you...

Plenty they showed that the other week on Film 2011 that the scene spawned many others similar most notable The Untouchables.

There's a scene in Equilibrium the
slicing off of the face
which was almost the same in Underworld which came out not long after whether or not it influenced it or not it was in my recollection the first time Id seen it.
