Stanley Kubrick's perfectly symmetrical, one-point perspective is represented, of course, but so is Mary Poppins, Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre, and a personal favorite, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. And what about the bar-top dance from Pee-Wee's Big Adventure? Mussolini's massive visage in Amarcord? Father Merrin's haunting introduction in The Exorcist? All here, all gorgeous.
Check out a few of our other favorites below. And, if you're in a following mood, visit Movies In Color, a Tumblr that collects the color palettes of classic films. (io9)
