Film Moments

Recently something prompted me (perhaps talking to an old friend?) to go back and review some favourite films or film moments. My favourite film has to be the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari from 1920, like many who are interested in Expressionist art. Although the hand tinted colour version is harder to get hold of, and is definitely more striking, and it can be seen with a variety of different soundtracks.
But on going back to YouTube, I found some fine moments which I had either forgotten or not seen before.
Among them was a dream sequence that Dali designed for Hitchcock's 'Spellbound' at;

and a fantastic trailer for Jean Cocteau's Blood of a Poet at;
