We are huge fans of our local public library system. We watch a lot of movies, most come from the library. Having said that, there are probably a handful of the, what are we at now… 135? or so?, that have been found online. There’s one thread somewhere that had a couple three examples from British films. It’s not our favourite way to do it.
Many moons ago, and it’s ongoing, I started a ‘knitting in movies’ screen cap project. The ‘comics in movies’ came out of that. The best examples are characters actively reading comics. However, we will also take comics that you can reasonably expect that a character has read. See Daniel Day Lewis in My Beautiful Laundrette and the comics on the back of the apartment door. So something on a bulletin board in a bedroom or a cubicle divider? Counts. Steve McQueen doing the crossword puzzle in The Great St, Louis Bank Robbery can be happily extrapolated to have read the strip that is on the same page. People standing and talking in front of a newstand that has a spinner rack? Doesn’t count. Comic shown on a coffee table but we never see a character in a scene with it? Doesn’t count.
I should also add that at some point we decided that the trifecta was knitting, comics and someone holding a chicken (we would also take a duck or some other barnyard fowl). And they all had to be clearly accounted for. That film has been found. I won’t tell you what it is.
And yes! we have had ‘donations’ from the likes of Alejandro Arbona and Jamie S Rich. Finds are gratefully accepted.
