  2. Actor Arliss Howard is in the center of the top frame from “Mank,” when his character of Louis B. Mayer shows one of the places where he wants his movies to “feel emotion.” (And grabs his crotch.)

    The same actor is on the left side of the bottom frame as Private Cowboy in “Full Metal Jacket,” during the infamous “This is my rifle, this is my gun” scene.

    Obviously, they not only share crotch grabbing, but the same reverse-tracking Steadicam shot composition.
