In Carol Reed’s O’Kafkaesque Odd Man Out when Dennis (Robert Beatty*) is surrounded by a gaggle of Irish o’nions, and one of the kids just repeatedly asks him for a penny, like an urchin’s mantra. Aw, brilliant.

*Robert Beatty, who went on in his career to play the US President in Superman IV, after playing a tanker captain in Superman III. Now that’s what I call a promotion.
