Cool short (few second) scenes preceding TCM films???

7 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone knows where those come from because for me they REALLY hit the nail on the head as far as being hauntingly familiar as to to old movies & stuff? I’m talking about the all night diner scene, late night (early morn) street scene w/ the cars parked along street, the guy at the ticket booth, etc. I don’t know how TCM did it, but those scenes are freakishly haunting to me (for a lack of a better description), & I’ve always been amazed at just how they could have come up with such scenes & music that hits the nail on the head like that.

ALSO wanted to ask if anyone else felt the same way about it.

I like it. :D

For your viewing pleasure, here is the last part of it in an animated gif. 

It is nicely done, isn't it?  That particular diner scene is from Pennies From Heaven (1981)

If I'm thinking of the correct clips part of it is from Siodmak's The Killers also besides the Kubrick film mentioned by someone else above.
