The Bridge to Terebitha, Vertigo, one or two of Indiana Jones films (leap of faith bridge in 3rd).  Saw View from the Bridge on Broadway - had great seats but needed to duck during spitting scene.

On GALAVANT the dwarves and giants have a West Side Story feud over a bridge, in this hilarious parody of the "Tonight Quintet", while the fair lady points out they're actually the same height

Forward and backwards the same

Screen Shot 2020-06-24 at 7.31.07 PM.png

GOG (1954) If you spell it backwards, it's the same.
HOME SWEET HOME (1981) If you read it backwards, it's the same.
PALINDROMES (2004)

I can't help thinking of movies that contain palindromes like

HOLES -- the main character's name is Stanley Yelnats

ARRIVAL -- related to the alien language and bending time, Amy Adams names her daughter Hannah

THE MOLE PEOPLE -- This episode of MST3K noticed a name in the credits "Laszlo Gorog" was a palindrome, so they put his name into another famous palindrome: "A man a plan a canal-- Laszlo Gorog". (My family quotes this a lot)

And guess what--there's a movie from 2004 called PALINDROMES!

the first thing I thought of was the palindrome in the scene in Desk Set, where Kathryn Hepburn knows "Madam I'm Adam"" is an example.  Otherwise, the only one I could think of spelled the same backwards was Live Evil  (and no, I haven't seen it...)   Film Review: Live Evil (2009) | HNN

Depending on who's playing Oliver we could count OLIVER TWIST (in the play script he says he's 13) -- seen here from OLIVER
