Scene Stealing

Raging Bull, 1980

Boogie Nights, 1997

Alas, YouTube has pulled the above scene because of (simulated) nudity. The point was that Paul Thomas Anderson ended his classic with this sly homage to an earlier one. I’m not sure he’s ever told anyone, or that anyone has ever pointed it out before. No dick jokes please (unless they’re really funny).
