* The TropeMaker \ TropeCodifier for AstronomicZoom, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fKBhvDjuy0 Powers of Ten]]'' by Charles and Ray Eames (1977). It starts with a picnic blanket in a park and pulls out, marking every time the distance has increased to a power of ten, until our entire galaxy is just a dot in space. Then, we zoom all the way in again and keep going until we get down to the structure of an atom.

* Creator/AlfredHitchcock's ''Young and Innocent'' reveals that the real murderer has an eye twitch, then does a slow, dramatic tracking shot from the lobby ceiling of the hotel, through the dancer-filled ballroom, and up to a close-up of the eyes of the [[UnfortunateImplications blackface]] orchestra drummer. No points guessing what his eye does. (Although when you consider that the actor had a big, heavy camera rushing toward him, needing to stop just inches from his face, maybe the eye twitch didn't involve much acting.)
