* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/BackToTheFuture George McFly]] (or [[Film/CharliesAngels Creepy Thin Man]]) is Willard Stiles
** R Lee Ermey as Mister Martin (2003 version)
** Ernest Borgnine as Mister Martin (1971 version)
** Meredith Baxter played Eve in ''Ben''
* HeyItsThatVoice: An odd case of this trope occurring in a live-action movie. In the 2003 film, one of Willard's co-workers is played by Laara Sadiq (Chi-Chi from the Ocean dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''), and it's ''very'' obvious whenever the character opens her mouth. For what it's worth, the character is named Janice Mantis in the credits, but is [[NoNameGiven never referred to by name at all in the movie proper]].

Added DiffLines:

* TooSoon: Arguably an inversion. Robert Bloch wrote ''Literature/{{Psycho}}'' when the Ed Gein case was still fresh in the public's mind. For whatever reason, Gilbert waited 8 years. Each book was adapted to film, and each film had a remake, but Bloch's yarn is definitely more well-known. If there was ever a case against tactfulness, this would be it.
