My memory (alway fallible) tells me that the films listed in the paragraph
above all had relatively lengthy color sequences.  What was so striking
about the moment in SPELLBOUND (no more than a frame or two) was that
one (this one, anyway) couldn't be sure that it even happened.  Was that
a real gun flash or just my fervid imagination?
