Try BELL, BOOK, AND CANDLE. Gillian (Kim Novak), the lead character, is
a witch who is also a dealer in African tribal art. The opening credits
focus on the individual tribal masks that she has in her Greenwich
Village shop. It's very clever and funny -- when I showed it in class,
the students laughed at the seeming juxtaposition of the cast credits
and the "heads"!
