20 Cleverly Hidden Details In Iconic Movies

Audiences love an Easter egg — any detail, gag, or allusion hidden within the plot of a wholly new or otherwise unrelated movie. The only problem is that they’re meant to be hard to spot. But don't worry: we've done the hard work for you. Here are some of the cleverest Easter eggs smuggled into some beloved movies — blink and you’ll miss them. You'll never see these films the same way again.

20. Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction

Director Quentin Tarantino made his mark on Hollywood with his independent film debut, Reservoir Dogs. The heist movie follows a group of diamond thieves whose planned robbery goes horribly awry.

But it was Tarantino’s second film, Pulp Fiction, that truly established him as one of the industry’s greats. Many have said that black comedy is one of modern cinema’s most important works.

The Buscemi connection

But here’s an interesting detail that even Tarantino fans might’ve missed — one that weaves these two films together. In Reservoir Dogs, Steve Buscemi’s character, Mr. Pink, refuses to leave tips for those who wait on him.

Then, in Pulp Fiction, Buscemi plays a small role as a waiter. This detail is said to be an example of the karma that exists in Tarantino’s universe.

19. Raiders of the Lost Ark

Raiders of the Lost Ark introduced audiences everywhere to the adventurous archaeologist known as Indiana Jones, played by Harrison Ford. The Steven Spielberg-directed action flick is still considered by some to be one of the greatest movies of all time.

In fact, it’s even included in the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry for its cultural merit. But we bet there's one cameo in it that you've never even noticed.

From a galaxy far, far away...

Another famous face involved in the Indiana Jones trilogy was executive producer George Lucas. The partnership between Lucas and Spielberg not only resulted in an incredible movie but also in an amazing hidden detail.

In the movie, Indiana Jones lifts a stone slab while standing next to a pillar covered in hieroglyphics. One of the messages includes two of Lucas’ Star Wars characters – R2-D2 and C-3PO.
