Thanks. It amazed me how similar (& dissimilar) TANGO & TIFFANY'S are in theme. Anyone noticed this before? The expression 'no-name slobs' appears in Tiffany's. And a wonderful anonymous Cat!

I suspect many of the Clint Eastwood films are about anonymity.

Depending on your definition of anonymity, I'd recommend Hal Hartley's Amateur... great film..

Thanks, Ben. Not heard of that before.
Just looked it up:

Sounds fascinating.
I wonder if 'film noirs' in general are often - in one way another - about anonymity? seems to go with the territory.

Also reminds me of Paul Auster's fiction.

Furthermore, are cigarettes (that seem to be wielded liberally in old films and old fictions) symbols for a longed-for anonymity within the crowding-in of angst-ridden monochrome pressures ... desirous to outface villainous life with these smouldering near-stubs.
