SWARMS OF LAUGHTER

Man, I watched that old 70's movie the Swarm again for the first time in years. It's wonderfully campy but this one hospital scene had me in stitches. Michael Caine is helping a traumatized boy deal with this hallucination of bees he is having at his hospital bedside while a giant bee (and this is not photoshoped- this is in the actual film) hovers right next to Michael Caine as he talks the boy into understanding that what he sees is a a figment of his imagination. It's beautiful.
Here's a couple of stills from the film...
