  A baby carriage on steps.

  Woody Allen pays homage to Potemkin twice. Bananas has a baby carriage going down steps.
Love and Death (1975)
  Broken spectacles on a bloody face and stone lions. Since Love and Death is a parody of all things Russian, it had to have some Eisenstein.

Apocalypse Now (1979)
  Francis Ford Coppola paid homage to a different Eisenstein film (Strike) by intercutting the climatic confrontation with scenes of a bull being killed.
