5. Un Chien Andalou Un Chien Andalou (French pronunciation: An Andalusian Dog) is a 1929 silent surrealist short film by the Spanish director Luis Buñuel and artist Salvador Dalí. It was Buñuel's first film and was initially released in 1929 with a limited showing at Studio des Ursulines in Paris, but became popular and ran for eight months. The film has no plot in the conventional sense of the word. The chronology of the film is disjointed, jumping from the initial "once upon a time" to "eight years later" without the events or characters changing very much. It uses dream logic in narrative flow that can be described in terms of then-popular Freudian free association, presenting a series of tenuously related scenes.

b. Robert Louis Stevenson
c. Elizabeth Barrett Browning

e. Lewis Carroll
f. William Blake

9. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" is a short story in The Jungle Book (1894) by Rudyard Kipling about the adventures of a valiant young mongoose. The story is notable for its frightening and serious tone. The story follows the experiences of a young mongoose named Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (for his chattering vocalizations) after his adoption into a British family residing in a bungalow in India, both as a pet and as protection against venomous snakes. After becoming acquainted with some of the other creatures inhabiting the garden, Rikki is warned of Nag and Nagaina, a pair of cobras angered by the family's presence on the territory which they had previously dominated. Nag enters the house's bathroom before dawn but is attacked by Rikki. The struggle that ensues awakens the human family and Nag is killed by the father. Nagaina attempts revenge against Rikki's human family, cornering them as they take breakfast on an outdoor veranda. While Nagaina has been distracted by the wife of a bird named Darzee, Rikki has destroyed the cobra's unhatched brood of eggs except for one. He now carries it to where Nagaina is threatening to bite the child Teddy while his parents watch helplessly. An enraged Nagaina recovers her egg but pursued by Rikki-Tikki to the underground cobra's nest where an unseen final battle takes place. Rikki emerges triumphant from the hole declaring Nagaina dead. His future role is to protect the family by keeping the garden free from any intrusion by snakes.

10. Winston Churchill (1963, President John F. Kennedy) A person of exceptional merit, generally a non-United States citizen, may be declared an Honorary Citizen of the United States by an Act of Congress or by a proclamation issued by the President of the United States, pursuant to authorization granted by Congress. Seven people have been so honored, five posthumously, and two, Sir Winston Churchill and Mother Teresa, during their lifetimes.
