Take Five in movies

Last week Harish and I caught Say Anything... on the tube. What caught my attention was not the performances from the dependable Johns (Mahoney, Cusack) in a rather peculiar tale, but the appearance of Take Five as one of the songs on the soundtrack. It appears (from an IMDB Search) that there are only six films that have used this jazz standard/favourite: American Pop (1981), The Conversation (1974), Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993), Mighty Aphrodite (1995), Pleasantville (1998) and of course Say Anything... (1989). I'm not very surprised to find that two entries are Woody Allen films.
