This is such a good poll with such great scenes and cinematic moments. My vote: either the swimming lesson (that's my favorite scene in 'Moonlight') or the little girl in the red coat (which is easily one of my favorite moments in 'List'). I really love this poll.

Btw, I was trying to think if there were any iconic moments left out and I couldn't think of any. I thought there had to be one in 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and also in 'Paper Moon' but I couldn't really think of one that would be described as iconic.

Hey Ruby,

Thanks for your insights, they echo my initial thoughts when I prepared this poll. For me, "iconic" was a deliberate choice, if I went for "memorable", the list wouldn't end, so yes, I wanted to pick the scenes that are really part of cinematic memory. And it's tricky because most of these iconic child moments come from non children-related films... I couldn't even find iconic scenes from "The Goonies".

Regarding your suggestions, I wanted to keep one option by film, but maybe E.T. is an exception, that said, wouldn't you think that scene is more iconic than Gertie's scream;https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083866/mediaviewer/rm3448622080
and for To Kill a Mockingbird, isn't the "Miss Jean Louise, stand up" the film's highlight? or maybe that moment:

What do you think?

FYC:

Gertie's scream in 'ET:' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083866/mediaviewer/rm3415067648?ft0=name&fv0=nm0000106&ft1=ima...

Oh, and I got it! "Hey Boo." from 'Mockingbird:' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056592/mediaviewer/rm1071544576?ft0=name&fv0=nm0000825&ft1=ima...  (that photo isn't the exact moment but is within a minute of it)

I know your list is full now but this moment is pretty iconic.

ElM, 

Yes, you can add another image, as long as the one you are removing has zero votes. And remember to place it in the same position in the list.
