I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932)
The scene where James and his 'partner' hold up the diner is 'homaged' in the opening scene in the diner--looks too spookily similar (frame composition and lighting and style) not to be an homage??

The Outfit (1973)
Cody (Joe Don Baker) is threatened in a diner. When the hoodlums leave, one of them says, "You're lucky. You should play the horses" - a direct quote from The Killers
John Huston: The Man, the Movies, the Maverick (1988)
Huston chuckles to recall he worked on script in the service without Hemingway's knowledge.
Pi (1998)
The sequence where 'The Swede' is murdered in his hotel room is IDENTICAL to one in Pi (1998), where Max Cohen's door is shaking during an intense migraine. In Pi the door bursts open to pure white (culminating in a fade to white), and in The Killers, intense light bursts through to reveal the Swede's killers. Also note the reaction shot of Max and the Swede to the door 'jiggling' -- Their framing and positioning on the bed is identical, and so too is the editing sequence of door shot to face shot etc... A long and overt homage.
