X had approached Y for help with a dream sequence in his upcoming thriller, Spellbound, starring Bergman and Gregory Peck.

Chirico has the same quality, you know, the long shadows, the infinity of distance and the converging lines of perspective. But Y had some strange ideas. He wanted a statue to crack like a shell falling apart, with ants crawling all over it. And underneath, there would be Ingrid Bergman, covered by ants! It just wasn’t possible.” ID both.
