Here's a head-scratcher by way of Germany:

Aside from the dead body, which doesn't look like anything that actually appears in Mean Streets, we have the main imagery from the American one-sheet for Once Upon a Time in America essentially lifted wholesale for this German Blu-ray of Mean Streets aka Hexenkessel.  Does Mean Streets ever venture anywhere near Dumbo, or Brooklyn in general, for that matter?  Not that I recall.  The body at the bottom recalls the artwork from Goodfellas.  So, the German cover for Mean Streets evokes two other movies with De Niro, but not the one it is supposed to be representing.
