End Credits movie sequence. Where did this shot originate from?

I'm trying to find the original source of inspiration for this seldom used shot. My two examples are the end credit sequences from Buckaroo Banzai
and The Life Aquatic
. In them, the characters walk towards the camera as it pulls back, and as we continue more and more of the film's cast joins the hero as the credits roll.
Did Buckaroo Banzai do this first or was The Life Aquatic inspired by another film? For some reason I feel that it may have been done before, perhaps by one of the French New Wave filmmakers. Or maybe it was used in a caper film? Maybe Oceans 11
I'm working on a project where I'd like to attribute this to the proper author.
