Parts of the poem also appear in popular culture. The Broadway musical Miss Liberty , with music and lyrics by Irving Berlin , an immigrant himself, used the final stanza beginning "Give me your tired, your poor" as the basis for a song.   It was also read in the 1941 film Hold Back the Dawn as well as being recited by the heroine in Alfred Hitchcock 's wartime film Saboteur .  Harpist and singer Joanna Newsom indirectly references the poem in her 2015 song "Sapokanikan," in contrast to the forbidding colossus of Percy Bysshe Shelley 's " Ozymandias ."  The poem is read aloud in the eponymous episode entitled 'New Colossus' in the 2016 Netflix web series The OA .
