    Yes I like Audrey Hepburn alot! I also like Sidney Poiter, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Jack Lemmon, Bobby Darin, Tony Curtis and Sandra Dee.

    I forgot to put "The Apartment" and "Goodbye Charlie". I might have to look at my movie when I get home and see what else I have forgotten. Oh, oh, oh...."Lilies Of The Field"

    I'm all for a classic film club!!

    Some of my favourites are,

    • Some Like It Hot
    • Dr Strangelove
    • Kind Hearts and Coronets
    • Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
    • Kiss Me Kate
    • West Side Story
    • Casablanca
    • The Philadelphia Story
    • The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    • An Affair To Remember
    • Cinema Paradiso
    • Showboat
    • Jean De Florette
    • Battleship Potemkin

    I like old Russian films best. But I wouldn't really recommend them to anyone else. They're quite an acquired taste. But everyone should watch Battleship Potemkin anyway, because then you can understand what so many different films are ripping off.

Because I know all of you are AVID Classic Movie watchers.. give me a few CLASSIC CLASSICs to start off with :) And I am not talking about like 20 movies (jules/marissa/suzi i know you could list like 50 off the tip of your tounge) maybe like 5-10 (if you can narrow it down to that). Thanks guys!
