The Top Ten, er...Two Top Tens!!!
On Facebook, someone is always posting something about movies or great lines from movies, and I often respond to these topics as I LOVE movies. So when someone mentioned their top ten movie list, I wondered what my top ten are.
I thought about what would make my list. I decided the Number One factor is if the movie is on TV, would I automatically tune in? Would I watch because I love it and every single time I see it, I get the same what a wonderful film feeling?
I found I have a Top Twenty or Two Top Tens. In no specific order:
Mr. Roberts – the making scotch scene is hilarious and William Powell’s last
It’s a Wonderful Life
Stalag 17 – William Holden is brilliant.
Philadelphia Story – “C K Dexter Haaavvveeen” scene and Cary Grant
Raiders of the Lost Ark –Did you see it FOUR times when it was released?
Bridget Jones’s Diary
His Girl Friday – the snappiest dialogue ever and irresistible Cary Grant
Man Who Shot Liberty Valance – there’s a real conundrum in this one
Rebecca –I often pontificate on this gothic mystery.
Rear Window – a peeping photographer sees a murder
The Quiet Man – John Wayne should have won an Oscar for this one.
The Thin Man
So what did I discover about my list?
6 Christmas-ish movies
4 War films
2 by director John Hughes
3 by director John Ford
2 by director Alfred Hitchcock
2 featuring Cary Grant
2 featuring William Powell – yup, big fan
Some are funny.
Some are mysterious.
Some are adventurous.
Please share your top three!
