    Your picture is pretty enough and some of your posts are interesting, but I do not know about your movie list. It seems rather uneven to me.

    1776 was great on the stage but proved a box office disappointment on film. William Daniels reprised his role as John Adams, and he remains the best thing about the musical.

    I could easily forget An Affair to Remember and Amadeus was bizarre. I am unsure which Anne of Green Gables you mean, there are several versions. Arsenic and Old Lace with Cary Grant is great! Rge Aviator had some good parts but ran too long and mostly stank.

    Bachelor mom was funny but medidocre. Batman begins is just a martial arts film using the caped crusader as a springboard. The Bellboy with Jerry Lewis makes the French laugh, but leaves me cold.

    You would consider Big Jake a best movie of all time? No way that makes any sense! Brother Rat is interesting and the Cheaper By the Dozen movie with Myrna Loy and Clifton Webb was better, and pro-life as well, in a scene against planned parenthood!

    I have not the time to give critiques of all your films and why so many of them are not truly great. Rather, I will remark quickly on the ones where we find agreement:

    The Gods Must Be Crazy
    Gone with the Wind
    It’s a Wonderful Life
    Kind Hearts and Coronets (truly great!)
    A Man for All Seasons (great play and film)
    Music Man (okay)
    Robin Hood (with Erol Flynn!)
    Rockey I (and II)

    What? No Wizard of Oz?

    You would equate The Ghost and Mr. Chicken with Don Knotts with the greatest films of all time?

    Sorry, you are cute, but this is just not right.

    The greatest movie musical of all time is not even on your list, Singing in the Rain!

    Hope you do not take offense, I was searching blogs, and found yours interesting.
