So what is yours?

Mine is Cool Hand Luke with Paul Newman. I couldn't imagine that life.

Another is Steve Mcqueen in The Great Escape.

They just don't make them this good anymore.

The last best was Tombsone.

Definitely has to be Some Like It Hot with Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and of course, Marilyn Monroe.

Casablanca. First time I saw it, was shocked at how much of the dialogue was familiar. Part of our cultural bloodstream.
" the Germans wore gray. You wore blue."

Wow, tough question. For me I would say The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Clint Eastwood is one of my favorite actors. Another would be The Adventures of Robin Hood with Erroll Flynn, I loved this movie since I was a kid. Great thread Bob!

One of my favourites is 'The Sting', but that one really surprises you only the first time.

The one that I like to watch again and again is '12 Angry Men'. Great story, excellent performances.

Brian, I guess it would be one that todays 'youts' hasn't seen.

Or maybe if you now have gray hair and you saw the movie as a young one. Biggrin

BTW, there are some good choices here.

My #1 is the original KING KONG. I never get tired of it. Even Peter Jackson and $200 million dollars couldn't better the original. When you consider it was made only a couple of years into sound films, it must have been a real shocker to see it in 1933.

Hey Jack, Russell of course. Although they came out about the same time, I believe Costners movie was called 'Wyatt Earp'.

Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday was absolutely the best work he's ever done.
