  12. cool i take it you like this film then... thats ok,, BUT why........ for me its the songs... and doris day,, she amazing..
  13. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - always reminds me of Christmas, not because it's particularly festive (though it does look quite cozy in them log cabins) but because it's a film I remember watching on TV from a very young age (every year) as it's always on around that time. I may even have been taken to the cinema to watch it as a little un, but that could be my imagination. The "fight" scene during the barn building is classic. They don't make them like that any more (thank fcuk say my kids)

  16. Josiecats - there you go.

    Once I had a secret love
    That lived within the heart of me
    All too soon my secret love
    Became impatient to be free

    So I told a friendly star
    The way that dreamers often do
    Just how wonderful you are
    And why I am so in love with you

    Now I shout it from the highest hills
    Even told the golden daffodils

    At last my heart's an open door
    And my secret love's no secret anymore
