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)
my 13 year old girl loves the old films..... and your right they dont make em like that any more.. i also like the ride to the party where they all sing...
my fav song from that film is... once i had a secrete love...
Sorry Josie, Secret Love was from Calamity Jane ...hear the songs here

Casablanca
It's a Wonderful Life
Dr Strangelove (or how I learned to stop worrying......... etc.)
The big sleep
Jean de Florette
Manon des sources
The three "Dollar" films
Shawshank redemption
Fargo
Blues brothers

Midnight cowboy
Le triplettes de Belleville

Add The appartment and The producers if the Dollar movies count as one choice.
Is that the same cartoon as the one called Belleville Rendezvous? If so it is one of the ones that I agonised over before, regretfully, cutting it from my list. Great little film.
Yes it is the same one, mine is the French version.

Struggling to name my top 15, but my favourite part from my favourite movie is the end of Platoon.

After all the fighting when Charlie Sheen boards the heli and Barbers Adagio for Strings is played. Something about that song that really gets to me................
Barber's don't forget the punctuation, and why are you calling it a song anyway?

Saw an old favourite from my time in the Mob yesterday on SKY - " Fistfull of Dynamite", with Rod Steiger and James Coburn - with the on screen rapport these two seemed to have, they must've had a ball filiming it.
Did notice though, many of the films selected were the result of a far superior book - "Hunt for Red October", "The Cruel Sea" and "Jaws" being among them.
My favourite line ? "The lookouts report Zulus to the southeast. sir - thousands of them". (Colour Sergeant Bourne, ZULU)
