Movies We Love and Can Watch Over, and Over and Over Again!

[ Edited ]

This was a really tough list for me to whittle down, but here goes.  My Top Three Old Classic Movies (in order):

 

Harvey, 1950, starring Jimmy Stewart.  I love him and his pooka.  Every single time I watch it, I laugh and I cry!

 

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, 1953. Mariyln Monroe.  I adore Marilyn, love all of her movies, but this is my favorite.  I don't think she ever received her dues for her comedic timing!  (It was a toss up for me between this and Some Like it Hot.)

 

Dinner at Eight, 1933, Billie Burke and Jean Harlow.  Satirical comedy during the Depression.  Burke and Harlow deliver in a big way.  Love this movie.

 

And in more "current" movies (LOL) I have to say Moonstruck, 1987.  What was meant to be a "little" movie turned out to be a huge success.  I adore Cher, but Olympia Dukakis (for me) owned this movie!  Love it!

 

And your thoughts and picks. . . ?

Saw a lot of movies listed that I absolutely can't stand LOL!

 

I LOVE "How Green Was My Valley" and cry my eyes out at the end every single time.

 

"Tora!Tora!Tora!" to me is a WWII classic.

 

And tied for 3rd place:

The Shawshank Redemption and American Grafitti.

I have more but those are 4 I love. Especially the first one.
