My Blue Heaven with Steve Martin - really funny

Shirley Valentine - love this lady and Greece

Out of Africa - so romantic 

3:10 to Yuma - love me a Western

Wyatt Earp - with Brad Pitt think this is the title but Brad utters the phrase I’ll be your little huckleberry!

 

sorry to ramble.


@Dulwich- it's such a shame that not more people know about Shirley Valentine. Every middle-aged woman should watch it at least once. I can't tell you how many times I've seen it. The best!

 

I will add a few more of my very favorites:

 

Dirty Dancing

Grease

Fatso

The Birdcage

The Graduate

The most wasted day of all is that on which we have not laughed.

@ Montana- surprisingly, Falling in Love was not a popular movie, considering it starred Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro. It's one of my favorite movies as well, and I have watched it over and over and over. Good choice!

One movie I forgot.  

Born Yesterday.  I loved Judy Holiday on that movie.  After I watched it for the umpteenth time. i started watching her as if she was the only one one screen.  I loved her reactions, facial expressions, and omg...that voice.  She was less stylized than other actresses of that era.  A little more natural

Gone with the Wind.  My first Father-daughter date back in the day.  Even in Greece when I was there my spring semester of sophomore year in college (subtitles of course).

 

The Wizard of Oz - went so far as to live in Kansas!  LOL!

 

Many of the film noir genre with Barbara Stanwyck and Lizbeth Scott.

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

I am definitely in the minority here.  I have never seen a movie twice.  I do not re-read books either.  There is always so many new ones I want to see or read..
