What is your all time favorite movie? Do you have one that has been a favorite for years and stills stands as the "all time favorite" or do you have a new one each year?

Mine is "Mr Blandings' Builds His Dream House". It is an old (1948) movie with Cary Grant and Myrna Loy as a couple who live in a city and decide to move to the country. The building of the "dream home" turns into a true comedy of errors. It is a wonderful funny clean wholesome movie. I could watch it every week.

Ok, what is yours? :D

The original version of "Wuthering Heights" Loved the book and the movie as a kid, still love it today. I hated the new version though.

Disney's Dumbo, the song "Baby Mine" makes me cry every time I hear it.

Gina, I love Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory too. My kids used to look forward to it every year. I remember when I was a kid, we used to look forward to seeing The Wizard of Oz every year, back then it was only shown once a year and it was a tradition to watch it.

I have 2 favorites...Rebecca (Olivier and Joan Fontaine-1940), and Suspicion (Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine-1941). Actually, I love all Alfred Hitchcock's films. He is the master of suspense.

well....it could be viewed as "rushing the season" as my dad used to say, but my all time, #1 favorite movie is :santa: "A Christmas Carol" :reindeer: - the one with George C. Scott....well - my favorite version of it is quite honestly the Muppets version with Michael Cain as Ebeneezer! (I'm a fanatic for the Muppets!!)

My next favorite would be a three way tie - still classics - The Wizard of OZ, The Sound of Music, & My Fair Lady.....


sheesh - am I dating myself or what?!?!
