That's like asking who's my favorite musician. But it's a challenging question, which I like, so here we go:
1. To Kill a Mockingbird
2. Dr. Strangelove
3. Young Frankenstein
4. The Big Sleep tied with Maltese Falcon
5. Blazing Saddles -"it's twue, it's twue!!"
Like Cooley, I love Sgt. York and The Dirty Dozen. I would also list The Great Escape, The Longest Day and Iwo Jima in terms of war films. Oh yeah, All Quiet on the Western Front (the original).
I have to confess to liking the Rock Hudson/Doris Day movies.
Shit, I completely forgot about the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, Martin and Lewis and Abbott and Costello (yes, Elvis Costello was a comedian).
